    Gorgeous! Looks like you're about ready for a BIG tank upgrade:) If you can do that with a small tank, you'd have an amazing big one!

    Usually shoot everything top down, but I did some cleaning and sometimes you can only get these colors through the glass

    About three months since the last update. Lots of top downs of the same colonies I took side shots of last time.

    Such an awesome tank!! I'm gonna have to make it to the bay area, and check in with a couple of you Bay Area reefers!
    Just finally getting my 120 restarted, after watching your tank for years… I know you've got quite the collection!!

    5 ATI Blue+, 1 ATI Coral +, 2 Blue reefbrite strips

    I moved the tank about a year and a half ago. Instead of cleaning up the sand and putting it back in I decided to go bare bottom. I had the tank made with a black bottom so it worked out well. I used to be covered in coraline, but I picked up an urchin about 6 months back and he has taken care of that for me.

    Swing by anytime. I love showing off the little piece of the reef I've got going on.

    I bought it from Cornbred as Blue Crush. No colors so far though.
