Yes Marcoss, it hurt a tiny bit ;) I got fully back into the hobby in 2017 but then all this other crap happened. So this is a mixed bag of a year.

Thank you both! I've hosted the tour a couple times in the past, but it has been so long since I've been in the hobby, this year I think I'm going to go see other tanks. I'm planning on possibly hosting next year after my tank has had some more time to mature. Thanks again :)

Looks good.
We are having Reef Tour on Nov 4 if you are interested in signing up. You'd be agreeing to open your house to fellow fish friends for the day, so they can come out and see your tank in person.

Well things have been amazingly crazy. I broke over a dozen bones in both my hips and needed major surgery. So that slowed down things in the tank arena. Luckily, my mom is extremely nice and knows a thing or two about tanks, and she took care of basic maintenance while I was down. All in all, they put humpty dumpty back together again somehow....


Then, I decide I feel better enough for a new tank adventure and start a simple biocube thinking about doing a seahorse tank. Unfortunately, it cracked after I started it for only a couple days. All it had in it luckily was water, sand and rock (no livestock).


Wife nearly shut down the hobby after 30 gallons of water began shooting unto my desk and floor, but things worked out well for a disaster and nothing was ruined in my house. 

I am now enjoying just one tank. I've had a few fish deaths and a couple corals died while I was in the hospital, but mostly things have been going well. My current fish list includes a yellow tang, 2 clowns, cleaner wrasse, leopard wrasse, ruby red dragonet, pajama cardinal, banghai cardinal, yellow goby, and a cling fish (so cool). Since my last update, I have lost my fairy wrasse and anthias, both jumped. The butterfly also did not make it more than three days as he developed an eye issue and died shortly thereafter.  

Here are some updated tank shots:


Things are growing well and I'm pretty happy with how things look especially at the top. 

Top down.

Hope you enjoyed.

Figured I should update. I'm still irritated by my camera (filters have not gone well), and I miss my old camera. My pics of my last tank were sooooo much better. However, tank is doing amazing. I'm sticking with 100% LPS. My latest purchase is a Copperband Butterfly, and I know these are finicky eaters. Any tips would be appreciated. Also my frogspawn continues to decline while everything else is doing great, go figure? Enjoy!

Candy cane that the male lives in at times. The rest of the time he shacks up with the female in my open brain. Maybe this is his dog house.

Updates. I can't seem to control myself now that I'm back in the hobby. Hope you enjoy!








Now I just want blastos, acans, a black sun coral, and a yellow one. I'm running out of space but have tons of room under my rockwork for sun corals.

I'll look into those filters. I'm definitely not getting the pics I want. Thanks for the tip.

Things look good! Sorry to hear about the corals though. The euphyllia will sprout new heads in no time!

Edit: If you don't have a DSLR you can buy little orange filters for your phone off Amazon or eBay to help tone the blue down and bring out better, truer colors from the corals. I'm thinking about buying some myself.

Well had my first hiccup this last week. First, I had cannibal peppermints go hog wild on a new fungia. I've had dozens of peppermints in the past with no issue, so I don't know what triggered them to attack a healthy coral. However, they are now banished to the sump and the fungia is sad looking but making a recovery. I wish I would have banished them faster as I left them in an extra couple days as I couldn't believe they were really causing the damage each night. But after catching them red handed in the day time, and then seeing the immediate recovery once they were banished, I'm 100% sure it was them.

Second, my frogspawn fell off the rock and landed face down in the sand one night. I thought it was okay but after a couple days it stopped expanding on two of the four main heads, and they have quickly been devoured by brown goop (BDJ most likely). I'm siphoning off the gunk leading to increased water changes and so far it looks like two of the heads will make it. Fingers crossed.

I hate how blue everything looks with my camera phone. I'm running lights a bit blue but not like how it ends up in the pics. I miss my fancy camera :(
