Everything is going great, the purple/green blasto has three heads now and all of the diatom is gone, haven't added anything but everything is still good. The crested gecko keeps knocking them off though so some I'm reattaching.

Ok guys here is a little update on the tank. The newest inhabitants are a Yellow Watchman Goby and a Tiger Pistol Shrimp. The other are still in the tank and the corals are either doubled in size or have a new head. The original stomatella snails have reproduced and I have a huge population of them. Got some coralline algae appearing also and I have a pod explosion also.

FTS.

Image
Pincushion Urchin with feelers out.

Image
Candy Canes doing well finally got the urchin to leave it alone.

Image
Closer FTS.

Image
Red Blasto is Huge and it has another head behind it.

Purple/Green Blasto has 3 heads total now.

Image
Superman Monti still doing well, polyps aren't fully out as I blasted sand off it.

Image
Image
The Tiger Pistol ans his burrow, The Watchman Goby has paired with it also.
I couldn't get a pic of the goby as he wouldn't come out and when he did come out he'd shoot back into the burrow.

Image
Image
Image
The nass. snails are still doing great cleaning up the tank.

Comment on what you guys think and soon I can get a shot of the goby ill post it.

Shot of the purple/green blasto forgot to upload it the other day. Can't get a shot of the goby, he just pokes his head out and when I grab my phone he darts back and hides the shrimp is more comfortable than he is. Any suggestions on how to get him out more?

Finally another update guys, its been awhile. Tonight I got a single percula clown and its acclimating as I type this. Corals and all are doing excellent. The purple blasto has two large heads and about 3-4 tiny new ones. The red blasto has two large heads also. The candy canes are in the process of budding I can see two mouths in each frag. Superman gained its purple back and is encrusting evenly. All inverts are doing excellent also the pistol shrimp I've actually hand feed and the go by is getting better on his shyness.

Image

And the newest addition. Comment guys.

Looking good and you've made some real progress. Can't wait to see what it looks like as you both add more things and as things begin to grow in more.

Thank you, its surely but slowly becoming reef like :D. I'm ready to see it as it would look 6 months to a year old.
