Yeah it's cool to see it all. I'm aware of what all is in there, just near to see it out.

One pretty neat thing I stumbled upon today. Saltwaterfish.com had their WYSIWYG email sent out, as normal. They had both the periwinkle colored monti danae that I have in my tank AND the harder to find orange montipora orange setosa. Really neat. Both really slow growers.

There are updated shots posted on 2.17. Nothing else has really changed except for the clam death and it was so small you didn't see it in the fts.

I don't have any luck with clams either seem to be able to keep everything else but I had to clams pass away on me, now it's like Carey said I'm afraid to try again but if I do try it's gonna be one at least 4" no more little ones

M. Setosa is a great coral. Slow grower but the growth pattern is incredible. It's my favorite coral in my tank

Clams aren't hard. The coco worm in my tank is supposed to be much harder to keep. But I'm starting to believe size has something to so with how things are going. Not sure what the size should play though, as it really shouldn't.
And yes, I love that coral. Really neat. Mine grew into the shade and I need to see if I can move a rock as the tips are bleaching in the dark. Still a very vibrant orange that started as a very small frag.

I've been wanting a setosa for a couple years now, but the only guy who has any locally wont sell them. :-( Maybe in the new 40, and maybe even a clam. I also think a larger one would be a better choice for me, the tiny one wasnt very durable. We will see I guess. lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Well, during water changes I noticed that the orange back wrasse is gone. That's a sad loss. I liked that fish. Oh well, can't get too caught up on it. I'll just keep it pushing as things that are in there have been stable for a long time. Don't know where it is, if it died in or out of the tank.
