PostSubject: MVP edition   Sun Feb 05, 2012 12:19 pm

Well it has been a while since I added an update on my tank. Last week i made a nice big order from MVP and got lots of very nice coral frags and a super sweet T5 light that I needed for the front of the tank for dawn/dusk lighting. The pictures below dont show all of the frags and they arent the best quality but you'll get the idea... I am really happy with the way this tank is turning out. Only 3 months old, started from scratch but i've ben very careful along the way to try and keep everything even and steady. The tank could use a lot of maturation but that will come in time, especially since I used sterile rock to start (but I have a lot and there are LOTS of smaller rocks in there so I have a lot of surface area which is key)... Anyway, without further ado...

thanks badx... according to mike that's a montipora danae. I used to know a danae... anyway... it is cool because it is like 4x as thick as the other monitis i know so its a lot less fragile. plus it just looks cool. Everything is doing so well in the 75 so I am really happy. All the coral are out, happy, feeding, fat. The fish are out, happy, feeding and super fat (my yellow coris wrasse has a pudgy belly- he's also developing really cool opaque/white markings on his face and his gills are starting to look like eyes... i dunno if that is normal or what! Smile )...
