Update of Beengirl's 55g reef

Added a hammer, some zoas, favia, couple others since last pics.
Here's my YWG, shrimp's still in burrow. Small brain is still trying to recover from angel. New-ish red eye favia. Green finger leather.

Blue chalice has actually had about 1/2 growth over last 1 1/2 months or so! Green Montipora. Tried to get shrimp, but he was being shy.

What I think is a brown birdsnest, which has come back from near death after angel was removed. oh, and PJ the bangaii.

When I got my radioactive trumpet a couple months ago, it had 5 heads. Just noticed that it has 7 now!! There's a very small head starting off the middle head. I guess my corals are happy. Yea!!!

Ok. So I gave in to my daughter and got a GBTA. It's very pretty, a little bleached (pic makes it look more bleached than it actually is), but hopefully it will color up over time. It was only about 3" at the store, but now that it's in my tank it's HUGE!! Put him at the top, he moved down a little, but has really spread out. Got it at a great price for the size, only $40. I've seen many half the size that cost more, so I'm happy. Hopefully he stays where I can see him.

Now we'll see if the b/w clown even notices it.

Thank you so much!! Yes it is a bf. It fits perfectly into this corner niche I had. I have a Kessil LED light in ocean blue. I just got some moonlights today, but I need to get 1 more cuz of the odd shape, it doesn't really light up the right side very much. Here it is with the 1 set of moonlights.

Haha yeah I guess I'm a little tough lol or just really honest. I really think you did a great job and you should be really proud of yourself! And yes patience lol you can do it.

It's the best part! It's like watering a beautiful garden all summer, the end result is worth it

I have faith in you.
