    Yeah that acro has insane PE at all times. Its super fluffy! :)

    Glad you like the zoas! That big blob of zoas is my favorite part of the tank.

    Beautiful!

    Lily doesn't look 'reef safe'. :)

    I am amazed by how your Palys and Zoas get along and look so nice and healthy.
    I tried to make a few rocks with a nice mixture like that, and quickly
    ended up with a miserable mess, then these ugly silver palys taking over completely.
    But I sortof randomly picked by color - oops.

    Tank looks amazing as always, but I LOVE the cat pic. Hilarious!

    Thank you! Lily looks like she wanted to swat my midas blenny around if there wasn't glass between them. She's definitely not very reef safe. Luckily her hair is though because it ends up in the tank ALL THE TIME.

    Getting them to grow together successfully is definitely hit or miss. There were a couple varieties on this rock that got choked out when everything grew in. Luckily I managed to get a good balance of colors and growth rates so that this rock stays healthy and nice looking. I just have to frag occasionally to keep the colonies balanced. I'm trying to do this on another rock with the blondies, rastas, pink zippers, etc that I posted a photo of, so we'll see how that goes. You've just got to get a group of them that grows well but not like weeds and then frag strategically as they grow in.

    Thank you! And yeah, the photo of Lily is my favorite of the bunch. She just looks so mesmerized by that blenny.

    That's exactly what I look like watching my Blenny. :|

    Haha! I probably look like that too when I look at anything in the tank!

    I just took a bunch of photos of the tank. I figured they were overdue since I've been focusing on the new build. :) Here's my new mandarin, Podrick, being handsome. :) [​IMG] [​IMG] The blue neon goby.

    Thanks, Dan! There are double the number of rics in there right now because I have the 10 I ordered for the seahorse tank hanging out in there until that tank is ready. Its quite the ric garden right now :)

    Ok guys, so I need some advice. Something is wrong with my midas blenny. He started looking a bit skinny a couple weeks ago and I've upped feeding as a result. He normally goes after food like crazy and is always begging for food, so I assumed he was getting plenty. The last couple days I have noticed he snatches pieces of food but then opens and closes his mouth like he's choking and then spits the food back out. I don't think he's managing to get much of anything down. I've been trying to feed him mysis, ova, pellets, and flakes but he's looking super skinny the last couple days. Does anyone know what the issue could be? What could be making him cough his food back up?
