Nice! Those aren't the ones you just got are they?

Thats weird because the splitting one actually looks a little bleached and less healthy than the others.

How long have you had that one?

I see what your sayin now, earlier when i read this i thought the one above the one that dont look so good was the shroom he was talking about.
I think he is refering to the shroom in the bottom center of the pic now that i look again. My guess is that it dont look so good because its splitting, i have never seen it happen like that so i dont know.

Great pic current! I have never seen it in progress like that, very nice.

08/11/2007, 03:37 PM
yeah, its not bleached, but almost streched out, I will get some more pics, and Sufunk, no it is one i have had for awhile.

Thats cool. Was it "figure eighting" like the ones next to it are before it started to split?

If so, looks like your soon gonna have a bunch of splits! I have some doing that but none have split.

yeah it was figure 8ting, here are a couple more pics. I cant take good pics for the life of me. I have crappy lighting now until I get my bigger tank.

08/11/2007, 04:05 PM
its almost done, has about 1/4" left to go

08/11/2007, 04:09 PM
That's sweet! Looks like your gonna double your rics soon!

Am i crazy or does the right side of the splitting ric have 3 mouths?!? Kind of looks like it has 3 mouths just on the one side in the pic!

08/11/2007, 04:13 PM
yeah it does have 3 mouths. At this point I have so many ricordea I dont know what to do with them. They are taking over my tank

08/11/2007, 04:14 PM
Yeah, i'm almost in the same boat!

For some reason, we still keep buying them though,lol:cool:

08/11/2007, 04:16 PM
yeah, Im hoping Ill come home one day and there will be ea bigger tank sitting in my living room

08/11/2007, 04:19 PM
Lol, same here. Sometime in the next few years i may upgrade hopefully to maybe a 300g or so.

You should talk to Jeff about making you a bigger tank in the near future. Probably cheaper than you think it would be.

08/11/2007, 04:25 PM
yeah, im looking for a 180 or 210. unless of course I go with the elos 150, but it is kind of pricey

08/11/2007, 04:33 PM
I got the 180 over the 210 because i didn't want it 30" deep, too hard to move corals around and such. I wanted to get in 30 or 36 inches wide but getting it made custom was just too much.

Hopefully in a few years i could get something made like a 96x30x36.

Nice! I love seeing that in my tank too :)

08/11/2007, 05:52 PM
See Sufunk. I'm 6'7" so I have long arms, so it is no big deal for me getting a tall tank. One of the many advantages of being tall

08/11/2007, 08:56 PM
what i usually do is cut them in half when they start to split like that.....makes it go faster....:P
