Had to keep the whites on a little longer last night just so I could watch him. Hehehehe This is the whole reason I wanted to upgrade to the 125.

Little update. The Powder Brown Tang and the Lawnmower Blenny have settled in and loving life, the Solarinsis Wrasse is out and about all the time. All of the corals with the exception of the Duncan have adapted well to the new tank and new lighting. My two Rose Bubble Tips have found spots they like and are starting to bubble up (haven't done this since it split a few months ago). The Green Bubble Tip seems to have found a home too and is showing signs of bubbling (never has before) but unfortunately it is on the back side of a rock. :-(

Did pick up a couple of nice additions. Got a 12 eye colony of red acan for $15 and also a Green Cynarina coral for $15. Because all iPhone pics look terrible with LED lighting, the pic below is with no lights except daylight that comes through the window next to the tank.

Since snapping the above picture a couple hours ago, the Cynarina has doubled in size.

A guy in our reef club graduated from GA Tech and is leaving for his first job in CT. He put everything he had up for sale. I just happened to see his post firs and snagged the two before anyone else had a chance.

Thought it was time to shoot a vid of my tank. As is always the case, iPhone and LED don't play well together so the colors suck but in person everything pops.
