Unfortunately the pearl oyster shrimp hosted my gorgonian for a few weeks before disappearing =/

I'll be back in the U.S in a few days to do some more pictures for the thread !

Here are some new pictures as promised!

My new Sea Apple and his new pal!





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.





Some new cluster dusters





Red Cocoworm



Spiky Sea Cucumber

I hope your cool with the last pic being my new phone background :)

Dang if this beauty doesn't already have em you need to get basket and feather stars!!! I'm sure that since you can keep carnation coral and other "impossible" animals alive that you could handle fancy echinoderms like those. :p

I do have 3 Feather Starfish that are living in there, the "oldest" one is about 5 months old now.

I have been trying to get a small Basket Starfish but no luck sadly.

Had some time today so I decided to clean the tank a little bit and do some pictures!

Some new Cardinal (Apogon Parvulus)

I've been feeding them Reef Nutrition R.O.E 5-6 times a day and they've been fattening up and not dying!

I think a disease wipe out my last colony since they went from healthy to 0 in just a few days.


Side Shot



My Sea Apple is still going strong!



Recently found my Electric Scallop hiding in one of the cave (It's been in this tank for over 7 months!)



Got a new Caribbean Oyster since the last one passed away when I was gone




My new Carnation coral





My other Sea Apple



New Fish! Tigrigobius multifasciatus (Green Banded Goby)



This Sea Fan has been struggling since I got it, but it seem to have been stable for quite a while now

Is the seafan photosynthetic? I have one that looks like that but it's receding ): Tried feeding it rotifers but the polyps never comes out anymore ):

The only Photosynthetic one in my tank are the purple sea fan. The orange Sea Fan was doing good for about 4-5 months up until I went on vacation, it has been declining slowly due to lack of feeding while I was gone. I've been trying to bring it back but no luck so far, I'm hoping I can find another to find and hopefully it's a bit healthier than this one when it first came in.

The polyps does come out everyday for me, I usually feed Phytofeast first and let it entice everything in the tank to start opening up to feed. Then I dump more phytofeast along with Oyster Feast / Reef Roids / Rotifer and let the tank sit without the return pump for about 1 hour.
