    Looking good! Might want to pick up some emerald crabs before the bubble algae gets out of control.

    I got two in there but they dont do much and I dont want them to start eating my corals, which Ive had happen before... I just scrubbed a few of the rocks and try and keep a close eye on it.

    German Blue Digitata...

    Moved the Bubblegum Digi to a better lit and flow area, hoping to see some growth and get a better photo soon... ZoaGarden.jpg
    Here's a look at my Zoa garden, over the weekend I hooked up with @ashburn2k and swapped some corals and rearranged my tank. A little more space without the 5 anemone in there now for SPS and zoas to grow. What zoas would you like to see me add???

    One of my new guns, Alien Orgasm zoa

    And this new gladiator got added in front of the new Fruit Loop zoa which Ive wanted since I got my new tank. Thanks again @ashburn2k !

    Been a while, I have noticed some zoas disappearing or closing up, not sure which. But last night with lights out I flashed some light into tank and saw a few of these small little flea looking pests moving pretty quick in and out of the corals... Could these guys be eating my zoas and what the hell are they? I got a video, but not sure how to post.

    You can look up copepods and amphipods and see if that's what your seeing in your tank.

    The ol' anemone split again! Pesci has to make choices...

    Does it look like I need to increase instensity of light???

    Rasta's could look better for sure...

    If you do increase the light, do it slowly.

    I bumped it up from 70-75% intensity, and keeping an eye on it... Im assuming when they're reaching like that they need more light? The other option was to increase the length of time, but I opted for intensity...

    Anyone out there wanna chime in if it looks like my zoas need more light or too hard to tell?

    I would say they are reaching and could use more light. Aside from increasing the light you could move them closer to the light.
