Once their stuck down and happy again, they'll be up for trade! I'll try to take a pic of one of the neighbor heads so you van see them. Basically, they're the color non-reefers call coral...that PNMWAS/orange/flesh type color.

i got hooked up with a little leopard wrasse and man is hey gorgeous.and he is also a natural flatworm remedy.he is already picking at the rocks and making my tank an allround brighter place.he is kinda eratic so to speak.he will be out on display then suddenly dart to cover like he saw a ghost.i suppose most wrasses are a wee bit similar in nature.

if your meaning in this instance of godlike is a coral that destroys everything around it and looks innocent doing it.a big glowing brain that releases masses of stinging tentacles that just destroy things that touch them.you see the empty space around it.thats for others saftey.gotta keep this one down flow.your on this list for a frag when i decide to desicrate it.

so i have also been thinking about introducing a smaller clownfish to this system to pair off with the perula that is already in there.i dont really remember why there is a percula in there in the first place but she looks like she could use some companionship and the surviving clown that is in my copper system has toughed it out long enough so its tank graduation day for the little guy.i also have had a bristle tooth tang that i have had in QT for almost a year so i am also letting him hitch a ride into the nano reef.hopefully things will stay peacfull.

so i am in the thought process and partial preperation of taking this bad boy down.not that things arent good they arent great and the stand its on is not stable.it wobble way to much if touched even for a cleaning of the front glass.it is far from kid proof or the half drunk person who puts there hand on the aquarium to balance like its furniture.so i kinda have to build a new stand and it wont be the simple drain and fill move.

here it is just as i found it a little dingy as it needs a water change and algae scraping but i am unsure when i am going to get the motivation to just do it so i thought i would snap a pic now.

the back wall is covered in yellow polyps and sinularia so as its dry docked fo longer than expected as always it is being condtantly sprayed down by tank water so things should be OK.i made sure to have a extra set of hands to man the spray bottle. [img][/img]
i had the redskull over to help with the heavy liftingand all the other fun jobs.THANKS SKULL. Laughing
[img][/img]
so many buckets i actualy had to leave a bunch outside on the porch since the living room filled up and i had lights and stands and other equipment everywhere.i actualy ran out of buckets as i had to keep the coral seperated.

poor sarco. Crying or Very sad i also started to run out of salt water as you gotta keep ecvery coral covered rock submerged.not to mention selected buckets had to be heated for more sensitive life such as my teardrop clam.[img][/img]
and the redskull found a pistol shrimp i thought i had lost in the sump.he is huge and old as i put him in several years ago.maybe 3.
