The Big Picture

It's been a while since I posted pictures of the tank in its entirety. So, here is a picture along with some closer, but not macro, shots. I have also included a picture of the tank the first week it was set up almost three months ago. In today's pictures you can see the coralline algae growing in patches on the filter lift tubes and the back glass. You can also see that the back glass has taken on a green hue. This is algae that I just let grow on the back. It's a pain to remove plus it serves as a food source for the snails and the tang. The rocks have purpled up quite nicely with additional coralline growth. It's interesting comparing today's picture with the picture of the sterile brand new tank taken three months ago.

Also, my green bubble anemone decided to move to the front of the tank for all to see. It had been hanging out in the back of the live rock near the left filter lift tube. It moved overnight to its new location a few days ago. Unfortunately, in its new location it partially obscures the rock with the Christmas tree worms. However, that rock can easily be moved.
