Was playing with a Canon Eos camera last night and got these pics. Thought I would share!

This is some sort of bivalve. Never noticed him until this move. Any ideas on what it is?

My beloved clownfish, Toni and Krusty (the Clownfish). Also can see my surviving green slimer frag.

Two of my pink birds nest colonies.

Another mushroom and zoo colony. Also a bumblebee snail is in there somewhere.

Todd, my Foxface. Named after the fox in Fox & the Hound

Can you spot the hidden fishy now? He's my Lawnmower Blenny, Popeye.

great looking tank haha what kind of light you got feeding these corals??
Got a 250 W, 20,000K Hamilton MH in a DIY Luminarc reflector with blue LED's for a little more actinic. That's it.

Nice pics! I picked up green zoas like that from Vivid Aq., they called them "atomic green zoas."

Todd looks hungry!

GEEZZ I see more Hair Algae than Fish... What are your Phosphates like?

You should have seen it before my move when I got to scrub each rock and coral down! Phosphates and Silicates are both zero. Always had a phosphate reactor going. RO/DI water with a TDS of 0. Ammonia, Nitrite and nitrate all zero. Got a fuge with tons of macro algae in it. New MH bulb. It came up out of the blue. Nothing new added, no changes in tank parameters, but all of a sudden--POOF--tons of hair algae! I have no idea where it all came from or what is feeding it, but since the move it seems to be going down. If you have an explanation, I would love to hear it!

Thanks for the complements guys!

Todd is ALWAYS hungry! He would eat until he explodes given the chance. Trust me, they are well fed.

That's it! RDE's Knew it was something like that.

As far as the foxface being lazy, he is worse than our Labrador! Lazy until there is food, then he is in the front of the line! Actually hand fed him the other day for the first time!

my foxface is the same but he is a metallic and waits for me to pet his little spines and give him treats :lol: he makes bubbles in exchange for his meals.
i thought the yellows were better grazers but every fish is different.

Yes, he does constantly graze. Don't think he would ever let me pet him though. He sees my entire hand in the tank and he darts towards the back-bottom, spines up, and in his war colors! He's getting better though.
