    I may be going against the grain but I slightly prefer the black back. My thought is it provided great contrast which showed more definition and also seemed to provide more "pop". I will say, however, that either way the tank still looks amazing! At the end of the day, all that really matters is what you like.

    My Carnation Corals are still going strong! I think it has shrunk a little bit in the last month but it still opens up and feed everyday.

    Sorry for the lack of updates! I've been busy with works and vacation to get away from this scorching heat!

    I had my sister feed the tank for 2 weeks straight with no water change and when I came back... The algae had truly taken over the tank! I tested phosphate and it was still only 0.15, nitrate was still undetectable.

    The only loss while I was gone was my emperor shrimp and my Caribbean Thorny Oyster.

    FTS from today! I will need to do a trim soon

    [​IMG]

    I purchased a Red Feather Starfish but didn't realized it would be a monster like this

    [​IMG]

    The other Feather dusters are still doing good!

    [​IMG]

    Most of my Sea Cucumber seem to like this spot and gathered here

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Overgrown Algae

    [​IMG]

    Most of my Feather duster are still going strong

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Carnation Coral still holding on! It's not puffed out for this picture

    [​IMG]

    My favorite Algae (Nemastoma) also exploded in growth while I was gone

    [​IMG]

    I will try to get more pictures throughout the weekend here after I clean the tank up a bit!
