Ok, y'all need to not show this to the cave bloke, I have this lined up for when he gets his little thing out again?! Shhhh! ;)

Ha! I may never win any of these "size matters" contests, but mine is still beautiful!

So fish show aggression toward fish that look the same, and humans show aggression toward humans that look different? Wonder if the mirror trick would work for us too?

Wow, I am imagining this powerful demonstration where everyone holds mirrors over their face. Brilliant.

It would have to be fun-house mirrors that would make everyone laugh. :)

Don't overlook damaged corals if you can get them cheap but try and judge how damaged it is and how did it happen?
Damaged not receding.
This favia was cuddled overnight by a pink long tentacle tube nem, the damage was all ridge flesh, as soon as I saw it I could see that all (*) the mouths were intact!
* There is one dead head but I think that was old!
6 - 8 months later! :)

I have that Blue Cespitularia lower right. It is amazing. Grows fast and mine is starting a new colony already

It is the best coral and looks super awesome sauce in the right flow. Sadly I somehow melted mine :( Once shipping and the world settles down I'll be picking up another frag from PAE for sure. Really miss that one.

Just got back from the LFS. No guarantees on their fish. No break for me.
Said I was doing everything right, spinal injury and probably beat up. :/
If the campus ever opens back up one of the first things I am doing is taking a water sample to the lab and making sure only good bacteria is floating around.

Sunday gravy is almost done.... started it yesterday. Made with San Marzano tomatoes--a must. Just finished kneading the pasta dough. Will roll out and cut for pappardelle pasta. Garlic bread and salad will round things out.

You are throwing me off with the gravy comment...is that a red / marinara sauce??? Looks yummy :D I have two that I make. The red with or without meat so we can use it with various dishes. I am going to try those tomatoes you noted this week. Also a very heavy four cheese with cream sauce that pairs very well with my favorite chardonnay.

Heck, maybe we need to get a cook book going :D
