Our tanks are like kids. We raise em give direction and care and in the end they grow into what they were meant to be. Beautiful and unique
Well said Ray!

Yep, algae and other blemishes are part of reefing

Air guitar action shot ! Kids tank looking good. Hope ya got in lotsa quality time with the kids they be looking a lot older larger than my mind recalls from last pics. They must be in turbo grow mode :)
LOL, Logan suddenly loves drinking milk because he is about the shortest in his class (also one of the youngest).

More mushroom macro please! Let the whites come up a bit to help balance the blues and lemme see the last mohican of my shrooms! Any signs of splitting yet? I typically saw the center spot (light teal in color) split first, like 2 eyes in the center. Once u see that it could be a week or a month.

Have a great day and keep safe in the big city!
Thanks! Where I live is far enough North to be pretty quiet (about 40 minutes). Nice town near the Ocean. This is my view from the apartment.

Looking good!
Brian, I do think is time for a new snail or two. ;Wacky
I was thinking the same thing! Hermits keep killing them. Tough to get to an LFS right now with the virus too. On the list though.

Look at money or ring cowries, my tassle file fish shells snails for a pass time, hermits see no point as the shell has very narrow opening and is the wrong shape. ;)

Do they require sand? Seems I looked at them early on and they did. I would love a Fighting Conch too, but needs sand.

No just glass and rocks, my joint fav snail. :)
Good, I have something to research after the kids go to bed tonight. Been thinking of adding a fish too. Maybe I can get it all together. I actually think the LFS in Connecticut is open now, but I would probably go next weekend without the kids. Virus caution.

I love the feel you have for your tank, no rush and give nature a chance. :)
