    Can you train them to clean your tank, kill the red bugs and flat worms and frag your coral for you? Hmmmm......

    Alright guys, time for another update! Please update with any changes to the conditions of the environment it is in, or how it's doing now. Please do this by Monday January 21st, 2008.

    Please post a picture too if possible.

    Well I had to spin mine around a couple of weeks ago when the IC gel gave way in case you notice it's back wards. Also, I've been struggling to keep my calc up and I just ran out of tests and calcium so I have to run to the LFS. Not to mention my cheap camera battery's are dieing so it's a little fuzzy. Man I have tons of excuses today :D

    edit: updated pic

    Hey everyone, even I'm tardy at updating. With all the DBTC craze going on, I think we'll need some more incentives. For now please update if you can =)

    Thanks for the reminder Art. I'm not seeing any growth on mine. I got a fairly small frag and I've had to remount it twice but it's nice and stable now. No new pics, still looks the same.

    Another month goes by.

    no worries guys, the ELOS is still doing well so my prized frags are alive. Fish are still alive too. I'll probably have to miss this swap though, I am in the process of moving (not yet, but looking for a new place in san francisco), so lots of stuff to do, and don't want to introduce new corals until the move is done (a few months).

    Anyway, back on topic. Post updates of your milli!

    Lost mine awhile back as well, so no more pictures from me. Good luck on your search for a new pad, Art.

    Let's see some pics of these mini colonies!

    Man maybe I should have gotten in on that deal you guys were doing, here I was worried about my algae issues killing the coral :D Although Jeremy's firetruck monti that no one wanted that I grabbed is doing fine.

    Would be cool to have everyone who still has a frag post the starting and final growth shot :-D

    Mine is way behind the back. Hard to get picture of it. Can't do top shot too because of the 1" thick brace.
