Made a pilgrimage to my favorite LFS this morning, picked up a nice little frog spawn for only $15 out of their bargain tank (picture coming soon :)) also picked up a pouch of Pods and some calibration fluid for my refractometer.. I love that place but my favorite sales associate that I have known for years no longer works there and the current staff are not as friendly or knowledgeable, just makes me sick :(

Nice Growth on those corals !!
Thanks Fadi! Think I’ve got the tank dialed in pretty good so now it’s just waiting game for it to mature.

My new little frog spawn, he was very angry yesterday after I broke him off the algae covered plug he was on and scrubbing him thoroughly with a stiff brush ;) Opened up at first light this morning and seems to be happy, pic taken this morning under LED’s my T5’s hadn’t fired up yet :)

I have been looking! I'm never sure how some people will receive an amateur.
No worries! The majority of people on R2R make me feel like a amateur ;)

Um...Retro, ask him who's Scopas has made me want a big tank!
I know.. makes me want one too and it doesn’t help with him flaunting her pictures about the forum ;)

Looking solid for 6 months!

The acans are gettin chunnnkyyy
The FTS shows off the acan collection really well!
Thanks guys! Not happy with the ceramic acan island even though it’s getting covered with coralline it looks to unnatural.. I’ll probably be replacing it with a flat rock or individually mounting them around the tank at some point.
