    Thanks Najer for following along! There are some of my coveted pieces on there, off the top of my head, Homewrecker, SC Orange Passion, Pink Cadillac, TCK Plutonium Pikachu, RR Pink Floyd, BC Hungs Truly Unbelievable, and RR the Vinh.

    I'm super excited to start growing colonies out of them hopefully.

    Testing something here. I feel like my pictures uploaded by Tapatalk are lower resolution than the originals.

    Here is the tapatalk version.

    I think the regular browser one looks sharper to me but my eyes could be playing tricks on me.

    Thanks Najer! Oh rats, that means I'm going to have to do a little more work when uploading pictures.

    The frags seem to be taking up a lot of your time. Is that an addiction problem? The sump does make a very modern towel holder. Maybe next year. Nice tank.

    I didn't realize it was that much different but I'm only staring at it on a phone screen. Thanks for letting me know! I'll put in the extra work next time!

    Oh it definitely keeps me busy but in a fun way. Not lugging buckets of water way but like an adding new toys and checking on their growth and coloration fun kind of way.

    Its like a cheating version of a nano... I get to watch the small scale changes and excitement from seeing new branches form on frags versus staring at my display tank and not noticing that a 6" colony with 30 branches sprouted one more branch.

    I'll give myself a goal of having that sump in by the time I get that tub back from you. Hopefully you take a long time with it.

    Hey bud,

    My angel stocking plans are below:

    -emperor
    -regal
    -flame
    -majestic
    -scribbled
    -Japanese yellowtail male

    I have the top four already, emperor in the DT and the other 3 in the frag tank separated by a divider. I'm waiting to ship out the golden butterflyfish I sold already to free back up the QT so I can get the last two angels and QT. Then I'll put all the angels from the frag tank and the QT in at once to minimize fighting.

    I need to hurry though because I got the smallest emperor angel ever and wasn't worried about him being territorial at that tiny size so I released him in the DT but he's starting to get big already. I think I got 4 months tops and at that point, he'll be bigger than some of the other angels I'll be introducing and that may be trouble.

    That’s beautiful. The big angel in your last tank was the most eye catching. It was always interesting to watch.
    Follow up on the fish list. Isn’t it gonna be not enough space for all those angels?
