Well it's been a horrible month, we had bought a birds nest about a month ago everything was going great, then our bubble started to go terribly wrong as if someone was pulling it off, it got so bad we had to dispose of it, then a brown fungus attacked our Xenia and also our Montipora sps
which we lost most of that, so after a lot of syphoning and removing bad pieces and weeding out a lot of Xenia, our huge leather began to get a hole in the center of it, right before we were to leave on a week vacation.
After the great advice of Hara and Steve S the leather is on the mend but we will be fragging it soon it is just too heavy. ANYWAYS, down to our new coral, well when we got back from vacation, the bleaching didn't stop, the birds nest was almost completely white and one piece of the Montipora was completely white. Got rid of both of those but had one big problem, our tank still had some problems, not a great idea to introduce a new coral into it, but we needed one for our little yellow coral goby that called the birds nest home (since our mated pair of clowns like to chase him)
So we decided to go fake, boy did it take some getting used to, bright pink but it brings color, so here's our new imitation coral so I thought I'd share and as you can tell by the pic the goby doesn't have a problem with it
