I take status report pics every month or two. Below is the ones from the last set that are clear enough to share. For history pics see my coral list.

Acans - in general the PE on my acans is down a little. I think it might be due to reducing my phosphates to undetectable with a DD phosphate kit.

Acros - in general doing very well. Good color, PE and growth.

The polyps are very colorful but bringing out the purple on the flesh isn't easy.

Acro%20-%20Pastel%20-%20YourReef.jpg

Pic #7: Pastel Acro - New Acquisition from YourReef
This is one of the very colorful wild collected corals that John has been brining in recently. Unlike most of the wild collected corals I get, this didn't brown out. Anyone know what species this is?

Pic #9: Wild Collected rainbow acro from YourReef
This is another one of my recent acquisitions from YourReef
Like most of the wild collected corals I get, this one browned out. When they brown out like this they usually take around three months to come back. I've moved it back onto the rocks. Yes, that's brown cyano on my frag rack. Seems to come hand in hand with vodka dosing for me.

This is another one of my recent acquisitions from YourReef
Like most of the wild collected corals I get, this one also browned out.

Doing well for a yellow stinger. They are a slow grower.

MARS Lokani - Frag
This was the longest branch from my main colony. My new pheonix bulbs are a bit much for the main colony so I moved this accidental frag lower.

Now the chalices. In general they are doing well.

These guys require a lot of light to color up. If you compare this to my previous photos you'll notice it has lost a lot of color. I moved it down four inches. I recently move a large piece of it up to see if it would color up again.

Pic #10 - Orange Cap Monti
I'm trying to mix this with the green cap you see in the pic.

I thinned (removed whole branches) this one about a month ago. The yellow base is much more prominant now.

FWIW - I have it from a reliable source that that brown slime is a diatom, not cyano.

Hey Matt

Thanks - I've still got several very nice shrooms from your tank. I'll have to include some pics of them in the next round.

Hey Paul

Thanks, it looks like yours is starting to take off too.

blue44magnum, who dat?
Thanks

Hey Doug

Thanks, but I don't think mine is in that league. Maybe in a couple of years if I can keep this unprecidented success up. I've got to erradicate the @#$$ brown button polyps.
