Where's your big nem Holly?

I am sorry to say that after having the privilege of displaying that anemone for more than 3 years, it has crossed the rainbow bridge. One of the heartbreaks at this hobby is losing animals without a discernible reason. My clownfish and anemone crab have now found a new home with this beautiful yellow anemone from Cuttle Fish. I reworked the aquascaping in the area and made an SPS garden--right next to the anemone. I like to live dangerously.

 

RIP Big Blue

Awwww, I'm sorry to hear that.  :shock::nooo::cryingfit:

You're right that life in the reef is fleeting.  It's still a huge bummer when a cherished piece goes suddenly.  I just lost my green and orange scoly I've had for several years. 

As I tell outsiders when talking about reefing, it's a grim hobby.

Sorry to hear about the nem Holly @Gil&Fin that is very sad. I l knew he wasn’t doing great last time I was out there but was hoping he would bounce back. RIP big blue indeed. He was awesome.

Lights are off, so here are a couple from last month featuring the rare and uncollectible yellow tang!

Major stalker, all the other fish go about their business.  The Naso locks eyes with me any time I look over there.  Truly a notch up on the IQ scale from the other fishes at least when it comes to food.  Makes getting pics very tough!

Really nice!  Why does that wrasse in the last picture look like he got a grainy filter ran over him a few times?  Is that the giant Naso you got at C&C at the meeting there last year?
