    Glad you like that shroom! Its a pretty quick grower.

    Steve showed me it at the show, it's def a nice size! I'll take a frag of it when your ready hahaha


    A picture update is coming soon, I just snapped a few and will be editing soon. Gotta watch the new episode of big brother first lol. And maybe the walking dead too

    So here are a few pics I took. Due to the lack of room on the rack some of the pieces are really crammed together. So anyway here it goes

    First up is the Reef Hero Canada Blue Demon

    Beautiful frags, you got many corals on my wish list.
    IMO you need some kind of SSC , and ORA red planet.

    I had a huge colony of red planet a few years back, it ate up a huge amount of real estate so I'm not sure I'll go with that piece again.

    Thanks Cheryl! The pearlberry is probably hands down my favorite acropora of all time. I can't wait to grow this piece out again

    Yeah, the problem with the Pearlberry is they look like garbage for a while until you start getting some nice growth. Then its a matter of "why are all of those pretty colors coming out of that dull gray stick?"

    I think 13 of those gems came from me, but two are for George's friend who could not attend LEAR this year.

    Looks absolutely amazing, George! Very nice haul! Glad I could return the Beach Bum to you and all the other amazing gems too. Brad's Drop the Mic acro is awesome to see in person. You are going to enjoy that one as well. Seth, Nathan and Ed all had amazing corals at LEAR too. :)

    Yes I'm happy to have the bum back to me. And it was a huge surprise to my wife, I didn't tell her I was getting it and while we were walking around at the swap she kept talking about how that is her favorite coral and I need to get it back lol. So it's safe to say she is happy to see it's return.

    Got to admit, I'm jealous myself hahaha. I'm really happy that my tank is doing well again. And I agree a happy, healthy OP is hard to beat.

    Autocorrect may have struck, are you saying that you ended up losing last year's Homewrecker? If so, let me know if you want a replacement at a significant discount :)

    Ugh I wish it was autocorrect. Trying out zeovit was one of the worst decisions I ever made haha.

    Dang thanks man! I appreciate that buddy!

    Neptune will tell you to buy a new pump I assume or impeller from previous discussion I have seen poses but wouldn’t hurt to try.
