    Well, I finally got the new sump in and moved the tank to the new house. Most things survived the move. Here's how it looks now. The tank is actually over a year old. It just has a new look in a new location.

    This is the Toadstool

    That's enough of a strain on the bandwidth for one post. Will post more in another post.
     
  2. Looking sharp. That is one monster toadstool.

    Thanks! The head is about 12" across now. I keep waiting for Colin to set his tank up, then we are going to chop it up but good! :twisted:

    I'm not taking any FTS till I clean the glass. I have been just letting everything settle in after the move and addition of the new sump. I have friggin coraline all over the glass and a nice layer of algae at the sand line. Once I clean all that up, I'll post an FTS

    Thanks! I feed him New Life Spectrum daily. He also gets nori and the food we made at SLUSAMSON's meeting about twice a week. Almost daily on the nori as well. He's a bit of a pig and a huge bully.

    I am chuckling at the PLEASE DO NOT TAP ON THE GLASS sticker. :D

    Your tank looks really good. It's also fun to follow the progress of it because it was started not long after mine. Pretty much once I got everything transferred into my new tank, you bought my old rock. :)

    It looks like our toadstools are running a race for growth. When you and Colin get ready to frag yours up, let me know. I would not mind seeing it done.

    No problem. I'll let you know. Might be a good thing to record and post up for anyone else wondering how to do it.

    About the "Please do not tap on glass" stickers, the guy I bought the tanks from was using them in his shop and put that there to let the public know not to mess with the glass. I thought it was cool and just left it. It makes a great conversation piece!
     
  11. I fraged mine about a month ago and that was the easiest thing. Cut with scissors like a pizza (triangles). Rubberband to a small piece of live rock and make sure that your rubberband is not too tight. Attaches in about 1-2 weeks. Grows very fast.
