Wow looking good! Were these freehand or did you pick up a tripod? The focus looks much better.

Well one of my first coral additions to the tank was a 7 mushroom pack. 2 of them wouldn't stay put so I tossed them into the flow and let nature take its course . I forgot all about them until today. While turning off the algae scrubber lights this morning I found a nice purple mushrrom with an orange center about bigger than a quarter attached to the top of the return pump . Going to rescue it from sumptown today after work .

That is a nice find. Are the other originals still around? I've never heard of a purple with orange centered mushroom.

Not sure but I did toss it in the trash. There seems to be another one growing on top of the loc line segments . I will let it grow out some more then take a few pics.

Well after many months of not updating I have bad news. Light basically got fried and cause a slight fire ball . So I ditched the canopy and I am just going to keep it fish only for a while.
In other news the angler is doing great and eats like a champ. Seems to like exploring now that the corals are gone which is a plus.Any who a few pics.

That is one ugly fish, so ugly in fact i think I like it!

Glad your tank is coming along after such a bad turn, it happens though and the best you can do is mutter through the bad times and stay strong.

A face only a mother or father could love. I like how slagathor looks like he's peering out from around the rock as if to say "how you doing???"
