Made it back from vacation and rushed into the office to top off waters, food and dosing in case they were empty. To my surprise, everything in the tank looks OK! The SPS even look like they're sprouting new branches!!

It's late, so photos are taken in sunset mode and the wrasses are long asleep in the sand.

Both digis sprouting new branches and birdsnest frags still alive, although one piece got knocked over. Goldenrod and stylo still looking OK to me.
1701067550583.jpeg

Even the psammy is branching! I should go on vacay more often :)
1701067587974.jpeg

Base of this acro is not looking good, and there is an Aiptasia growing behind it. No bueno. Tomorrow I'm hitting it with boiling water.
1701067639184.jpeg

Mushrooms also taking off. Now have 2 green carpet shrooms and 3 "superman" rhodactis. The regular green rhodactis is looking better than when it went into the tank, can't complain. Still struggling with the octospawn, but it hasn't given up yet--polyps are out a bit more during the daytime.
1701067781228.jpeg

Pectinia, which now has an entire corner of the tank all to itself, has been getting much bigger than the sliver it was when it was added to the tank and went from 1 eye to 4. I do love these pectinias, even if they take up too much real estate (@Goaway ).

Bad news is that the 10g frag tank is crashing. It doesn't have an adequate ATO for such a long time away, so I saran-wrapped the lid to prevent evaporation. The birdsnest and alveopora are toast, the glass is covered in film algae, and it looks like cyano is starting. Chemiclean on the way, not dealing with nutrient management since there's barely anything in the tank. Zoas still look alive, but not at all happy. I've got a lot of learning to do in terms of frag tank management.

A gorg fell over onto the favia and green RFA and looks ticked off, but I found a bristleworm underneath it and helped it out of the tank. Maybe the wrasses are digging around and knocked it over.

Overall, glad that the display tank is looking good after 9 days away!

Friends! Reefers, monster and nano! Lend me your eyes! And your opinions!

Which of these guys should I enter into the POTM contest? This contest is crazy with some of the best pics I've seen, so slim to zero chance of winning, but maybe I can make the 15 list!

A. The Orange Fungia Plate
1701068774874.jpeg

or an earlier shot:
1701069080705.jpeg


B. The Goldenrod Anacropora
1701068830310.jpeg


C. The Torch
1701068886464.jpeg


D. The Scoly
1701068909370.jpeg


E. The Conch... oh wait, not a frag
1701068947820.jpeg


F. The Trachy
1701069014475.jpeg


G. The Spitfire
1701069141867.jpeg


H. The Valonia.. wait a second!
1701069176077.jpeg


I. The Toadstool and friends
1701069208559.jpeg


J. The Conch... wait, what is he doing here again!?
1701069249379.jpeg


K. The Octo
1701069300230.jpeg

or this one
1701069324032.jpeg

Or this one
1701069371442.jpeg

It was my favorite coral at one point. Hope it recovers.

L. The Bubblegum Monti Digi
1701069787572.jpeg


M. The Green Carpet Shroom--maybe not a "frag" since there are two big ones now.
1701069832178.jpeg



Right, so the conch clearly wants in on the POTM, so hopefully we get an invert category sometimes soon.

I can edit, crop, enhance any of the above within reason in the Pixel photos app. Happy for suggestions!

I realize this is futile as there are too many options. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Can you get a reasonable picture at a sharper angle? Mostly the frogspawn, plate, trachy, and scoli. Also let us not forget about the conch!

I don’t even want to think about POTM. I can only take photos of fish but the only fish category they’ve done is the one fish I don’t keep.

but to answer your question I love the toadstool. It really pops in your lighting with great contrast between the polyps and body.

H would be a good joke though… I think you’ve inspired me for POTM!
Let's see, what else might we misconstrue as a "frag" that's not coral? Any crabs with missing legs? Chopped off head of a Eunice worm? hermit crab without a shell?

Any actual human babies in the mix yet, or said I throw mine in there?

Sad day. Soliciting friends on facebook so that I can participate in more giveaways, specifically giveaways that want me to tag 2 friends. I have one FB friend, my wife, who is not very friendly to the idea of receiving daily FB tags.

Pardon me I'm new in here :beaming-face-with-smiling-eyes:
Welcome, you'll love it here! We have a coffee room and donuts brought in by the big boss once a week!

I made a FB acct so I could join these giveaways. I also tried to join my neighborhood FB group, but they rejected my request, lol. Blah blah "real people accounts, not pet or anonymous accounts" blah blah. Couldn't be bothered.

By golly I might like it here! Unless the big boss is @tbrown , in which case I suggest we double check the donuts.
