I've been so busy I haven't been able to see this thread for a while. Your tank looks wonderful! So much color! You're seriously making me want to have fish again

thank you :)

I am sad that my biggest colony of Zoas did not survive the water change. I guess it did not like it :( the other two struggled, but came back.

But I did get some nice new zoas and polyps yesterday. Will have to take pics :)

I am setting up a 2 gal cookie jar planted tank. I keep toying with the idea of another SW, but I decided planted this time

Are you referring to the blue legged hermit crab?

Yep, that's a blue legged hermit crab! He constantly changes shells, he's a fashionable one

You really have a nice setup Draco. So beautiful. It must be a very relaxing past-time watching the fish and other creatures. Thanks for sharing.

it is very relaxing. I often pull my chair up, turn my overhead off and just watch the fish, and enjoy the corals. Once, I found myself watching for over an hour. whoops. lol

I can definitely see how easy it would be to lose track of time. Like being in another world .....

What a transformation!  Absolutely beautiful! 

I'm glad I was able to watch you set this up from the beginning. It's been fascinating and educational.

whahey! Been a while!

Nothing's really changed in my tank, except growing polyps and corals :) All shrimps, snails, fish and crabs are doing great!

I am holding off on getting anything else for the tank as I am in the process of looking for a new place to live. Once i move, and space permitting, i want to upgrade to a larger tank :D

Aaaaand now you're an addict lol.  Upgrade fever is tough, there is nothing more fun and frustrating than a new tank.

Hi, I'm Karen and I am a fish-addict. lol.

It'll be several months before I can get a new tank. I need to see where I'm living and see if I can put bigger tank there!

not sure if I have a close up right now.. I'll try to remember to take a photo of it later when I get home :)
I forget what it's called. The stems looks like bamboo
