Update on the 75Gal.

Here are some photos I took of the 75 Gal yesterday. You can clearly see how scratched the tank itself is. The tank truly has lived a hard life but now you could say its in its 'golden years'.







The entire selection of photos can be found in my photo gallery.

I have a question for you, in picture 2 (and 3) I see a big yellow thing. What is it? I have a very small one growing in my tank that looks just like it.

Well with those pictures I can say mine don't look like either. I have a dime sized patch of yellow "sponge" growing on one of my rocks. your first set of pctures made it look like the yellow one but I guess not.

Tanks, looking awesome!!!

Is that a SPS coral (M. digitata), I see in the upper left (directly behind the small leather at the top of the aquascaping) in the first photo?

There are four of said SPS frags in the tank. One you mentioned. Another lower in the same pic and one visable on the right half photo. And one thats up and over the rock summit that was not visable.

The one you pointed out is the largest of the sections. Some frags are beginning to encrust on the rock.

And if anyone wants to identify this.





I have been told before what it is but honestly most coral names I remember for about the time it takes for the person to say the name. When its closed up there is a hard skeliton thats kind of branching.
