    Ultimate aquarium, which had a bad fan and had to be returned to kessil.

    The z's and p's are doing a lot better than a few weeks ago. This pic is actually a few weeks old and doesn't have some of the new frags in there. Maybe I'll try for another photo today. :)

    Few new pickups from Aqua Exotic and Neptunes. I need to do new tank shots but I am just being lazy :p

    Gold Mauls, I call the second ones "Almost" space monsters and the last is just a nice orange polyp I really liked.

    Those are some great pictures. I'm a newbie so forgive my ignorance, but how do you get those close ups? Is it just that you tank is that small?

    Thanks!

    Some new additions today include a SWEET Forest Fire Digi, Blue Agave and Salted Agave. Some really amazing colors are being added to the tank lately :)

    Here are my Agaves. Blue Agave is on the left and the Salted Agave is in the center. Amazing colors and splashes on these. Some of my favorites now :)

    That does look good. Putting that on my shopping list, digi seems to do well in my tank.

    Looks freakin AWESOME!! Nice new growth..........stuff is really filling in. I can't believe you can keep SPS in 5 gallons of water. LOL! CRAZY!

    Thanks Mike! The trick is to buy smalllll little chips of corals.

    The standing joke with Kris is a "Dan size frag". Basically anything that gets chipped during maintenance. This little tank is full of Kris' accidents. LOL
