An acan update:

Here are two pics of the acans from Mr. Coral. They seem to be doing quite well now! Smile

Just so you know, none of my acans or favias from MC are eating when I feed. But on the other hand my Paly and Blasto are eating like champs!!!

My acans are putting out some short tentacles, but my fish and shrimp steal all of the food from them, so it's kind of useless. Glad your palys and blasto are eating for you.

Yeah I'm glad they're eating for me. Try some cyclops you can find some in your house freezer on the second shelf up. Or the defrosted cup in the fridge. They're so small you might be able to distract the shrimp!

Thanks for the directions. Rolling Eyes I might give that a try, but you'd be surprised how greedy and quick my fish and shrimp are...

Yeah I know, I'm scared to put my hand in there... I'm afraid they might eat me alive!! don\'t know . My suggestion would be to spray half a dropper full on the opposite side that your going to feed, wait five and then spot feed on the far side. good luck

So it's time for an update! Cool

First off, I picked up two new corals over the 4th of July Weekend from Creative Aquariums...

Purple and Green Stylophora:



Second, I acquired a gorgeous green and purple hammer coral from Nicholas. It had become too large for his 6 gallon and was stinging his other corals, so we made a swap...




Most recently, I got a BUNCH of new corals from Eric (aka Mangoman). I'm happy to say that all of the corals look nice and happy in their new home! Very Happy

Orange-Green Mushrooms:


Green Yumas:


Green Mushroom:


Zoas and Clove Polyps:


More Zoas:


Ring of Fire Zoas:


Green Palys:


Cinnamon Paly:


Green Birdsnest (the one on the left might not pull through, but it's looking a bit better since I took this picture):


Thanks again, Eric! cheers

It's actually doing okay. The body of the coral has remained that same beige color, but there are lime green polyps that now extend. The polyps are very tiny. The frag doesn't resemble the other two birdsnests that I have. I'd try to get a pic of it, but it's nearly impossible to get a pic of it because I have it placed at the back of my aquarium and my camera can't get a pic that isn't blurry. Neutral

Nope Sad

the only frag I had left of it died. The mother colony (well the base of what was the mother colony) turned a white color for a few weeks but kept the lime green polyps. The polyps were pretty impressive!

Well, I've got some bad news. I haven't seen Waldo (my little tail spot blenny) for three days. I'd like to believe he's still alive. But, let's face it. I loved the little guy, and miss him. cry

Unfortunately, he's gone. Sad I don't know why the little guy died. I think maybe he got sick, but it might just have been old age...
