Still waiting on the arrival of the RMS so everything can be fully squared away.

-7 windchill .... Ouch !!!! It's currently about 90 degrees out her in San Diego and the only thing cold is the beer coming out of the refrigerator !!!
A hat and sunscreen a must out here this week !!

Pff, that is actually kinda warm compared to how it can get.
In other news, the fairy wrasse is out and about. He just ate with the rest of the tribe so here is to finally being successful with acclimating a wrasse.

Nice looking wrasse! Kinda hard to see the colors of the corals, have you tried turning the blues down for pics?

Oregon tort seems like a pretty sweet coral, just wish it would grow more quickly so everyone could have some

I found that pictures came out the most true to life with the blues completely off. It looks ugly and yellow to the naked eye, but the camera pics up another story entirely.

Well, not really much to talk about.
The Lubbock's Fairy Wrasse has been great. I was expecting it to hide often, but it is always out and about. Pretty excited about that.
There was a new update for the reeflink software today that added a 'gyre' effect to the MP's. Debating on if I'm going to fiddle with it or simply leave well enough alone since I'm pretty content with how things are going in the tank currently.
The only other thing is that I still want that pearlberry. I'll think about it over the next couple of days, as it looks like I'll have Tuesday off to accept a package. Not that such a thing fuels my impulsive buying of coral or anything...
