I've been watching my lobo change shape before my eyes over the past month. I've had this lobo for over a year, and it has always looked like half a tennis ball, shape-wise. Lately it has been flattening out for no reason that I can think of. And the top of it has begun to show traces of bleaching, just slightly. Since it is in the front left corner of the tank, I placed my hand over it to see if I could create shade, which I could. So I grabbed a piece of scrap acrylic, peeled off the film from
It's nice to get some behind-the-scenes knowledge of one of the foods offered in our hobby.
I hope y'all are enjoying your reef tanks and being aware of tank temperatures this time of year. Keep your babies safe.
Here's a very surprising coral recently posted by Walt Smith Int'l Fiji. Too good to be true, right?

And a bunch of images. It came out of the ocean like this; it's not some man-made merging of two colors. Neat find.
I spotted this on Facebook today. Image by Reefkoi. Look at the size of the polyps that opened up on this Chalice coral. I read that it's from Jason Fox's collection.
The frag tank holds roughly 10g of saltwater, and the corals in there are growing bigger fighting for space. I've considered building a new one to replace this one once the 400g gets here. I don't know the date unfortunately.
Yesterday as I was looking at the tank, I noticed that one end was floating - which it never does. The first thing I did was put some shims under the end to support the corners of the tank.
