To change it up a little I decided to practice taking fish pics.

Golden Rhomboid Wrasse
This fish is on my bucket list. I need a bigger tank...

Bubba, this "work" thing has clearly gotten out of hand lately.

Might be time to reassess priorities.
Haha, I hear ya. Top Shelf Aquatics reached out to me last August and offered me their photographer and online position as their previous employee was moving. I agreed to fill position.

Taking pics all day of coral doesn't leave me with a lot of desire to rush home and take more pics.

I am grabbing a lot of mariculture colonies from Top Shelf Aquatics and will be filling my tank with them. Indo was closed for so long we rarely seen any new and exciting corals enter the hobby, so now I am going to take advantage of having access to the colonies. As having something new is exciting I will be excited to share pics of them. Hopefully I find an Indo gem, lol.

Stay tuned for the return of pics!


Making me get the itch man.
I haven't heard from you in a while! Come visit me at Top Shelf Aquatics ;)

I posted this to my IG but forgot to post it here also.

One of the mariculture colonies I got from TSA about a month ago. It is doing really well and is growing new branchs down on the bottom right.

I don't really share much pics but I figured I would start so I can document my journey and sps growth. I will upload new photos of new sps as I get them or have time to take more photos. Here are a few to start with.

With you having only small SPS have you had to start dosing yet? I bought my first SPS today and am worried I don’t have the time to keep doing regular tests, so I would like to know, how many SPS corals do would you have to start automatic dosing?

You are looking at a post from several years ago.

Sps are a little harder to keep if you don’t regularly test. You need to test alk regularly to know if you should dose. Once alk and calcium drop them you dose to keep it from dropping.
