These pics are great, are you using a macro lens? If so which one I am having trouble deciding on which one.

Yes, they are Utter Chaos.

The camera is just a regular camera, no macro lens. I learned a couple tricks that seem to work better for me, like no flash.

very nice high end stuff my only concern would be them all on that one rock cramping each other and one prevailing over another and killing out on or several types

If they get that big to cramp each other, that would be a great problem to have.

God... those Agaves are beautiful. They're still on my wanted list but can't find them locally at a decent price. Jellies.

Well they may be one of the few zoas/palys that seems to go up in price. Initially they cost around $20. Now I see vendors consistently sell them for $50 per polyp. I will just continue to grow my 3 frags out and let the vendors keep theirs for themselves. Seems to be a bit pricey and overpriced.

What's your maintenance schedule and what are you using/feeding? I hear the agaves are a bit tricky to keep.

My only tip with agaves, lower light initially (shade) and slowly move them into direct low light. Just my experience. No feeding...
