One thing I am going to do as well with the Radions is take out the red.
Don't think Ive heard of a moonstone, cant wait to see it! Pics soon?

A couple of pictures from my day and the two of the new coral...though blues are on and it is hard to see anything.
Gorgeous beta that was in a planted tank at my LFS

Two guys craving starfish

'Moonstone' in the middle.

And the other guy

Nice looking pieces from what I can tell. The last one a blasto? That is a very colorful betta and I love the harlequins. Thoroughly enjoying mine.

No, it is an oulophyllia. I'll never remember the name of it. Also known as a moon coral. Usually mistaken for brain corals. Not a piece I'm that familiar with, in all honesty. Saw it and snatched it up after some quick reading.

Ohh, very cool. I probably would've had to snatch it up too. Corals I've never heard of or seen peak alot of interest to me if you know what I mean. Nice find.

Just a quick water change day update. Was able to swing into my local Ace and grab some Loctite gel. Needless to say, I should be vermetid snail free at this point after the purge of the giant birds nest and now gluing 7 inside their shells.

Put an order in for an epic ton of snails. Also going to give mangroves a try again, just because I can. When I get home from work tonight it'll be another round of 'find the vermetid'. Got another one this morning. Just watching for webs and am sure there are more hiding in my trumpet coral, which is where they came in from to begin with.

Snails came yesterday and were acclimated. Put 3 of the mangroves in the overflow and 2 in the sump. Want them to be in a controlled area while I wait for them to start to root.
