Little update.
For now, I have slowly moved some healthy sps over to the 30l nuvo. Not much space to work with, as stuff needs to be moved out. However, moved my FF digi, BG digi, purple/red graft plate monti, Seasons Greetings, and purple stylo over. They all look just fine in their new home. The nuvo 30l didn't cycle, I moved mature rock and some softies from my 20 gallon over, with mature water and siporax from my dt. All corals look as good as in the dt, this is a good sign.
So I cut some tester acros, they are up for sale, but in the next week, I will put a frag rack in the nuvo, and begin banking, should they not sell. The montis should help to get the system kicking into gear, and slowly, in time, I move stuff out to make room for more additions :)
Next week, I will begin to set the 20 gallon back up, this will then home montis, down the road.

Sexy Corals Orange Passion is one of those extremely beautiful tenuis, while I don't drool over tenuis, I find this one well worth the occupied space :)

I really haven't featured the Tyree Pinky The Bear, so here it goes. I find this one a must have for acro collectors, it may be common, but fully colored, it's a gem!

It's difficult to dislike a Tyree piece. They're visually appealing and there's also a nostalgic component to it. There are a bunch of heads on that piece too

Hi Rick,
Yes Tyree corals are classic, I suspect I will need to showcase my collection with regards. My PL is on point with coloration, but growing slow. Not painfully, like the BC Fleshdunce, lol... My Tyree Tri-color is an absolute gem, so beautiful! Get pics soon man :)

Well dang,
I only moved ff digi, bg digi, plate digi, seasons greetings, and purple stylo over to the nuvo. Tested alk on both tanks, alk in the main system is 9.2dkh. Nuvo was 6.7dkh. So, I took automated doser offline to lower in the main system, and buffered manually to the nuvo. This shows exactly how a few pieces can influence such a change. Granted, the montis are quite large. Now, I need to make some changes to automate both systems. Hmmm...
So no burnt tips in the main system, Charlie may have a great point regarding alk stability ;)

I dont know why but most of my granulosa/loripes are finally getting those long smooth branches, and hoooo-boy is it nice! ;D

Not sure if it is the maturity of the colony, having adapted to the system or what.

Man Tim, agreed, cannot remember a Granulosa with elongated branches like the Peng's Cherry Tip, so beautiful!
Nice and chunky pack ;)

That’s an awesome haul! That Peng’s is something special. It’s on my short list for sure.

Thanks John,
I am certainly happy with these pieces, but yes, that Peng's grannie is quite nice. BKChem Creme de le Creme lives up to or exceeds all the hype, it's a really interesting piece for sure. The purple Turaki is also nice and quite a solid purple color.

Nice additions Perry! You're going to need a bigger tank!

I have a 2nd tank filling up quickly, and another one cooking, but yeah, probably will do a larger setup next year. Probably a 180, but who knows, lol. I have an entire room that was a garage that's also empty, hmmm....

That's definitely a keeper, @Perry !

Yeah Rick!
Tim's colony is crazy beautiful!!!
I am leaving the on the rack awhile, so much planning to squeeze these in. Thinking about moving the rest of the montis out soon. I just started a tank for them, so I can free up the nuvo collector/back up tank, lol.

I really like BC Cricket Spine, Perry. I wasn’t expecting the lengthy and spaced-out protrusions you see on post no. 32

I believe you mentioned receiving a piece.

Hey Rick,
I did get the BC Cricket Spine and BC Skinny Love as a bonus piece. Both were on my list. Lucky me, lol. Ricky's version is amazing, not sure if he's still around, but had some crazy beautiful stuff!
