New 15H tank shots =) /56k warning

I have not posted much in a while, however I used to be a very regular poster on these boards. Then I had a baby and all that fun stuff so real life too over for a while Figured I would share some new pics of my tank. In the last few months I have gone from a 15H FOWLR with minimal Coraline to a reef-in-progress with Coraline covering everything in the tank.

Compression on these pics is horrible, I will fix that when I get home from work so they load quicker so its not like 2MB of images

Cleaner Shrimp, in the top right of the pic, you can see a new Mushroom and a Sinularia frag I recently got. This is on the side of the tank, I can not get to the Coraline on the glass:



The very photogenic Clownfish:



Clownfish in front of its Toadstool Leathers. The Clown is recently starting to host these:



Striped Xenia center, Metallic Green Polyps on the bottom left:



Pulsing Xenia, this little thing is the best. I angled my powerheads around so it always pulses, but still get good water flow:



Shrimp at night, neat pic:



Full tank shot. Mushroom and Sinularia frag top left, Pulsing Xenia bottom left, Royal Gramma and Clown left, Toadstool Leathers center, Metallic Green Star Polyps and Striped Xenia right, coraline everywhere:

BTW... my work has DSL and it still took forever to load.

How long has the tank been running? I wish my coralline would grow faster

What are you using for supplements calcium, etc....? Tank looks great! I have been using b-ionic in my tank for about a month and the coraline has started to go crazy all over everything.

The clown shots are outstanding. Clowns are always hard to photograph at least i think so since they never really stop moving.

No kidding! Those are some great shots! How difficult is it to keep up the water parameters?
