Also managed to get the last 2 berghia they had. They’re microscopic but alive. Just acclimating them and then I guess I’ll use the turkey baster to get them in the tank? I dunno

Also grabbed some Reef Nutrition Apex pods and some new phyto feast.

When I was at Candy Corals picking up the tank I noticed he had a pair of Blue Star Leopards that looked incredibly healthy. Fat and not a blemish on either of them. Unfortunately since my tank is still in the box picking them up wasn’t an option LOL.
We did discuss my fish list though and he said he can get any fish I want within a couple of weeks and will keep them quarantined until I’m satisfied with them. Pretty dang cool I thought.

I've never heard of or seen one of these before. Griessingeri Goby. Grows to 2". How cool is this little guy?

I’m beginning to realise that AI Primes just don’t have enough juice for the new tank. I think they’re perfect for an LPS tank but not Acropora. *sigh*.
@James_O you may be right about the Radions, dang. ;)
Lighting budget just went up considerably. ;Facepalm

i can’t wait to see this new setup ! And I agree radions would be perfect for this new tank !
Thanks brother, not you too?!? Ha!
ya, if I can get 2 of the xr15s in a hybrid t5 fixture that would be perfect. Without the t5s I think I’d need 3 of the radions. Ouchy

just heard from the boss man at CC. He’s offered me a very nice discount on 3 Radion xr15s. guess there’s no turning back now. Lol
Going to put them in a Giesseman or AquaticLife 4 bulb T5 fixture, so 2 T5s on front and back and the radions down the middle.

Cry once right? ;)

edit. Why am I quoting my own post?

Howdy folks. Haven't really had anything to report lately so I didn't bore you with my random thoughts etc lol

Tank is pretty good. Bubblegum Digi has made an almost complete comeback, only difference now is the main body is a darker red than it used to be. I dunno

Only issue at the moment is Aiptasia and it's getting kinda bad. Took a few rocks and corals out yesterday and blasted the aips with lemon juice and AiptasiaX. Think I'm going to have to blast a few of them every day until it's under control.

No news on the new tank as I decided to paint the room it's going in so will have to wait until that's done. That's one way to get motivated to paint...which I hate doing. ha!

Ya I'd never even seen one before and it went straight to the top (ish) of my ever-expanding Acro list. It's on for $160 which is spendy but........

The Red Riding Hood is doing fine, it just ain't doing much of anything. Encrusted over the frag plug now and probably gained a mm or 2 in height but basically it looks just the same. It hasn't moved from the frag rack so not exactly in its happy place yet. The colour is still pretty awesome though.. I'll get another pic soon.

I don't know if you've noticed but all the "high end" Acros at CC look like they come from the same supplier. Exactly the same frag plug with that perfect blob of white epoxy. Ha! Going to ask Afnan next time I'm in, but that might be on a need-to-know basis. ;)

never noticed until now that you mentioned it. I always thought these were just frags of his own colonies
