Nice! It's going to have so much color and diversity when it grows out.

That's what I'm hoping! That's why I'm trying to plan placement a little bit and getting as many different kinds now so they can all grow in together.

 

Well that's what I tell myself anyone. Really I'm just an addict lol!????

Spent some time on the tank this weekend and was able to move some frags around. Here is an updated shot. Beth chiseled me off a piece of that big beautiful yuma rock from Isaac! Thanks Beth for chiseling off a nice piece for me!

 

Also got some more nice zoas from MattV.  Matt's zoas always do great for me they open right up!

 

Got a cool showpiece of a plate from Cuttlefish today!

 

And finally found spots from all the zoas I got from Mr. Bret and Softy!

 

Karen your sympodium is doing well too! Robert the Magicians are looking great just not growing yet. Thanks again for all the tank warming gifts! You're so generous!

 

I'm loving my little 20 but really not much room for much more. Maybe a few acans and I was eyeing a nice goniopora that Jeff just got in! Save me a piece of that Jeff.

Looks good but I see a lot of bare spots still :D you can fit more.....

Ha ha Scott! I know it's been a while since you set up a tank BUT you do realize this stuff actually grows????? there is some room on the bed for some acans and chalices. I still have to get some from Bret that I had him hold for me.

As promised I am posting some updates. I got my final fish at CuttlefishandCorals last week. A gold dwarf moray eel and I love him! His name is Rex.

I was watching to my horror the next day as he got really close to the vortech   :wacko:. I had images of dwarf gold moray eel frags and pretty sure none of you would have bought them!  :ohmy: and as I rushed to the tank he quickly went through the overflow.  :doh: 

 

Had to pull out the mediabaskets and there he was hanging out... :dejection:  There was no way I was going to be able to net him so as I pondered how the heck I was going to get him out of there, Rex helped me out and just went back into the main tank himself!  :clap: 

 

I happened to have the DIY kit readily available. This is why I sometimes keep things that I don't use right away! And put mesh on the vortech, overflow and made a new cover that does not have the gaps in it like the stock lid. It also looks better than the stock lid because it does not have the white in it.

And here is Rex next to the large zoas. In a small tank he is easy to find!  :thumbs:

Here's a full tank shot. I also added a few frags from Bret and Softy  Jason fox JackO'lantern , Incredible hulk, and bubblegum monster chalice

I also added 2 sps Red planet from Mandinga and Oregon blue tort

Jeff actually had him at his shop for a month he just hid so well that customers didn't know he was there. It was slow for them last Friday for a change so i was able to hang out for a while while they were feeding the fish and Jeff was talking about it. I wasn't going to get him because I was afraid he would crawl out of the tank but Jeff gave me a deal on him because he had been in the shop so long!
