    My tank is such a mess right now. The corals are growing out of control, but I got stupid red slime algae and have to pull the fish out to QT cause of ich. It just won't go away and Mario is miserable.

    Making up RO water now so I can do a water change and fill the QT tank. I will be giving them a freshwater dip before putting them in QT to just for SnG.

    But enough with the chat here are a couple pics.





    My duncan is big and happy


    These whatever zoas are growing like weeds

    He's still a bit shy but finally got a pic of the nut. Blake wanted to name him Luigi but it was Dallas turn to name the new fish and he named him Ninja.

    Hmm didn't put that I got a copperbanded butterfly. Well I got it over a week ago. I have it in QT with all my other fish to kick ick. I know he's been eating something cause he's staying fat but wasn't sure if he was eating flakes or the mush I made. Well finally today I saw him eat flake food!!

    For those of you that don't know these fish they usually die kind of quick because they never eat prepared foods in the aquarium. To have this dude actually eating flakes and me seeing it is a great thing.

    Update:

    Got some new corals a little bit back. All are zoas. Magicians, Angrybirds, Ninja Turtles, and Purple People Eaters. Hope to get more soon and get some frag plugs so the ones I have now can be fragged.

    Copper the copperbanded is still eating, but I don't think enough and he's not happy being stuck in QT. Hope to be able to put them in DT in about 3 weeks or so.

    The Flameback still don't have a name lol. And I finally bought a light for the tank. It should be here tomorrow Smile

    I tested parameters yesterday and amazed they look the way they did lol.
    KH was 9
    Calc 23 if I remember right which is 400 something
    Phos 0-.25 yes that's bad I know......
    Trate 0

    I would have figured the trates would have been high but nope.

    pink Pocillopora
    on the egg crate is superman montipora. Rubberband or zip tie that down or it will go poof...
    And thats a hammer torch hybrid

    That toadstool leather was just a speck in my tank then it got to about half that size before my bubbletip nem decided to sit on it.... a lot.... So I cut it off put it on my frag rack and poof it was gone. few months later when tearing down that tank I found it under the rock pile all pathetic. moved it to the 100g and it was never happy, give it to you and its happy as can be lol

    I need to get a FTS of my tank one day soon. All is well and Fern's fungia that I'm watching are doing great. Also got a black cap basslet but he's still to shy for a pic.

    Fern's fungia when I got it


    And now pic taken a few days/week ago It's the big huge one that's all fluffy and happy


    Even have a new baby growing where one of the bigger ones finally fell off. I'm running out of room for them all lol


    And my duncan has like 6 new heads although you can't see them all
