    I took a picture of this one in the bag the other night - Now it's settled in nicely.

    And of course, this is one of my favorite corals ever - Space Invader Pectinia

    I only have 9 fish and generally don't take any pictures of them at all but here's a few from today

    I'm not very good at photographing fish but if I don't keep trying, I'll never get better

    Tenneti Tang (aka Vampire or Lieutenant Tang) - Fun fact: that's not a small fish, it's a HUGE mushroom.

    Always wanted a mystery. Does he devour any of your inverts?

    The mystery doesn't bother anything I care about or notice. Probably attacks snails when I'm not paying attention, but otherwise he's not a monster that kills cleaner shrimp or emerald crabs. They get a bad rep for good reason though. Lots of them are jerks (especially in smaller tanks) with fish they can bully. I have 2 leopards and a mystery wrasse.. I'm fond of wrasse and ok with their predator behavior more so than others might be if they enjoy all the cool little inverts the sea has to offer.

    Nice blastos. Mine haven't done much in months. I need a few more color morphs.

    WOW,
    Totally cool tank, amazing collection of corals! I have a slight addiction to shrooms as of late myself :) Nothing near what you have there, those eclectus and bounces are SWEET!

    I picked up a new toxic green bounce today. I’ll have to shoot some pics when it’s happy and settled in.

    LOL,
    I scored a red devil recently, and also a blueberry bounce. Have eyes on an interstellar, Aussie Flamethrower, and Eclectus, just have to save a few bucks ;)

    I have a couple pretty good size Red Devils. They’re fairly dull in coloration compared to many other mushrooms and not worth the price I’ve seen them offered for. There’s a reason I haven’t photographed them - they’re bland looking. I then have that one baby I posted that came off a red devil plug but looks nothing like a regular red devil so I’m not sure what it is but it’s crazy cool. It might be a baby or maybe it was something else growing there.
    I’ll eventually get rid of all the red devils I have but other folks seems to love them so maybe I’m just crazy

    That's what I was thinking about them so it's nice to know from a shroom head that they're kind of "meh" lol I'll focus on the rest of my list and not add them lol I can't wait to see how that little baby goes though! Looks gorgeous

    Where do you all get your acans and shrooms from?
