    Thanks for the tip, Norman. Sounds easy enough. Don't have another tank to throw them in for 12 hours, but I can rig a bucket up w/a heater and some circulation.

    I'll bring along my dremel and some other stuff if Ian doesn't bring his bandsaw. :p

    Yup, Ian picked it out and I paid for it. :p

    The clam is small, somewhere between 1.5-2", but looks sweet. I finally got him to attach to a piece of rubble instead of the styrene bottom.

    Thanks, Eileen!

    Kind of hard to. Here's a sideshot of the little guy.

    Here's the topdown shot. Got a mad reflection off the glass of the light, but gives you an idea of its colors.

    Arnold, the clam came from Karson at AC. Ian saw it on one of his trips. :D Not sure if there's any others since I wasn't there in person.

    Thanks, Sam and Roc.

    That was of course the nicest one there. He does have others none as nice. Karson did say he got some maximas in though.

    Just some updates on some of the pieces in the tank with some pictures for color changes/growth.

    One of the SPS picked up at OT (Tong has this piece also). Accidentally broke the top part off and had to glue it back on.

    Green slimer picked up from Perry.

    How come some of your pics have a black background and some have blue?
