I need to get some good night shots so I can loose all the stupid shadows
no matter what angle I seem to get a shadow
at least at night I can turn off all the lights and just run tank lights and get no shadow

Does the shadow really bother you? You could get a supplement strip like a Panorama or something.?

no taking pictures I get reflections from all the windows in the room
were up in the mountains no curtains or blinds so we get great view
we get the occasional peeping bear or elk looking in the windows

this is the shadows I'm talking about

Oh I see... That's a great view though. Down here in Florida, you're staring at your neighbors pool.

muti color brain lobo



hairy gonipora



assort zoa's

thought I had picts of them

growth has been astronomical I've noticed a few of the newer corals getting ready to split , the dosing has made the biggest impact on the tank , even the zoa's have taken off they were growing slow now they seem to be spreading a lot faster , as soon as everything wakes up this morn including me I'll get some new shots,

all corals were between 3 to 8 inch in size

1) bubble coral to replace the bubble coral my stupid clown popped

2) flower leather

3) chili coral

4) crown leather

5) finger leather

6) yellow button polyps

7) blue and green button polyps

8) star polyps cut up and used as fillers

9) assorted yellow , green , blue , red zoa's I split up this zoa as it was 6 to 8 inches to spread the wealth in tank

10) assorted yellow jacket zoas split up was about 6 inch

also working on adding more blue lighting

I got some picts but I'll get more once they all open

















Now I finally can say its full
tomorrow I have a bunch of inverts coming assorted snails along with assorted hermits, I also have a lot of macros coming, looks like most of them will hang out in my sump ,till my rock comes on thurs than I can start the 37g macro tank
Ill get more picts of the 90g after all the coral open along with picts of the 37g build

blue zoo out of California
I said to myself why pay so much on frags when I can get full size corals for the same price
that list above cost me $208. it averages out to $20 per coral give or take
and they pay the overnight shipping costs
the box got to me at 10am today over 1/2 the corals are fully open already and its now almost 5 pm
