The lists actually left a couple of things out:
 
On fish, I also have a 2" Royal Gramma in there. You can see him in the very last photo,  hanging out between the Red Monti Cap and the Orange Ball Sponge...so, 19 fish in all.
 
And I left my 2 urchins (a Black Spiny and a Brown Spiny) off the Inverts list. You can see one of them clearly in the upper left photo on the "Zoas" slide... they are both small; about the size of golf balls.

Awesome tank Bob! Everything looks healthy and happy! Great coral placement too! Over 40 species and it doesn't look like everything is crowded or thrown in.

Honestly, my daughter just gave it that name because of the color scheme (neon orange and black)...
 
Here is a little better photo of the top side so you can see what I mean:
 
 
This photo was taken before the lights came on... when the tank is lit with the halides the starfish has a really cool neon effect; it almost "glows"...
 
I got it from LRNR beginning of February, and so far it seems to be doing great. It is about 5" across from tip to tip...

The heni doesn't bother corals at all - I got it at Aquatic Evo about 3 weeks ago

I figured I still had a little bit of room for more coral LOL so I picked up a few things this weekend...

Aquatic Evolution advertised a sale on 'huge" zoa colonies from Viet Nam for just $49... and they weren't kidding on the size!
 
 
 
For size comparison, my Richmond's Wrasse is 5+ inches long... the zoa colony is at least 9" X 4" and I guesstimate 300 - 350 polyps?  That's less than 15 cents pp Shocked
 
 
They're still acclimating to my tank a bit, but I saw them open in the store and they were awesome! I actually bought 2 and the other one is a mixed colony of maybe a half dozen types /colors
 
 
And while I was there I picked out another sweet Acro colony; beige with neon sky blue tips... the picture does not do it justice - the blue tips "pop" like unbelievable; and the colony itself is almost tennis -ball sized, with maybe 25+ branches... for $59!  Crazy prices down here in UT County Clap
 
 
 
 
Then I went up to The Aquarium and scored a few more sweet SPS (!)
 
 
 
A real nice Red Robin:
 
 
 
 
And a gorgeous Cali Blue Tort:
 
 
 
 
 
And my wife's favorite color is orange... so, I had to get this one. Around 3" across; not sure if it is a monti or what - but it has a cool orange 'pop':
 
 
 
 
 
Here's a bunch more random photos I took today.
 
Newest fish: Possum Wrasse
 
 
 
 
 
SPS Garden
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Yellow Birdsnest I got from Shelby (lskurys) a few weeks back
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Coral Wars - Blue Undata vs. Red Montipora!  The Undata says "the heck with you - I'll just grow right over ya!"
 
 
 
Got this Miami Hurricane from CJ (Mr Gray) about a month ago; it had 8 or 9 eyes when I got it.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Check out how many eyes now! (I counted 15!)
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Coming next... I just special ordered another sponge that no one else has... I need something really cool for the Reef Tour Wink!

Awesome tank BOB!
Here is what a customer said while on hold Oh my gosh! Did you open the door? I told you not to open the door. Dre is in here completely naked and he's got freak'n Macaroni and Cheese in his hands.
