Ordered my new AI 52 Fifty-two lights today! Two of them for this tank along with an AI controller for the Apex. I also bought an Apex AFS for feeding the reef tank pelleted food. Should be lots of automation fun!

Can't find my sebae...the clownfish annoyed it so much that it shriveled up and disappeared into my rockwork.

We noticed that the small plug of lps mystery zoas I bought from Reef Wonderland *exploded* with growth and have actually already covered the plug and are moving onto the rocks!

Merry Christmas to me! It appears that my bubble tip anemone got hungry - it ate my cleaner shrimp... We caught it in the act but it was already too late :-(

Lost a sally lightfoot, but the other one is still doing well. I moved my clover polyp to the middle height of the tank, it seems to be doing a bit better. I still think I will need to change my vortech programming - if it kills the poco so be it, but I think I have too much flow in this tank for the LPS. I'm not going to kill all the other corals just to help my one SPS.

I moved the clover polyp to the other side of the tank, hopefully I can keep it from being eaten too badly :-(

Our one spot foxface has decided to start eating my clover polyp coral :-(

Our new Wrasse sure settled in quickly. Sadly he's being bullied by our female Ocelaris. If I had knew just how aggressive clownfish were I would never have put them in my tank. Saw one creepy thing today...one of the Sally Lightfoot crabs appeared to be being eaten by a brittle star today. I forced the star off just to check, and it was just a shell moult. The crazy part was that the brittle star is eating the exoskeleton directly. I had no idea they could eat things like that! It's probaby a great calcium source...

Our pink cucumber is doing well so far...we have a bunch of the small yellow ones in this tank but we only see them every few months...the rest of the time they sit in the rockwork.

Wow, the bubble tip ejected a huge poop and is now back at his normal size...

Bubble tip anemone shrunk to about 1/8 his normal size today. His tentacles look like hairs they are so thin. I'm guessing that it's trying to poop. Clowns irritated the Seabae so much he tried to float somewhere better and ended up in a null area tentacles down. I flipped him back up, hopefully they will let him attach before they harass him more.
