I love it too! It's a great favia and has great color under day and night lights. The flame angel is doing great in the tank.

AND I HAVE GREAT NEWS!
---I was looking at my tank with my little cousin about a week back with just the actinic lights on and that's when I noticed something sitting above the sand. It was my two polyps of darth maul. So I snatched it up, and glued them down. Turns out Azula the flame angel isn't a serial killer!

Your tank looks amazing! I love the magnet supported corals, hahaha. That's such a neat idea.
Glad to hear the Flame angel is working out too! They're gorgeous Smile

Thanks Ashley! The acros should encrust the base where you see the epoxy, and overtime they should table out and upwards Very Happy.

I'm just happy that the flame angel isn't eating any coral Smile

I think #5 is something else though.. here's a pic of miami hurricane: http://www.google.com/imgres?q=miami+hurricane+chalice&hl=en&sa=X&rlz=1T4GGLL_enUS313US313&biw=1024&bih=565&tbm=isch&prmd=imvns&tbnid=i9eCGBgHqqq6YM:&imgrefurl=http://blueplanetcorals.com/index.php%3Fmain_page%3Dproduct_info%26cPath%3D13%26products_id%3D198&docid=CFuQk7_bDTgrKM&imgurl=http://blueplanetcorals.com/images/miami-hurricane-mini-colony.gif&w=843&h=734&ei=PLYeT6qMIsPbtweKpt1J&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=77&vpy=129&dur=47&hovh=209&hovw=241&tx=143&ty=119&sig=114063599445692684460&page=1&tbnh=112&tbnw=119&start=0&ndsp=18&ved=1t:429,r:0,s:0

Thanks eric! Number 5 is misleading, but the eyes are small. From what I could tell from the colony it was fragged from the small eyes are yellow-green, and develop the orange as they grow.

and 7 is watermelon

Thanks... No idea. I came home around noon and turned my lights on and noticed the mystery wrasse lying on the sand. Then after freaking out and running for the test kit it hit me that I hadn't seen the flame angel. I guess the nassarius' were having a snack on her first. Which was confirmed when I went to go eat and they brought what was left of her to the surface...

The nitrates and nitrites were a bit the wrong color, but still closer to the first color than the second. So I changed 8 gallons...

Thanks Dan... After the water change the maroon clowns were breathing and swimming just fine. Hopefully they will be okay.

Hmmmm.... that's really unusual.. not saying it doens't happen but its unusual.. did you see any fungal infection that may have come in one one of them?

I hate it when you don't know why they died Sad

Sorry bout that bro!

Yeah, that's weird that nothing seemed wrong, and they just dropped dead out of the blue. Your nitrites and nitrates could be off because of the fish decay; however, if the nitrites were above 0 ppm before the fish died, that may be your issue... Neutral

No they both seemed fine. The flame angel was showing a bit of ich when I got her, but after a day and her getting used to the tank + the UV sterilizer being on it went away. I'll have to keep an eye on them for the next few days for the clowns

Everything seems fine and happy. I was out of town this weekend, but nothing out of the normal happened. The clowns and coral look happy as can be.
