    For the second and final picture of the night I snagged a picture of my tank nemesis. I'm hoping the nudibranchs clear them out quickly.

    Here is my diy T5 build in progress.
    Got the frame work all cut out and pre drilled. Going to head outside and paint it to match my halide pendants. The T5 frame will mount down the sides of my halide pendants for a nice clean look.

    Decided to finally try to capture a picture of this odd unknown creature in my system. Anyone have any ideas on this?

    So I had decided I was going to build my lighting system similar to my setup prior to the Led phase I went through. That meant adding the T5s.
    My actinic T5 bulbs will be pushed by the Workhorse 5. Great ballast years back and was happy to see they are still around.

    I completely agree, the color is amazing. More blue with the electronic ballasts and perfection with the M80 ballast specifically reeflex cube or Hamilton hqi ballasts

    Okay R2R made some progress on getting a better picture. I found this guy once again roaming the tank. He has doubled in size so clearly eating something. I followed it around the tank. Pods ran from it but it made no effort to chase. Looks like some kind of worm for sure. Picture is from the bottom of the creature obviously but from the top the thing is bright white with bright orange/gold spots and it also has two stalks of some sort on its head and they are black in color.
    So must have came on one of my purchases this year. One purchase was clams they went straight into the tank. I do not dip or qt clams. The other was coral from austrailia. was qt just not dipped.
    neither pic is good but can definitely see where the spots run along its back.
