Thanks Jeff, it's just Alien Eye chalice but It has been a cool coral. I grew it from 3 eyes that I got at the Reef Fest in November. I did take the pics as well, thanks!

Beautiful tank! I've never seen a hawaiian cleaner before, I'll have to look into that!
Where did you get yours?

Badger- Thanks, I ordered him in from California. They are a really fragile species so they usually don't do to well in captivity. They are also a fairly rare find (and a little pricey to boot). If you can find one the trick is to get it eating prepared foods asap. After that they are fairly hardy.

Connie- Thanks I really try to add things that are really colorful. So I tend to avoid things that are dull or not really bright. I usually won't buy something unless I get the "have to have that!" reflex.

Thanks! Yeah I myself am not sure if I like looking at the "monster" as everyone here calls it LOL In all actuality the only thing I don't like about it is it's too small!!!

I've seen his tank during the reef tour.  If you haven't seen it in person, those pictures don't even do it justice.

SGH360- Thanks, it's still not done but it's getting there. I'm always finding new stuff to put in it. The tank itself was finished in march but about 2/3 of the coral and most of the fish were moved in from 2 pre-established tanks. I am currently working on procuring a couple more interesting sponges, as well as another clam; but will be adding some more SPS and LPS soon. I'm also planning on the few final fish to add to the mix.

Sterling18- Thanks again! and the phyto and pod cultures have really taken off. My clams thank you!

I agree. One must see this tank in person to get the full effect! It's beautiful, Steve really put a lot of work and creativity in it. Good Work!

Those are some great photos of a phenomenal tank. My only complaint is that I found the WMAS about one week after the reef tour.
