    At least it took you one night to get the tank wet not like some other people in the forum ;)

    ------Spring training update ------

    So by a stroke of luck, I realized that I filled this tank one year ago thanks to the pushing of b11. The tank is packed full of corals and I just added some sticks over the past few weeks. Some of corals toward the sides need more light but that will be taken care of shortly with the addition of a Kessil or two.

    Initially, I said:
    No sticks - Broke that.
    Will not overstock the tank - Broke that.
    Will not set up a dosing system - Broke that.

    Current fish list:
    Flame Wrasse
    Green Mandarin
    Ruby Red Dragonet
    3 x Bartlett's Anthias
    Mated pair of Darwin's Oscillaris
    Cryptic Wrasse
    Yellow Watchman Goby
    Blue Spotted Goby
    Randall's Goby
    Midas Blenny

    Holy smokes - Even more fish than I thought! See you next year! GO GIANTS! :)

    A couple of pics via the coral viewer and a FTS. One of these days I'll take the time to break out a real camera!

    All those corals look so big! Is that a jawbreaker I see?

    Yup, I have 8-10 Jawbreakers in there. Some are hidden between the rocks.

    I've had a lot of the colonies for quite a while. They've made it through tank crashes and then some. For scale, the big green patch in the middle of the tank is a chili pepper monti about 12" in diameter. I wasn't thinking real clearly when I put it there and the next thing you know it encrusted the whole rock. Oh well.

    How fast do your jawbreakers grow/drop babies?

    Not quite sure to be honest. There are a bunch that are less than dime sized so I'll assume those came about within the past 2 months? The larger ones are just starting to develop the red streaks.

    I'll take the ugly red thing that's taking up space in your tank.
