Just after that reply was sent I found out my neighbors are starting their own mental health therapy business and leaving social work behind. We all get along well so that might come in handy if she does experience postpartum depression.

Lets add some eye candy while I have a minute. The recovery projects are doing great! The Caulastrea is really puffy and the Seriatopora nub is getting very bumpy. I'm guessing this is going to be all the new branches.

My zoa garden that, despite being attacked by the urchin, is filling in nicely.

The Burning Banana Stylocoeniella is starting to make a strong comeback. I'm loving the yellow color in the tank. Sorry for the blur, some days I just can't take a clear photo of the corals.

One of my favorite spots to watch in the tank. I'm still afraid that something is bound to go off the rails with the RFAs and Pectinia so close.

Yeah, I saw that and I'm glad you were able to pull it back from the brink.

And apologies for misnaming it....Space Invader pectinia is what I meant.

Tank is doing quite well. Just wanted to drop a note to prove I'm still here. haha Baby girl and a bathroom remodel are eating up all my time. Hopefully I can remember to snap some pics and post an update.
I have a few frags I need to trade off so I really need to get some pics of them up.

Still here. Holy cow they don't lie when they say kids occupy all your time. If she doesn't need something I just stare at her (and the tank). Thankfully she seems to like it. Anyway, here's a little something until I can do a bigger update with cleaner photos.

Managed to snap a few photos the other night. Between a job promotion, a six month old and ANOTHER on the way, time has become a precious commodity.

I need to do a live stock update at some point as well. I don't even remember when the last one was or who was still there. I know there have been a few changes. Most notably to me is the addition of a Coral Banded Shrimp the nobody wanted from the LFS. It's name is quite fitting, meet Patriot. The "purple" looks more blue to the eye.

Recently some neglect let my nitrates climb high and my alk to drop. The only coral that seems to have suffered visually is the cyphastrea. I'm taking weekly photos to monitor the recovery or decline. Hopefully it survives.

I had some blue clove polyps appear from somewhere and decided that I am on the side the doesn't mind them. All my corals appear to be able to out compete them. It may be coincidence but it seems that the aiptasia was overpowered by the polyps as I only find it in the sump these days.

I don't seem to give plating montipora what it wants to be able to grow fast, if at all. The mystic sunset and tubbs stellata are growing fairly well though.

Everything else is doing great, especially my bargain bin scoly and S.I. Pectinia.

I have some frags I need to clear out if anyone in the MD/DE area wants to make a trade as well. I may actually want to trade my large Duncan and keep the smaller one. I also have some green mushrooms pictured above. One dime sized has turned into five over the course of a year.

This photo reminded me of something. My GSP rock worked perfectly! I put a magnet on it and stuck it on the back glass. On the right side there is now a patch about the size of a dinner plate. I recently cut the rock off and move it to the left side where it has already started to spread. The motion that it adds is beautiful. I'll have to make a video of the tank again one evening.
