How often is that fire shrimp active? Been thinking of adding one to the be but read they hide a lot. Great looking fish!

Shrimp is out and about a lot, mixes it up pretty good during feeding time. Has recently taken to a cave that makes him a little harder to see sometimes, but he's pretty easy to find.

Nice photos Chris. Love the striking colors on the new male Lyretail.

Hope he and the old male get along okay. Looks like the old male wasn't as far along in his development as the new one. Never seen it but I've heard some male anthias will revert to female when a more dominant male comes along. Interesting to see how that works out.

Billed as a torch when I got it, probably 8 inches across now, haven't counted the heads in a while, but it seems to be doing well.

Thanks Phil, I like how the new male is progressing as well. The old male certainly has lost any purple and is looking more like a female every day, but I don't know he'll lose the spike or the fin spots? anyway, calm waters for now so we'll see how far I get since I've had no luck catching him/her.


Tempted to pick up this guy: http://www.liveaquaria.com/diversden/It ... did=291904 but with our weather I'll probably resist the urge.

Psh. I suck at ID'ing torches vs hammers vs frogspawn vs branching vs wall vs whatever.

Got my automatic water change hooked back up today finally after the sump move.

Thanks Korrine! Seeing some color and growth on SPS finally with all the cleanup I did over my vacation. *phew* I really let things go so glad to see things are working during cleanup. Also changing 3 gallons a day right now as well which hopefully will help maintain current levels.

Lost a fish for the first time in a while, Red Stripe Atlantic Hogfish went surfing it looks like. Guess the tank lost it's bully. Maybe it's time for some more anthias.

Wish my purple monti would grow like yours. Been in the tank for a few months now and barely any growth. My orange grows like a weed though
