    I made a YouTube video that focuses on the corals I got at the swap. I picked up: "Slimer", "Bali Green Slimer", "Pretty Pretty Princess Zoas", and a "Palmer's Blue Mille". Afterwards, I ran over to Neptunes and picked up a frag of palys for $20. They are similar to Magicians.

    Euphyllia,
    You get my vote for "Come back Member of the Year". Very nice tank.

    Forgot to post my built-in fuge setup. I purchased a 60w lamp fixture from Home Depot and replaced the bulb with a 14w = 60w 5000k fluorescent bulb. I got enough chaeto to half-fill my built-in refugium.

    Hopefully this will slow down the mild algae growth that I have, probably from overfeeding the clowns. The algae issue popped up when I added them. I've cut back to feeding a small portion every two or three days and I've ceased Oyster Feast dosing until nitrates/phosphates/etc. are at or near 0.

    Hopefully not too much. My tank is completely full of SPS and when the grow more than a few inches I'm going to need to buy new fragging tools. I assume that SPS don't play nicely with each other. More frags for BAR! :D

    Thanks. :)

    I picked up some mille frags from Diablo Corals on Friday. They had really nice acro colonies but I barely have room for frags, so this is how it's going to be for a while. I removed them from their plugs and put them on some rubble, also from Diablo Corals.

    Frags in acclimation...

    Lime/yellow...

    Here are the milles in the tank today...

    The blue/green one has red polyps that don't really show up with my camera. The lime green one is exactly the same as my Palmer's Blue Mille, just a different color. The blue one has tiny, short polyp tubes and the polyps are different from the green one.

    Found this guy in the tank...

    [​IMG]

    Never shared this guy. Got him when he was brown, and over time he colored up green/purple. I even saw some blue at one point. Was forced to move him because the cap was blocking his light.

    New location...

    The tips on my A. awi turned purple! :O

    My orange digi seems to be a Forest Fire Digi.

    My tank w/ silver polyps bird turned red! The camera doesn't pick up the red very well. I kinda liked it better the other way to be honest, but it may not have been the happiest the other way.
