    Lol, I have some up on RC, where I do most my posting. They are pics from after I had my tank crash, so there isn't any coral. I have lots of frags now, but my buddy who does the photography has been in Hawaii, so I need to get him back here for more photos. Here is the link to RC (I'm not sure if this is allowed, if its not I'm sure the link will be removed).

    Oh, they are labeled TurboSnail8898, but I had my name changed on RC to McCrary, which I like much better.

    How is the stuff that you got from the frag swaps doing? That tiny green milli frag that I got last time that was about 1 cm long has doubled in size in one month, and now has two branches coming off of it. And the color looks so much better now than it did when I got it. I'm looking forward to next months frag swap because I think I need A LOT more SPS than what I have now.

    Sorry the pics weren't very good, I am going to get some better ones when Scott has some time. I will try to get one two closeups of the skimmer pulling out some junk. I only feed about 2 cubes a week so there isn't a lot of stuff to skim out, but the skimmer still seems to do well.

    I can frag anything that you want, here is a list of my SPS.

    Cali tort
    red monti cap
    pink styno
    earth and sky acro
    yellow with blue tips acro
    purpleish acro (lol, this would be better with pics)
    tyree ponape birdsnest
    acro nanae (brownish green with purple tips)
    a couple milles
    acro prostrata

    I think there may be a couple more, but I don't know. Some can be fragged and some are too small. I could give them to you at the frag swap thingy instead of you having to buy some. The acro nanae is awesome and grows very fast, I could frag that like 10 times, lol.

    I'll take whatever you're willing to give! I feel bad taking it without giving anything in return, but I know you don't want any LPS/zoas/softies which is the only stuff I have that's big enough to frag :(.

    Thanks Yote, it was a real bummer. I had some good growth on my SPS ad it was kind of a low blow when I lost them while I was busy studying for midterms. I am still not sure of what might have caused the crash, but I suspect a fish death might have started the chain reaction.

    I've heard that if you complain about their service or livestock, your post gets deleted and you get banned, even if it's a valid complaint (hmmm like 2/3 of my anthias arriving dead)...

    I did have 9 chromis in the tank, but have since reduced the number to 3 to help with my bioload. The tank always did well with a full load of fish, but I have wanted to lighten the load so I don't have to run carbon as often and do less water changes. When the Regal angel and longnose butterfly died I decided that I would make fish secondary to the coral, so the last 3 chromis are going to leave the tank eventually. But after watching 2/3's of them get trapped they have become wise to my techniques, lol. I hate when fish get smart.
