And my favorite the space monsters!!! I'm so glad no one bought these when I had them for sale!!!

When I got them a month back they were all small, about the size of tubs blue zoas. It was 4 that size and you could see a bump where the 5th was beginning to grow.

Now... a month later





Six nice sized polyps, and when I picked them up to make them close... There are two more polys growing out, possibly three bouncy

Corals look good! They'll look even better when you finally put them in the new aquarium! Very Happy

New aquascaping looks great! Nice and spacious!

I'm thinking a few candy basslets ought to look real nice in there!

Thanks for noticing the aquascaping! I'm going to put the rock with zoas in across the top once the tank cycles.

Yes those would look pretty good, but whats looking better to me (and my wallet :p) is a wartskin angler, and a marinebetta? Both odd, eat fish, but wont eat me, or poison me.

Do you think they'd go fine?

I'm all for the angler, I think they're awesome! However, I find marine bettas a little boring, but I don't know much about them. Convince me! Wink

Grow to a ncie size of 8 inches, move around a fair bit, not super fast paced like a wrasse. They look very good though IMO

Bad quality but you get the idea.

the angler that I'm looking at stays under 5inches, and the betta grows to 8.

Do you have a replacement suggestion by chance?
