    image.jpeg I'm babysitting this bonsai for my LFS. Long story... But I want to see how it grows while I have it.

    Thanks! I have no other SPS in my tank, but I kinda like this one. I don't know if I want to give it back :)

    image.jpeg There I am, minding my own business and feeding my corals when I notice something behind my hammer coral..."What is that?" I ask myself......

    SON OF A MONKEY! That's a dang aiptasia! Grumble grumble grumble.

    I have no idea what it came in on. I dip everything but I guess they can survive the dips.

    Found it! Bone dry and hard as a rock. The directions say to add RODI if it gets too thick. Bone dry is a kind of thick, right? :D

    It came right back to life with some RODI added. Take that you varmint!!

    Couple of nice pickups yesterday from the LFS. Twizzlers and Darth mauls. $25 for 14 polyps of the twizzlers, how could I say no?

    I also picked up Aquavitro Fuel today since I've heard good things about it. I'm going to dose it twice a week and see how it turns out.

    I busted out the ol' DSLR and my extension tubes this afternoon. Here are a few macros of the new frags. Focus isn't perfect and the colors are little on the orange side, but not bad. :)
