Glad everyone else likes them. I can't wait to see how they start growing out. The one 'different' one is really neat too. I've never had zoas like this, neatest things I've had before were orange bam bams. They are pretty neat too, as I have them in different spots in the tank since I broke the frag up and let the current take them to where they land.
In other news, has anyone seen that flame scallop? I sure can't find him, alive or dead.

Oh, and I forgot to add. The new overflow sits much lower in the tank than the old one. New water level is lower and the birds nest is officially out of room to grow...up atleast.

Did some minor maintenance on Monday. Had to clean the skimmer as some algae got sucked into the pump. I must say, it is much easier to take the pump apart on this guy than it was for the reef octopus.
I was also able to clean up the small powerhead in the middle of the tank. This has resolved my small chunk of cyano that was in the tank, so quite pleased there.
Currently, working 6 days a week has taken much of my time away from the tank, so not many observations or pictures or anything cool at all...I ended up moving the new zoas to a different spot as only 2 of the heads are opening currently. Haven't seen improvement, and hoping it is just because I only see a small snapshot of my tank during the day currently. I also need to find a new spot for the chalice as I think it might be starting to bleach some. The lighting should be great for it, in the sandbed and off to the side of the Radion...I really need to turn them down some again, as Ecotech recommended. See what happens after that.

Man, 6 day work weeks sure have kept my hands out of my tank. So the only logical thing to do is go tactical on the tank today!
Most of the battle has taken up a ton of the posts in this thread, vermetid snails. Cost me the most, if not all, of my periwinkle montipora...REMOVED. It appears there is some life left in a part I was able to keep in the tank. I also just started removing everything I could regarding their life.

Though, that is just a tiny guy. I found tons of them hiding in a place I for a long time suspected...which was also REMOVED.


I broke a piece off, as well as the original base from this monster and glued it together. let me tell you how much of a difference things look now, just excuse the blues as it's almost lights out.

I had been pretty upset over the coco worm finally passing away. I really liked mine, and will probably get one again in the future. But, what on earth could make me happy you say? Why, finding my other filter feeder I thought vanished.

That is a birds nest bigger than your head that is now in the trash. Was filled with them and all kinds of algae. All but the top 1/3 was alive, and still strewn with algae.

Went out to simply get some mysis as I ran out. Came back with some and rotifiers. Add an elk antler for my dog and things are getting interesting. Then...a 'moonstone' coral and a oulophyllia. Odd considering the oulophyllia is called a moonstone...but the moonstone looks like it is a frag of a worm brain to me. Busy screwing with my Radion schedule so not to murder these beauties. One thing I am going to do as well with the Radions is take out the red.
