I like all lps. Probably going to start with some brain corals, blastos and acans. I have a koralia in the back corner and a return pump that came with the cad tank. Here is my tank from all 3 sides. I've always loved the dimensions on this cube. It's like having 3 tank fronts

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 :(

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
