Frogspawn flying away

Posted at age 28.

I have been behind in blogging about the tank, but here are some more photos.

These duncans were an interesting piece from Aquarium Depot. At first I didn't even realize it was a duncan since it had a bunch of small heads and not a single large head like my first one. But after a few days, they opened up, and now the heads expand almost an inch beyond the base and look quite healthy.

This was one of the free corals from IndoPacific Sea Farms. It has been pretty healthy seeming.

This little dwarf feather duster from Live Aquaria is still hanging on, though his pink sister passed away.

The bigger of my cluster dusters that was $15 from Aquarium Depot has started growing onto the rock I temporarily set it on. I guess that's its permanent home now! The yellow gorgonian is not doing as well. It had been closed most of the first month, then was open for a couple weeks in what I thought was a sign of recovery, but then it went downhill again. I have tried varying flows and feedings, but I didn't see a single polyp open for weeks, and I was sure it was about to rot. But then a few started peaking out again. So we will see!

My frogspawns have basically all completely or partially separated from their skeletons within the space of a couple of weeks. I'm not sure what is causing it.

The hammer so far seems staying put in his base.

One of my galexea frags is fine, one is mostly dead aside form one healthy head, and the other two, oldest frags are mostly dead and receding. Those were mostly due to an algae overgrowth, I think.

This guy (favites?) was bought on a whim, and doesn't look so good, but is still alive.
