Just a couple new pics here, mostly of the new additions. Now that the algae is almost completely gone, life is improving for these guys.

A FTS if you're into that sort of thing.

My Square male courtesy of Marine Fish. Stunning fish, and eats well. This guy aint afraid to wear pink, and he wears it well.

THis is the first and only fish my girlfriend has picked. She was just so intrigued by his hyper activity level. He is very fast, and I believe he is some type of Red Sea wrasse. Thanks to Saltwater City for "Torpedo"

THis is an acan I had to have from Dr. Macs. It is much better in person, but has a rainbow variety of colors.

Some pink zoas. Very similar to my AoGs, just more pink as opposed to orange. Maybe ring of fires, or whatever you call them. They were actually a steal at Marine Fish.

Rose mille. I love this one, and it is super colorful in person. THis is actually from Sailfins tank, but I got it via Saltwater City.

Just as another note, I ave for a while been keeping my tank on a low bioload, but recently I have added several fish, and I have noticed a much more agressive feeding habit in several of my fish .. THe achilles and coper banded were both casual eaters before, but now that the wrasse and anthias provide competition, they seem to have whipped out their A-game and started eating like madfish. I am actually pleased, as they do not show any aagression towards each other.

So the moral is, if your fish dont eat well....get more fish.

Thanks John. It is still just a frag house, but it is starting to come together. I am slowly increasing GFO, so colors are slowly getting richer.

BTW, that bonsai I got from you is growing like crazy. Both pieces have encrusted onto each other. It is gonna be a beast.

Ah, they look good, but certainly not growing quickly. I may have to move them around a bit. Right now they are just sitting on the bed on their plugs.
