Hey guys finally deciding to make a build thread, been very worried about showing my tank but here I go. Just to let you know the fox face and Zebra Eel will be moved once their bigger, so don't worry.
Stock:
GSP
Chalice
Rock Flower
Zebra Moray Eel
Black ice Clown
Picasso Clown
Fox Face Rabbit Fish
Tail Spot Blenny
Unknown blenny/gobby (No picture, very skiddish and runs into burrow, that is why I think it's a gobby but my friend who I got it from says it's a blenny)

Baby rock flower growing, just appeared when I started to make my "coral tower" (I know it's hard to see, it's so small)

Chalice coral, it got bleached when I was learning how it handles light and that part eventually shed but it's growing back, so that's why you can see skeleton

Looks great especially the eel!

Watch your fingers he looks hungry!! Lol
Hahaha, trust me nothing to be scared of with him. He's lived his whole life in captivity, hes really spoiled. Sometimes he won't eat unless I pet/rub him, hes sweet.

Quick update! The rock flower has been growing, it's about the size of half of a penny. Big enough that I believe I can ID it, the colors it's showing seem to be an ultra, very vibrant.

He's finally getting used to me so I was able to snag a photo, he was staring right at me in one but I brought my phone a tinny bit close and he flipped. So his face looks like a sleeper goby to me and with his fin shape too. He's also a few inch's long so I'm pretty sure he's some kind of sleeper goby plus he buries too. Friend still claims he's a blenny but he sure doesn't seem like one. Plus he likes my tail spot blenny which is kind of odd if he is a blenny. Thoughts?

Okay guys, those anemones have been popping all over my tank and it was really confusing. Obviously not aspitas or manajo, pretty sure they are jewel anenomes. Yeah they spread a lot but people say they arnt harmful, can tell by their color and dots on the ends of their tentcals.

Good evening, sorry for my absence from this thread, I've been dealing with personal issues, I've also been getting into the numbers of my tank and changing them to what will better support coral in the future. Sadly what it best for the long term is not always best for the short term, my chalice has taken a huge hit, I look forward to when it will grow back into it's former state. I did not take a picture of this because I am truly ashamed and saddened by this. Two weeks ago I was supposed to receive an order of coral, it was delayed, 7 out of 8 frags died. Now onto the bright side of things, one survived, a zoa, strong little guy. I've also been planning things, by the end of the month I should have a 5 gal canister up filled with chemical filtration, and also a cal reactor. Then by this summer I should have a 100 gal sump in the works (just a tupperware tub, not a 100 gal tank, obviously I'd use that as my display if it was), all of this will upgrade my full volume to about 173 gallons. In the sump I will have macro algae, and some fish I don't want to in my display because I like small fish in my display, I plan on having lion fish and a commet fish. Those are my short term future plans.

Here is that zoa/paly

Spent four hours cleaning last night. Tank looks the best it ever has, photos won't upload again. GSP has been growing rapidly, look very nice. Chalice is recovering, zoas are popping new polyps fast. Got a head of a blasto from my friend for cheap, we will see how that goes, been having vermin tide snails, small kind, so I'm not worried, they just look like accents for now, hopefully won't get too out of control, I'll keep my eye on them but they look nice with a vibrant red and purple tube. With the death of that coral order, I'm trying again, ordered last night, hopefully will come the 20th. I'm praying UPS doesn't mess up the flights again.
Got two chalices

Mycedium Chalice

Got a 2100 GPH wave pump going 3 seconds off, 3 seconds on, it's on the opposite side of the tank, works great. Got a marine orbit IC, so more light too, about 1300 PAR at surface.

Little delay but the corals weren't out in the cold like last time. All arrived very healthy and exactly what I come to expect from UC as in they are fantastic. I'll post photos tonight
