How's the big tank doing?
The 150 is fish only with one multi head Duncan. This is one of my favorite's. Got this one from Kelvin at KnockOut  in the PoconosAs it has gotten older you can see the change in the face
I have just picked up this tiny Trigger,and placed it in the 46 for now.It will go in the 220 ,when it grows a little.

I have place several of the frags I had in the 46 into the 30L . I'm going to be using two 30L for frag tanks. One has be running for a while that started as holding my original rock from the 46 that started growing Xenia. Using just a poor LED light ,I have been able to retard the Xenia from the rock.I now am using a 4 bulb waivepoint t5 as my light on this 30L.The frags seem to like the move,exept my green birdsnest.

Very nice Benny.  Glad to see your tanks doing well. You are growing a nice collection.

When you start to get too many frags, I'll be happy to trade for some mesh bags I tied together to hold algae sheets

This reddish piece is the second time this has come from nowhere ,to start growing off a rock. This is in my 30L,and the rock in there is from my 46.It first grew in the 46,it lasted for a while ;then disappeared . I hope to have this last and grow thick.So I could try and frag this.

Is that a coral or a cool looking algae?

I would definitely call it one cool piece of algae . I had changed the light on the 30L from a simple LED to the 4 bulb T5 Waivepoint. The light doesn't cover the whole tank.The edges are kind of dark.

I'm seeing nice growth from most of the zoas.King Midas has grown thick with several heads.The Rastas ,Purple Hornets;and Blue Galaxies are starting to come in.

I have had problems with some of the other corals. Lost some Duncan heads ,along with a lot of the Frogspawn.

Im glad the galaxia is doing well for you Benny! That red algae is Dragon Breath Algae from what I have read. Is it red with orange tips? I used to have it but it disapeared when I upgraded from my 55. Let me know if you need help setting up that big tank.

Looking good benny!  Btw oddly enough i had that red algae pop up in my tank as well.  Started off as little red bubbles then just kind of exploded into some.  I scrapped it off the rock to make room for frags, but have some red bubbles popping up again.
