That lubbocki looks like it’s a nice size, gotta try get some close ups of him!June 7. Back to the Future
I was taking pictures today with the new camera and thought I'd post an updated shot of the tank. For comparison I'm also including the previous FTS, which was taken a bit later in the day as opposed to the new one (so more of the blues are in-play on the older image). I've had a bit of a recession with the bright red zoanthid colony just to the left. There are three other zoanthids taking hold and a bubbletip anemone that's decided to roost in a few different spots, so it will be interesting to look back again in 6-12 months and see what else has changed.
This is the new lighting configuration I went with. I was going to tweak it further but the corals are actually doing really, really well - especially the SPS and LPS - so I'm probably going to leave it. GSP has been going nuts, so if you compare the colonies between shots there's been incredible growth on some.
You can see 32 out of 42 fish in this image. Our marine betta ("Beta") actually came out for a cameo (just sticking out along the back right behind the zoanthid covered rock). We even have a name for the rock - "Mount Doom", because two hermit crabs we named "Frodo" and "Sam" would routinely climb atop it when we had it in the other tank. "Midas" our blenny is of course in his barnacle and the others are off on patrol within the rock structure. Feeding time is a guaranteed head count!
