Well, got some nice corals yesterday in exchange for an old T5 unit I had.
Also, have a tiny (.5" or so) blue devil damsel who resides in my sump to help eat uneaten food - he is never going into the display....
All of these pics taken with an underwater camera
Big zoa colony (about the size of my fist):
Sweet green ones
Also got a nice fluoro green hairy mushroom, GSP frags, large plating monti frag, medium white xenia frag (sulking at the moment)
My tank is not really ready for SPS but the guy just threw in that monti for the sake of it

Very nice, unleashed, and I particularly liked the flashed zoo on the top picture. On the lower right, is that a pinkish amphipod I see, or something else?

Great stuff, can't wait to see it all opened up in a FTS.40g SW

Thanks guys. You seriously don't know how hard it is to get good zoos here in NZ. Most of the good stuff goes off to the States and Asia and we usually just get brown ones. Occasionally some really nice ones come through, but not often......

Also adding a TUNZE Auto Top-Off unit after x-mas to keep up with evaporation

New hairy mushroom:
New Plating Monti
Some sweet mushrooms. Had them for about a year but have never taken a pic of them until about 10 mins

Love the skirt length on the new zoa's in the first two pics.
I'm also considering getting the same ATO device you're getting (the Tunze).African cichlid and saltwater aquariums
