Remember that POTO live sale?? My stuff came today!!! Paid $30 total got 4 pieces, free shipping, and this neat tshirt!
1st: FREE Hulk Torch!!! This is legitimately the greenest thing I’ve seen in my entire life. Pics with GSP for comparison C245138D-F9E7-4C66-AD25-6FED9000341D.jpeg 0BB2C845-D8E5-47F7-B3E7-C810161A40BF.jpeg 49887879-213C-4D7B-832B-75246258B86E.jpeg 3B6A12CE-9CE0-4EA5-9FF6-F7E25A694784.jpeg
2: FREE POTO Sunset Strip BTA!! I had no idea this guy was coming and I may or may not have cried just a little when I saw him in the box. This was really the only thing I wanted walking into the sale and POTO made it happen!! He’s really tiny, xenia for size. I thought he was a rock flower at first! 1A282442-2C55-4DFB-84F4-05200274339B.jpeg
3: FREE Yellow Clove! I’ll have to look up the name for these guys but they are gorgeous! CFEA7502-2116-4416-84E0-B82CECFCAC33.jpeg
4: $30 Fox Coral! It’s not open all the way yet but I can tell that this guy is gonna be a stunner! 0AE975DD-7A58-4252-8431-8B56208A5406.jpeg
5: FREE awesome tshirt!! It’s got this cool wrasse on the back so I wore it backwards to get the full effect in the photos 88FDAF99-3CE5-4017-89FB-D61D7517F962.jpeg D28DFC52-F6A5-4D4E-86B8-1DA0F0DF4F1A.jpeg
So a net worth of $685 in coral and I paid $30, plus free shipping and a free tshirt that’s not offered on the website. I am a VERY happy camper!

Alright guys! Couple newbies in the tank! 2 rehab patients! First is a nice Alveopora that’s got a big dead spot and less than stellar PE, I’m also suspecting that it’s at least somewhat bleached because it’s so white. FB0870A7-7C02-466B-9BF5-183A81C5318B.jpeg

Next guy is a orange hammer!! The head is really small and bleached but it’s sure to be a stunner! (My lights are very red to help the mangrove, so it looks pink but it’s actually pretty bleached) 8DBDF820-B961-41CC-A044-760FA0F5096F.jpeg 029B45FF-10CA-426B-BEA9-A916A2878B21.jpeg
Then my mangrove has got quite a bit of root now! Very excited to see this guy grow! 6896622B-88CE-4DE4-8D87-7D8DC7B493E6.jpeg

Well y’all, this tank has come a long way. Time for an update! Not many new corals this time, just very excited about how much my current ones have grown. It’s tough to be home for shipments now that I’m back in school, great for my wallet but all thee corals online are so gorgeous!

Got a new AI Prime HD (left) from Big Rick (thanks!) it’s so beautiful and it’s making the corals grow really nice.

Updated FTS :)

The bleached alveopora with a couple dead spots is recovering beautifully. Pretty good polyp extension on the top couple polyps, still needs some TLC but great improvement so far!

Here’s little Speck on the nem, he’s always hanging out here now! I wish my clowns would follow his example

One of my new additions, a purple tip gold cristata! My LFS (OceanLife) had a bunch of em for super cheap so I snatched one up. I think she’s prettier than my torches

My ‘orange’ hammer. It was bleached when it came to me and it’s got some faint color now. Guy swore up and down that she was “bright, tangerine orange” but she’s lookin more peachy to me right now. It doesn’t really matter to me, I love her however she decides to turn out :)

Here’s some acan love! I can’t believe how much these little guys have grown, especially my red ones. That rainbow still has a special place in my heart though!

ede7b1be-d3fa-45cb-95e8-e825eccacf1e-jpeg.jpg


Some zoa garden shots ft. the cherub angel. Some new frags, most just growing out really pretty. A lot of the new frags are in the 45 gallon, planning on updating that thread tomorrow! Maybe tonight if the lights are still on for pictures after I finish writing this.

My red planet has returned from the dead! Gorgeous coloration now, although we still have a ways to go to achieve it’s original 100% hot pink color. It’s looking fantastic, I wouldn’t mind at all if it just decided to stay this color forever I think it’s beautiful.

Of course, gotta update y’all on the torches! Both doing great, it’s kinda hard to tell where one starts and another one ends! They look really close together in this pic but if you scroll back up to the FTS, you can see that they are actually a few inches apart :)

d27c2d65-9c7f-4cea-9763-b243bdd41562-jpeg.jpg


That’s it for tonight y’all! Thank you for all your support and help with the creation of this tank. Id love some feedback on things, and if you have a coral suggestion that you feel like I’m lacking please comment! I am all about mixed reefs so I want to make sure this one is as mixed as I can get it :)

Really nice, love the colors, what settings are your lights on, can’t find the best ones yet on my hydra 26hd, and love the look and pop on your tank. Great setup.

Thanks! You prolly don’t need the red as high, I’m pretty sure they were on like 7% before. I just have the red because of the mangrove :) 03EF9556-3852-4D3D-BD74-8984DA6CAA1E.png

No ma’am, sunsets are in my other tank. They're from POTO, I ended up being too scared of BTA warfare to put it with my original nem. The nem in 99% of the pics is a RBTA with quite a bit of white speckling. No name, I got it from an LFS in San Antonio on a school trip :)

Well, a lot has changed since my last update! Here’s some new pics for y’all

New pic of that hammer garden y’all loved in the photo contest last month! Thinking about doing some rearranging cause there are 8 different hammers here although you can really only see 5 in the pic. 2FF81492-FD3B-47C2-8093-8AC1DFBA453F.jpeg

My torch has really colored up now! Suspecting a dragon soul instead of a hellfire, but I don’t really care about the name. It’s gorgeous and that’s all that matters to me, the gold is brilliant! 7C133AA8-0651-451B-9CD0-DE900C30DEFC.jpeg

Purple and green! A6ED1D5D-6D8E-4253-81C4-259B7A6EC34D.jpeg

Wondering what happened to that island rock? Abracadabra now it’s scolys! All my scolys in one pic minus one. I think I have a problem... 😂 E8289F15-EB01-4B44-8137-0353365EEA30.jpeg
And a spotlight on my Christmas present this year! thanks dad!@footguy 96DC54FD-67A4-49E6-9704-03B0CA93A90F.jpeg

A new Yuma from @butuz , lookin great so far! The colors and bubbles on this thing are almost unbelievable! AA5EEC0F-CE8D-43B0-8330-D6426F486184.jpeg

St. Thomas among the zoas E6EB4A90-3C7E-4485-AAA5-E6BCE882E96E.jpeg

I think I finally got the hang of my macro lens, here’s Heather! 298CAA98-F167-41F1-8A0F-5738B9CE85B6.jpeg

A new zoa, I think I’m gonna call them Eye of Cthulhu. The ones that look like Yoda aren’t mature, the color shift in the adult polyps is very dramatic A8E348E3-F03B-417A-9B14-A9CCE9C06BED.jpeg

Update on the mangroves: there’s more. Black mangroves! 1A653681-F2C6-484A-B717-FAA12482F768.jpeg 7C133AA8-0651-451B-9CD0-DE900C30DEFC.jpeg A6ED1D5D-6D8E-4253-81C4-259B7A6EC34D.jpeg E8289F15-EB01-4B44-8137-0353365EEA30.jpeg 96DC54FD-67A4-49E6-9704-03B0CA93A90F.jpeg AA5EEC0F-CE8D-43B0-8330-D6426F486184.jpeg E6EB4A90-3C7E-4485-AAA5-E6BCE882E96E.jpeg 298CAA98-F167-41F1-8A0F-5738B9CE85B6.jpeg A8E348E3-F03B-417A-9B14-A9CCE9C06BED.jpeg 1A653681-F2C6-484A-B717-FAA12482F768.jpeg A6ED1D5D-6D8E-4253-81C4-259B7A6EC34D.jpeg E8289F15-EB01-4B44-8137-0353365EEA30.jpeg 7C133AA8-0651-451B-9CD0-DE900C30DEFC.jpeg 96DC54FD-67A4-49E6-9704-03B0CA93A90F.jpeg AA5EEC0F-CE8D-43B0-8330-D6426F486184.jpeg E6EB4A90-3C7E-4485-AAA5-E6BCE882E96E.jpeg 298CAA98-F167-41F1-8A0F-5738B9CE85B6.jpeg A8E348E3-F03B-417A-9B14-A9CCE9C06BED.jpeg 1A653681-F2C6-484A-B717-FAA12482F768.jpeg

Too many attachments in the last post, so here’s the updated FTS! The only major change is the removal of the island rock from the back right corner which is now Scoly Land :)
