I really like those! The colors go well together. I just realized Ghostly was asking you for your rock flower anemone picture, not mine. Oh well, I took one so I'll put it here anyway. It's nothing amazing, but I like it.

I have been spot feeding my zoanthids with Reef Roids about 3x per week. They close and when they open again everything is gone. I am amazed by how much some of them will eat. I have seen some people on R2R say that feeding has no impact on their growth, but I can't imagine that this much additional food wouldn't make them healthier and faster growing.



The next day - what goes in must come back out!

My sicce 1.0 return pump stopped working again. I pulled it out thinking it was dirty, but it was not. I soaked it in vinegar and cleaned it anyway last time and it worked for a bit then it stopped working again today. How’s the warranty work? I got it used.

So I took it out, it’s not dirty. I pulled it apart and put it right back and it works again? what the heck. Pretty sure it will stopped a week later.
That's exactly what a pump I have on a freshwater tank does. Every now and then it stops and if I take it apart and put it back together it works for another 8 months. It's a mystery to me. I'm just glad it works again when I'm done!

Since I also started feeding Reef Roids to my mushrooms, they have grown quite well. Other than two I bought recently, almost all of them have split at least once, with both babies now much larger than the original one was when it split.

I started to buy mushrooms in February or March. For the Ricordea, I bought 5 from here (https://www.reefgardener.com/collections/ricordea-mushrooms) for about $100 including in-state shipping. The top green one and another were a smaller size for $30 each from my LFS. The center green and purple one I just bought on an R2R sale a month or so ago and have not split yet but one has grown a couple of mouths. I don't remember how much they were. I bought 9 and now have 15 or 16.

For the Rhodactis, the green one came from a frag swap for $20-$30. The fuzzy one and superman mushroom came from another R2R sale. Maybe $25 each. I now have 3 green ones (one of them is from when I accidentally cut off a tiny piece) 2 fuzzy ones and 3 superman. I bought 3 and now have 8.

Wow, I never realized how much I had spent on those. I need to stop buying things!

you should Tickle it!
Yeah, I did. We played for a while and are very close now. I fed it some one of my shrimp, it snuggled with my pinky finger. It's going to be tough when I slaughter it.

Also what zoa is that? I find PURE Kalk mixed with aiptasia X seems to kill it along with superglue

My gold dusts eat FULL vitalis LPS pellets that are like a centimeter each. They grow a head or 2 each week so its insane growth

Wow, that really is impressive! The aiptasia is on a CC Baby Dolls zoa. I'll just put it in a cup of tank water and Aiptasia-X it with a dab of superglue to seal it off for good.
