Nice.

A great many threats face reef environments.  An informed marine aquarist can be part of the solution, not a contributor to the problem.

The big one is stuck on its own, it's about two years in my tank, it's been down low, in the middle and now up high, the little one is also stuck on its own about 6 months in the tank,there pretty hardy! Lol I pour hydrogen peroxide in them, once a month!

Yes, both clams stuck on there own to the rock, I have a bad case of bryrops algae, and the peroxide kills it and does no harm to the corals or clams

Hard to believe that was covered in algae like it was. Awesome euphyllia, love large LPS pieces.

Thanks. Matt, I just squirted the peroxide about 5 times on the algae , changed the ro/ di filters , got the make up water back down to 2 tds or less . I did lose a few corals mostly to tumbling of rocks and few fish due to me adopting a nasty clown fish. But  I learned theses corals really like me adding reef buffer every other day, I lost my esopps skimmer and had to go back to the sea clone.thanks Doug . Anybody want to cut up a 14" Aussie elegance ? I like the little one next to the big one,its an Aussie and doubles every time I target feed it

I could get in on some Aussie elegance action.  Let me know what your plans are for it and how I can help.

Tony I cut one awhile back. I just cut the flesh with a razor down to the skeleton, then cut clean through that line with a diamond dremel wheel. Took a bit to heal up, but handled it just fine. I did smell something awful after though. If you have the ability to use a wet saw (not sure what tools you have) that would probably work best as it would keep the heat down. Otherwise clean sharp blades, a quick rinse in some tank water, then back in the tank in a moderate flow area and it should be fine.
