Thanks guys! The tank is slowly coming along. I'll probably place another coral order next week or so. I'll be ordering from spikes corals again.

Duncan is still angry after his fall.

Zoas are all sprouting additional heads.

Purple polyp monti (my favorite coral as the poylps are a beautiful shade of lilac) is encrusting her frag plug.

No mushroom growth.

Current stock is a single blue/green chromis. Rehomed the two clowns and damsel. I guess I should look at some truly interesting fish.... and a cuc! I love my snails!

Funny your comments about the fish and snails. Sometimes I look at the tank "hey, what are all my snails up to. Good job guys" and completely forget even to look at my fish.

Lol exactly! Someone once said to me "I like critters" in reference to their reef tank. I didn't understand then and rolled my eyes.

Found a teeeeeeeny tiny aipastia on a "frag" of live rock I had purchased. Boiled lemon juice and put it on it. Tis gone now.

Was considering getting some hermits with fire red legs BUT dont want my snails to die.

Lol! Does that work? You don't worry about it getting in the tank??

Quick update. Something is VERY suddenly going on with all my tanks. Even my mushroom is totally retracted which I have never seen it do.
