That's really a stellar tank. The corals selection and placement is beautiful and has a very natural look to it. Kudos.

Would you guys believe there are two 4ft (I think they are 4ft) moray eels in there too! A snowflake and a zebra.

lets not get too carried away the snowflake is just under 3. Biggest damn snowflake I ever saw though. I'm more proud of the two egg laying pairs of clowns. Maroons and true perks in the same tank.

Absolutely gorgeous apple. I have one and everytime someone that's knows what they are sees it, they think I'm crazy for keeping one. But I tell you what...I've put my little apple through quite a bit of stress (not on purpose...moved twice, upgraded twice) and he's still doing great. He's always open within a few minutes of being placed in his new tank.
Here's the most recent picture of him.

Not the showpiece your Sea Apple is but this is my spiny sea cucumber I picked up yesterday. Bought it a week ago but wanted to time its arrival around water changes. Watching it eat is extremely cool...like a kid licking his fingers

Actually you are right. He was just out and he is almost as long as the tank is wide which is 4 ft. Guess you know my tank better than I!!

I add live (the bottle says live...who knows if it actually is live) phytoplankton every 2 to 3 days. I find mine likes a place where his body is protected but he can get his feathery appendages out into a good deal of flow.
