And some updated shots of my favorites as I play with the white balance.


I like the red moth trap lol !

I know right? I had the door open all weekend since it was so nice...not really remembering a hawk flew into my screened porch. So work to do for later. I'm used to assassin beetles, since they come out of the walls when it warms up. I've actually caught them walking around inside the tank before.

But anyway, I have new coral coming this week. Don't recall if I mentioned it or not. I ordered a bubble coral and another "mystery" premium brain from saltwaterfish.com. Another rainbow monti is coming from reefs2go. And real excitement is that I just won an auction from aquacare on a maroon w/ blue polyp birds nest. Now just need to pick out one of them to tell my fiancee which one is our engagement coral lol. She loves staring at my tank.

I like it too. I'm a supervisor in a drug and alcohol program and took one of the ideas advocated to addicts to keep a plant... Just for me I got a clam when I quit smoking. I see it now that a more important life event should get something too.

Well, due to the storms that went on the flight was delayed with my corals. Thankfully, they will be turned into priority and show up tomorrow instead of today.

They should. The r2g hadn't shipped yet and saltwater fish always has oversized bags.

Ok. Order from saltwaterfish.com was here and sat in my house for several hours due to the storm rolling through and all roads home were blocked by trees being down. Just got them into the tank and...well...jesus. Here you go. Reefs2go order will arrive tomorrow with my rainbow monti. I've been talking to Aquacare about the maroon and blue polyp birds nest I won on ebay and got the invoice today.
Pics were taken right after being put in the tank and places besides coral already in there for comparison on my iphone.
the MYSTERY brain...

bubble coral
