Finally got a picture of him at feeding time tonight.
Finally got a decent picture of my new Kole Tang.
I had to crank the ISO up to 1600 since he never stops moving and I don't have a very fast lens, so there's a bit of noise. Like the photo's I found on the internet before buying him, photo's just don't do the colors of this gorgeous fish justice.
I played around with some post processing and at least got the colors a bit truer.

Just saw something that made me very very happy. When we moved my reef to Tuan's a year ago, my little randolfs pistol shrimp was no where to be found. Tuan says he never saw any sign of him in over a year. Well, guess who I just saw with the red flashlight!

Talk about a tough little bugger! Now I just need
Just purchased a 150 Gal tank off Craig's List today. I'm picking it up Friday afternoon. The tank is 7' x 1.5' x 2', so same cross section as my current 65 Gal freshwater tank, but 4' longer! It comes with a pretty nice, very strong looking stand that is only 24" tall, this will work well since it will located along a short wall giving me close to 2 feet above for lighting. And also making for easy maintenance and viewing from couch height. This will be long, slow build as I have to make some

I'm pretty happy with how clean and stable my tank is now since adding an algae scrubber last spring and switching to 2 part dosing instead of just using kalk in my top off. So I decided it was time for some new corals.
So started browsing Reef Koi's web site and here's what I came up with.
One little Acro frag. Colors aren't too bright yet, but this is a green coral with purple
