    I like the rock work. Lots of room for corals.

    Everything is looking good in the tank and so we've started to re-stock.

    Just introduced, pair of Blue Throat triggers just finished quarantine together
    -male


    -lady


    In Quarantine, Marine Betta, healing up after a small fungal infection
    -Using his tail spot to hunt and feeding from tongs



    Stocking list, this is the dream list, and we will have to thin it down to which ones we want / will actually fit
    -School Anthias (next on the list)
    -Fox Face
    -Large Starry Blenny
    -Tangs, (clown, sailfin, impulse buy)
    -School of small yellow tangs
    -More impulse buys
    -Harliquin Tusk

    +1 on the blue jaw pair. I love mine. Makes this troublesome hobby worthwhile.

    Thanks. I've been wanting a blue jaw pair for a while. We're going for interactive behaviorally cool fish like the pair or a school of anthias.

    Been a while since I updated the thread for this Display Tank. We've recovered from the crash in June pretty well and everything seems to be surviving. Added a couple more fish since finishing quarantine and one or two corals.



    We were running three standard cheap full spectrum import LEDs. August we added two additional strips from Doyle as supplements have seen some great improvements to our color and growth, planning on adding a couple more strips.

    Bubblegum Digi:


    Jedi Mind Trick:


    Purple People Eater Cyphastrea:


    Branching Cyphastrea:


    Trachy:


    JF Sunset Stylo:


    Rose Nems, Added two in opposite ends of the tank.


    Couple new Fish fresh out of Quarantine

    My new favorite, Marine Betta, spent 12 weeks in quarantine after fighting a fungal infection from the shipper. Now eats from tongs and follows you around the tank when working on it.

    By the time we realized he couldn't get himself back out it was too late. He gone. Before that the female hid all the time, now she's out all the time and fat and happy. I have a theory she may have shoved him in deeper on purpose.... Lol.

    (Ehren's out hunting this morning or I'm sure he would have answered first, lol)

    Ha ha, she might not be one to mess with. I really liked having a pair so we'll probably try again. I like triggers and they're one of the few that can be reef safe.

    Orange on Blue/Teal:

    And the fourth. Won at auction and still sitting till I pick a few more grow outs to make shipping worth it (Oregon Tort on the list too). Suppliers pic, not mine, obviously. It's been under Onyx's, so I'm thinking the new frag tank.
