Finally some pictures!! Sorry for taking such a long time between updates. The tank has been doing really good and growing out very fast, one of my favorite thing about this tank is the strange inverts I've been able to keep. There's always something new to see in there!

I've acquired an Emperor Shrimp recently and it has taken to hosting my Sea Apple! I try to feed this little guy every day with a piece of squid / shrimp.



Another new addition is two Feather Starfish. They've been doing pretty well so far and always come out to feed whenever I put in Reef Roid or Reef Nutrition.





Some little Sea Cucumber, my goal is to have this cliff fill with them!

Got around to doing a FTS and some picture of the new Gorgs =)

I really hope the indo ban will go away soon so that I will be able to source some wire gorgs / unique NPS in, along with more algae!

Everything is still good with the tank with the exception of a few Sexy shrimps disappearing and some Algae keep floating away after 1-2 weeks. I will be trying to use fishing line to attach the algae to frags instead of glue and see how that work.

Sadly the Nemastoma keep cutting itself from the frag plug and get chopped up in the Nero 5.

I still have a good 4-5 decent size frag growing (now with fishing line to attach to the frag plugs). They're holding on to the frag plugs so far!

Had some time to clean the tank a bit and do some pictures!

This is a very special little zoa I got growing out!



My Thorny Oyster still doing great! Hopefully I can find 1 more to add to the tank. This one usually open extremely wide to feed when I dose Phytoplankton.



Some other Filter Feeders in the tank







My Crinoid has been moving around quite a bit, seem very happy along with his little hitchhiker!

Wow...I could never get my algae plants to grow like this. They eventually all withered away and died, including my favorite, the
Dragon's Breathe. It was hard to keep the plant mounted to plugs or rock. Thinking of giving it a go again. What do you dose to get this kind of growth?

I dont dose anything except just feed all the NPS, algae takes off like crazy!

yes yes and YES!!! X100000
macro tanks are so under rated IMHO I had a 20L macro with a verity of macos but lost it do to some kind of red cotton candy algae outbreak. at 1st i was wow look at this new fuzzy red macro that just showed up then after a few months it took over like a weed. tried as I might I could not get it under control.

love this tank. I have really been thinking of setting up another. this might have just pushed me over the edge.
was think of a FW planted or a macro seahorse tank...hmm so many tanks so little $$ and time .

keep up the good work and the updated coming!!
