Lotsa pictures of my reef tank

As promised here are some pictures taken in the last 2 days.  For those of you joining recently, this is a 125g reef tank with a separate sump and fuge located in the basement.  You read more about the set-up here and updated here.

These are a few shots of my open brain coral.  From full to close-up.

My dumb starfish got stuck in my gorgonia.  How does this happen?  He got himself out luckily.

The dera is one of my favorite clams.  I also have a tiny maxima that is dark blue with black stripes and a beautiful ultra crocea that I have yet to take a good picture of.

The obligatory full tank shot (fts).  But, with some interesting angles.

This is one of my favorite pictures.  This is my orange plate coral as close range.

Finally got a decent shot of my hippo tang.

The elusive copperband butterfly.  He is certainly not shy   He really likes the camera, but only comes out when the halides are off and the actinics are on.  I thought this second shot was great.

I totally forget what type of zoos these are, but they are beautiful and the pictures do not do them justice.

This lawnmower was recently in the overflow for a week.  I finally got him out.  He is like the granddaddy of the tank simply because of his long eyebrows and facial expression.

This spotted mandarin dragonet has doubled in size in the three weeks I have had him.

I also have some video that I will load up at another time.
