    Alfrareef - Thanks so much for the kind words.

    Mebeknob - Good luck with your future projects The barn wood is not cheap. :)

    Rev - Thanks!

    drawman - Appreciate it.

    ksfulk - So true. Thanks for the view and comment.

    locito - mindblowing is quite the praise. Really appreciate all the kind words. The butterfly went in after all my tangs. He spent 8 weeks in QT then 2 weeks in an acclimation box in the tank. Even after the 2 weeks, the tangs still pushed him around for a few days. IMO, the key is getting them eating in QT before going into the display. If they are not eating before going into the display, the stress is a bit too much for them.

    rev - Thanks again

    tweeter - Glad you liked it. I posted that one up for you.

    Aqua fire/medit - Thanks so much.

    Desmond - Thanks for the view and comment. The recaps are my favorite for sure.

    Chromis Peek-a-boo

    Nothing special but I kind of liked this shot of the Chromis framed out by a couple corals.

    Forest Fire Digitata

    Project 365 - September 10th, 2016
    One of my favorite corals ever. I know, I know, it's just a digi but it's such a classic coral. I really like this top down, it helps to show the contrast from orange, green and the bone color of the base.

    I was hoping you'd get a close up shot of that one. It is gorgeous! Monti's are my favorites.

    World Wide Coral - Fire Breather

    Project 365 - September 11th, 2016
    I got the top down viewer back on the camera so I'm going to get some top down shots for a few days here. Today's post is of my WWC Fire Breather. This is a pretty stunning coral. I love the red accents with the yellow tips. It makes for a stunner. Medium light, medium flow is what this is getting in my tank. I think it could benefit from more flow but the light seems to be about right.

    Thanks for looking

    ORA Purple Plasma

    Project 365 - September 12th, 2016
    110 more to go! It's been a while since I've seen a number on there that made me think this is coming to an end. Only 110 more posts to make my Project 365 final. Here's to 110 more days.

    I mentioned yesterday that I'm going to focus on some top down shots, I feel that they can't be beat when photographing coral. Tonight's post is of my ORA Purple Plasma. I think the coral pretty much speaks for itself. I'm still amazed that this is not a more popular coral by ORA. Between the growth pattern and polyp extension its a hard one to beat. Medium light and high flow is where I have this one growing.

    Thanks for looking

    ORA Joe the Coral

    Project 365 - September 13th, 2016
    Tonight's post is of my ORA Joe the Coral. I've posted one other image of this coral several months back and got the back story on Joe the Coral. Basically, the coral was named after a guy who owned a LFS and did lots of business with ORA. Cool story and it's neat to think that there is actually a Joe out there. At any rate, I love the detail in the tips of this coral.

    He was a great LFS Clerk!!! Just got my hands on a nice chunk of this one from a generous local reefer. Love this piece.

    ORA Red Planet

    Project 365 - September 14th, 2016
    What can I say about Red Planet? For me this is one of those corals that makes you go out and buy a reef tank. The color contrast between the red and green is 2nd to none. I've found that lower light gets me extra green, if I mount a piece of this high in the tank, the green all but goes away.

    Thanks for looking
