Getting around to cleaning....





It's one of my most not loved subjects ever! Forever busy just to come home to a fish tank that needs cleaned. Well after spending a half hour or so cleaning the glass and pumps my tank looks great again! The greater amount in water movement stimulates polyp extension. So.... I decided it was time to take some underwater shots using my new underwater box. This guy recently colored up and started growing. When I bought it in April, it was grey with brown tips. I was told it would color up as above but was skeptical at that time. However, I was proven wrong. And I'm not complaining by any means. I believe this picture shows my feelings!

Beautiful red coral. I saw your post on rc and saw that you are local I am in Dayton. I hope to one day be able to keep great looking corals like yours.

Thanks Jeff. I'm sure if you stick with the hobby and really sit down to learn the chemistry behind it, you'll have no issues whatsoever keeping corals.

If you ever sell any frags I would like to pick up some. I was at the cora swap and was dissapointed that most of the nice stuff was presold. I had one guy promise me a frag of red planet but he didnt show. I was bummed.

I can let you know. I will probably frag this guy sometime around March or April. If you have an interest then, shoot me an email.
