    Slow but steady progress...

    Early morning shot with most of the fish still asleep, but life in the galaxy is evident!

    Additions since last month:

    2x Green Star Polyps, Pectinia, Frogspawn, Torch, Favia Moon, Pineapple and a small orange zoa frag. 8x Blue/green chromis (of which only two are visible) and two cleaner shrimps (also hiding).

    OK, looks a bit better.
    The Halimedia (to the right of the eggcrate) do still have a lot of algae on it. And the back panel.

    Got myself this little guy. Bristle tooth tang. although he does not like the long algae strands he does eat areas that looks "clean". Eating new growth mostly.

    Some new additions and a fts.
    Starting to get some slime algae, still trying to trace the source.
    Also added a very nice pistol shrimp, but to get a pic of him with the watchman also in the cave is impossible.

    Not much happening on my side.
    I added an extra RW15 to the opposite side of the tank to add more random flow in the tank.

    Growth has been awesome all parameters are 100% in check!

    Ill be adding to my CUC this month and maybe some more zoas!
