PC Rainbow. Only had this guy for less than a month but the color is already popping! Another fast grower in my tank.

I think this one is called "Bonsai". Normal growth rate and kept its color pretty well. I really

Red Dragon. Got it together with the Fox Flame. Also a fast grower. It's at the top of the tank and I may move it down a little bit seeing how thing the branches are.

Next is an interesting one. i thought I lost this guy for sure but it bounced back. It has been in my tank for over six months and was one of the very first batch of sticks I put in my tank. Most of them died in the crash and this one lost most of its tissue as well. However there has always been a little part of the stick that never grew algae so I kept it in my tank to see what would happen. To my surprise it started growing tissue again from the base. Although the color is still pale, I am hopefully it will eventually recover after getting back to full health. It's going to be interesting to see what color it shows.

This is a CB Mad Raver. About three months old and growth has been decent. Really like the color of this guy.

I had a really hard time focusing on the next two so I am just going to put them together. One is Tropical Paradise and the other is Orange Passion. Both are slow growers and it's really hard to tell if they have grown or not in the past three months.

Maleficent is another fast grower! I like how the red color deepens as you stare at it. I feel it changes color in front of my eyes!

Everything is looking great!
How do you like the overflows? Are they pretty quiet? I've been considering ordering a tank from them.

The overflow works but because the opening is facing up it tends to grow algae quite easily. If I could do it again I would definitely order the tank from them but get a low profile overflow like the ghost or shadow overflow style.
The tank it self is perfect and I would definitely recommend Custom Aquarium.

Thinking out loud.

Sounds like some custom shade covers for the overflows are in order to stop algae growth.;)

I have a question to those who have big fishes in their tanks: do your fishes break SPS often? My tank is still pretty new and my fish seem to find way to break whatever vertical growth there is...

I have suffered more frags and plugs being knocked over than sticks getting broken. It has made me invest in a couple packages of reef putty. . .LOL.
No one wants any of their sps broken but on the other hand, it allows you an opportunity to have a second piece or frag you can sell or trade to acquire something different on your wish list.
