Show me your deep water pieces!

Recommended Posts

I am slowly transitioning my tank away from its original focus of only OG corals to one that is more deep water and smooth skin dominated, luckily for me there are several classics that fall into that category, so I can sort of two for one there.

 

So far I have picked up the following (that are still alive) and the bug just keeps biting: hawkins, retina blaster, icefire, hellboy, 40k lokani, wwc blue monster, bc ruby tipped granny, red gecko, and a turquoise caroliniana.

 

I am seeking inspiration from some local tanks (especially if anyone wants to help feed my addiction).

 

Here is the caroliniana and the hellboy to get it started.

Nice choices. I miss my Hawkins and Bannana Lokani- got them from Holly but she doesn’t have them anymore 😢

Always loved the deepwater acros but have never been able to keep them with any long term success. Watching this thread might inspire me to give them another try.

I just started another thread about Skittles granulosa and other smoothies, but here's my favorite right now.  Glad to see someone else enjoying these instead of tenuis nowadays ;)

And here's a little no namer getting really interesting polyps, starting out blue/purple and suddenly transitioning to red/orange as they age.  Pardon the photosynthetic flatworms, haha!

I am itching for some Indo deep water to start rolling in!

Yeah I've heard rumors but so far haven't seen anything available yet.  I'm more interested in the stuff that is still in peoples' tanks that actually acclimated to captivity and survived :)
