    Oh and this...sold to me as a Tierra del Fuego, wild colony fresh cut...no idea what it actually is. It came from Dr. Mac at pacific east aquaculture, who I normally consider knowledgable and trustworthy. Like I said I bit the bullet this show. image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

    Everything is looking pretty dang nice. You should be very proud of how well the abroholensis is doing.

    The Cameleon is very cool, my favorite reptile.

    It's an abrotanoides, an even harder to keep species IMO.

    That's the first friendly jackson's horned chameleon I've seen. Very friendly and posed for many photos!

    Fantastic Sticks.

    A. Florida, the wild piece. A. Sarmentosa right below, another wild piece, it's really started to table out nicely.

    I just picked up a nice efflo with potential to be purple. Very excited.

    In comparison to other SPS, how do the sarmentosa and Florida like their flow and light?

    Thank you. :)
    There about 18 inches in the direct path of the Mp on reef crest. About that far from the light. So strong to both light and flow.

    So many nice corals guys. Sadly, most of my acros seem to be in states of dying. The more I chase the problem, the worse it seems to get. The closer I get to "ideal" water conditions and practices, the worse my acros seem to do. They sure are a challenge.

    Thanks. :)

    It has taken me a couple tries to see some good outcomes. Trust me I have killed my share of sps. When the focus is Acropora it's hard initially.
