i think the reason everyone is asking is we have not seen any with orange fins and black and white bodies, is that the lights doing that or is the fish really colored like that? if you dont mind me asking how did your previous tank explode?

No that's their coloration. Super beautiful fish. I went back to my LPS and they have another pair there. Must be something their provider does.

And the tank exploded bc I bought it second hand and didn't think to ask how long ago it was sealed. Water slowly got in between the panes and forced open a corner. I was blessed that I had just done a water change and was standing in front of it with buckets when it began to go.

Just an update on my tank. I've got it to a place where I am very happy with it. My tank now has a yellow tang, heavy black percula, flame angel, dwarf fuzzy lionfish, goby, cleaner shrimp, multiple species of hermit crabs and snails. Plus I just Added a branching hammer coral to my tank which sparks the beginning of a mixed reef.

Just got a new montipora to add to the collection. It's been a few months and I have been taking it quite slow as far as adding life to the tank. However, everything is showing a lot of signs if growth! Adding my ATO system I think has a direct correlation with this.

My sacrophyton and crown leather are getting quite large and my zoas are beginning to become a garden. (Any ideas of cool zoa species to add?)

Anyway, wanted to show were the tank is after 7 months or so

Cheers

Love the tank and setup, amazing! Nice photography too. That must have taken a long time to setup.
