Here is the tank now. I've had it for a 1.5 years. Had a minor setback when i bought the Iwasaki 175W SE MH and didn't acclimate them properly. I lost a large green birds nest SPS and i only have a small frag of the mother colony now. Also my purple cap took a bleach hit as well as my red cap.

Anyway, here are some pics of the corals.

Red still but getting darker

Green mushroom

Blue mushrooms



New green shroom

Leather i fragged from a friends tank (can someone ID this?)



Bleached German Blue Acro, coming back

Frog spawn

New Leather

New open brain


Pumping Xenia.....grows like a weed

Purple Digita and my only surviving frag of the GBN

Green Slimer

Ricora and it's baby

Trumpet coral that EATS ALOT!

Let me know what you think.

that leather you ask about actually looks like a kenya tree. I would move that favia up to more looks like its dieing...(I could be wrong).

all in all, pretty nice. no fish?

I second the "looks like a kenya tree", tanks looking good. Thanks for the pics.

The favia is doing fine, it was getting too much light and started to bleach out a bit and turn purple. I lowered it and feed it often, it wants to eat every night!

Looks good. I'm interested to see what those zoas do in your tank. I got them from Derek and they had fallen behind something in his tank and were pretty drab. They were just starting to color up, with that little green ring around the middle.
