New Corals

I picked up four very small SPS frags last Sunday 6/7.

Miami Orchid. My child BTA is in the bacground

Green Birds Nest

Purple Digitata (behind the Ausie Acan)

And finally a teal something or another. Looking at it essentially from the top down.

Hunting for a Home

My second anemone, the child, emerged from hiding yesterday evening and started crawling up the back glass. It got dangerously close to my overflow so I decided a relocation was necessary. I removed him from the glass quite easily and placed it in the crevice between two rocks. It has moved about 6 inches from that spot in the last 24 hours. The nightmare scenario is this guy getting sucked up in a power head and nuking the tank.

In Hiding

I was out of town from Tuesday through Friday last week. When I returned home I found that one of the anemones had moved and was in hiding. I'm calling this one the clone or child since the other anemone is in the original spot and pretty much looks the same size as the anemone before the split. In fact I forgot all about it for a while before realizing there should be two anemones.

I moved some rocks around and turned some rocks over and found the child hanging upside down under a rock perhaps a foot away from the parent. It looks healthy so I'm not too woried that it is hiding.
