went from

ati blue +
ati aquablue special
ati blue +
uvl actinic white


to

ati blue +
ati aquablue special
ati blue +
ati purple +

It's a regal tang. Eventually he'll move to the bigger tank once it's set up, or I'll pull the rockwork apart to catch him one of the two. It glows under my lights to the point it throws the white balance off on my camera. Really pretty fish. Fun to watch and it sleeps on it's side

that would be a 29 inch bulb.
colts are like that he'll perk up in time.
pope, don't pull the rockwork apart to catch a fish get yourself a trap.
I can catch any fish in my tank in no time without touching anything
especially the yellow bellied regal Tang lol there pigs and fall for it within seconds.
here's my trap its a must have.

It's not a 29 inch bulb. It's like a 22 or 23 inch bulb. Not a colt it's a kenya tree. My heater died and it got cold. It's back to full size today happy and dropping babies everywhere. I hate it. I was hoping it'd just stay dead. I have no shortage of them popping up everywhere.

I can honestly say, if I were doing this again (which I am) I would definitely start at 75g reef ready, and just layout the expense to run a big tank. The 29 is constant maintenance.

Ok so for alko worrying over my kenya tree, the original photos in this thread were taken two weeks ago today I give you...

New bulbs! Kenyat10

Colors off because I didn't get home tonight while the full light array was on, so I feel naturally obligated to take more super cool blue light photos.

An fts shot with the flash (I feel this is an epic kinda fail)

No clue. Between testing, dosing, topping off, the monthly water change, and staring in awe wondering "WTF IS THAT?" It all just runs together after a while.

The colony of xenia on the right was chopped to about half that size monday night. Stupid xenia. and google PHE zoanthids, that's what the purples look like. The candy cane in front of it just throws the white balance on my camera way out, so I can't really get much of a pic of the red ring around the mouth.
