For my dad's 60th Birthday, I picked up a Coppperband Butterfly for him.

He always wanted one after the Achilles killed the last one he had. However, I will be keeping the butterfly temporarily to get him nice and plump since there is no food competition in my tank. This time, the copper band is going into the 180g with the big boys (Yellow Eye Kole, Powder Blue, Blonde Naso)

Looks pretty good in the lagoon, might have to grab one for myself!

Taken at 2:30am so caught him off guard wondering around the tank!

Mangroves are doing amazing!

Time to rehome some just because they are starting to take off and I dont have enough space in the back to properly enjoy them. Salinity in my tank is always changing since I kinda just leave everything on autopilot ranging from 31-37.

Wish I could just place them in the display so they can grow crazy with the roots... However I can't deal with that evaporation so the back chamber will have to do.

If you dont already follow me on Instagram, ya missing out on the content! @Salty_Taste650

Told myself long ago that I would create more content and post to Youtube taking you along my journey...
It is so much work... maybe I am a perfectionist and want to make it a certain way but not to best when it comes to content creation. Anyways, Enjoy these straight out the camera shots :)

LINEAGED POLETTI PURPLE MONSTER JAWBREAKER

This is a grail pickup of mine. Actually all of my corals are grail pickups but I got way too excited and had to document this right away. Couldn't even let the mushrooms settle but here's a little snippet. Can't wait for the momma to start going crazy and for the "babies" to pull purple.

Officially a proud owner of a PURPLE MONSTER JAWBREAKER. Did I mention this is lineage back to Mark Poletti!

*Tank Updates*

- Moved the Copperband into the 180g (split the tank in half with divider)
- White Tail Kole is approaching 3 weeks in the Observation tank
- After 3 months of curing, Tonga branch and Fiji rocks are finally at an acceptable Nitrate + Phosphate levels.

The million dollar question is do I change up the whole aqua scape when tank is really thriving?

{Been Toying with the idea of rehoming my Breeding Pair of True Percs}
Why? Because I want some Super Black True Percs..... Decisions Decisions.

Now that's just lovely, well done! Softies are highly underrated in my opinion. :star-struck:
