180 Reef 2 Months old--Many Pics

I have had this up for 2 months now and thought I would share a little of the experience. Now these pics were taken with an awsome camera (Canon Ditital Rebel XT) but a not so awsome Photographer (me).

I will host any meeting that needs a place. Just remember that I live in Pueblo. Eric, yes that is your Monti. I am running 3 Hamilton 14k 250 watt. (1-DE HQI, 2-SE) Everything is really growing, even in such a short time.

Thanks Martin, things are growing like crazy including your scroll coral and pineapple brain. How are your fingers? Healed hopefully. Did you ever get that 300 going? Any pics?

5 Month Pics

OK guys, here are some 5 month pics. Take a look at the growth of the orange Monti Cap at 2 months old, and at 5 months old.

Can someone id the sps at the bottom of the pics. It is green with shades of blue.

Robert, that green Monti Cap is the frag you gave me 6 months ago.

Thanks Martin, how about some pics of that 300 that you have going up there. Sure would like to see what you gave up the 180 for. You have had it set up less than 5 months and I bet it looks amazing also.
