    It’s finally that time! It’s not a build, it’s an upgrade.

    Now THAT'S an upgrade! Nice! Looking forward to seeing the progression of this

    Large Acro colonies FS

    Maybe when I get a chance to actually plant some frags! Surprisingly even after selling these colonies off, there doesn't seem to be that much additional room 🙄

    Someone break out their fluid dynamics text book! Let's see some equations here 😄

    The Maroon Lagoon V2.0

    Was going through my thread today and stumbled on a FTS from exactly 2 years ago. How things have changed!

    The Maroon Lagoon V2.0

    My squamy is still alive and kicking! Taking lots of photos while I can, you never know about clams and when they'll decide to kick the bucket! I know I'm probably sounding like a broken record, but man I LOVE these eviota gobies! They're so mobile and inquisitive. When I shut my pumps off, all my big fish hide, but these little guys come out and explore the tank. They're not afraid of anything! They swim up and watch what I'm doing, hardly budge when I move my hand in the water. Hard to capture the blue of my blue matrix, but it is stunning! Darker blue than my Oregon Tort IMHO. Vivid Confetti growth has slowed down, seems like it has reached its borders with other corals and is just thickening up now. In the process of clearing more growth space for it...

    Large Acro colonies FS

    I need to clear some space in my tank, so I'm removing some of my colonies to make room for some recently acquired frags. Would like to have these gone by the end of the weekend. Blue tenuis colony $70 UC Bali Shortcake colony $100 Red planet chunk $45

    Micro brittle stars

    haha I have tons of them in my tank! Buy a frag, get some micro stars for free! 😄
  12. Assuming you can maintain those great Aussie colors! I feel like ULNSs make great Aussie tanks, keeps them that beautiful pale pastel color that the wilds usually come in with.
  13. +1 on the removal from he concrete plug and dipping it. There are so many nooks and crannies in those plugs and spots where critters can hide, it's not worth the risk. Some of my maris have been absolutely gorgeous and some have not retained their colors. For the most part I view maris as being nicer than just wild corals. The thing about maris is that the farmer is usually finding the nicest coral available and propagating it in the wild, so you're rarely getting some ugly brown coral. Like you said Ty, it's a great way to get good color in your tank quickly. Is it he best color? No, not usually. The named corals that go for a pretty penny are those that have gone through more rounds of selection based on coloration and therefore demand a higher price. I agree that maris do best under higher light. Usually they look dull and ugly under lower light conditions. Most of the Milles I've gotten don't retain those amazing colors from the store. I've only had one mille that looked amazing, turned bland, and has begun to get those amazing colors back half a year later.

    Add a JF Solar Flare to my collection today. This thing is INSANE orange! Here it is next to my RCA The Hotness mille. Here's an update picture of my RR Firecracker, also looking amazing
