nice i love before and after pics.thats some nice cabbage.i have a frag but for some reason its not the fastest grower.i dig the macro of the anthelia polyps.i might need to grab some of those at some point. Laughing

my cabbage doesn't seem to grow much either, so don't feel too bad...I'm actually getting a little bored with it (and most of my softies)...I'd be happy to cut a couple heads of anthilia if you want to do a trade...any LPS?

not sure what I actually would want in trade...zoas could work if they're ones I don't have. I've got a frag of your green bay packers and a 3" rock covered in a couple varieties (candy apple reds are one of them, not sure of others). I would definitely be interested in a schnazzy zoa or two. or a little head of euphylia, I think xenia would just go in my sump as a nitrate sink...kind of an experiment I am considering since I'm not super excited about how fast it can take over a tank.

traded out the rock with most of my cabbage and the one with most of my mushrooms to a noob in lebanon (got two 750gph koralias!), I've got a few of the mushrooms that are still doing well, some gsp spattered about the tank, one big head of cabbage. sea-foam palys are quickly becoming a carpet on one of my favorite rocks Sad red palys are doing well except I think a couple NPS sponges are pissing them off a bit, it's ok, I'm not that attached to them. really hoping the new tank with be hard corals, some cool looking zoas and a clam or two, so I'm just kind of letting my current stuff do it's thing.

fighting a leak right now, the out of my return pump is connected to a barb fitting to 3/4" flex pipe and that barb fitting won't get tight enough...still working on that. but I got rock out of the tub and into the sump to get that water moving forward!

it's a barbed fitting that's leaking...I tightened down the clamp as tight as it'll go and it still leaks...I guess I need a different solution. I cut a few frags yesterday that are healing now, so I've got some fuzzy red mushroom, some of badX's sarcophyton, a red paly, and a couple anthilia. got a guy coming over at some point who gets two of the above (I have two of each type except the paly cut right now), the rest are available for trade. sea foam paly's are easy to cut and grow like weeds, a pic of someone else's is below (hijacked from PNWMAS)
