I'm about to explode with excitement on this buy... It was 30$ and all of these corals are going to be absolutely beautiful IMO. Im still in disbelief, I thought I was going to get like 2 corals or so, not 5, let alone 5 decently sized frags. Most were under halides and the chalice was under t5s. I'll be putting them all at the Sandbed tonight. I don't know where I'm going to put them lol. I can't wait to see the colors under my LEDs, I'm about to pee my pants in excitement or something lol. It's pretty ridiculous that I'm 15 and I'm just about as excited as a normal teenager who just found out he got a car. I think I've expressed how I feel pretty well now... Pics soon, probably next monday because I'll be gone for the weekend.
Lol!!!! Hahaha adam..i am going to send over a nice big of birdsnest someday...i love how excited you get.

Also, do you dose anything to get your corals to grow quicker? I feel mine wont grow much...

Everything has been placed where I want it, the lights are at a lower setting and they were originally under halides, so they'll be fine.

The bonsai looks great but it's brownish, not purple (the tips are purple) I think it will color up eventually.

The slimer is my favorite, it's polyps are crazy and it is sooooo green.

Chalice is pretty, it will be staying on the bottom so it doesn't sting anything, not much room in my tank lol.

Tabling acro is cool, a little brown, but it will green up I'm sure.

The purple tip doesn't have much polyp extension, which makes me think more flow.. Well see in a day or two.

Fish are very healthy, I'm pretty satisfied with the tank now, the Midas blenny and canopy will be finishing touches

Bought an ato from autotopoff.com, and then the aqua lifter from amazon. Should make maintenance tons easier

Yes it will. I just got done doing a water change with my ATO as well, pretty awesome. Just moved the tubing into my new water and started scooping out old water from the DT. Worked out well. The ATO was the third best addition to my tank I made. First 2 being my radions lol.

Didn't even think about that! I don't know I kinda like doing water changes, I don't like making the water though.
