    Hi all I'm away on holiday at the mo. I was hoping that the monti was the same as the orange monti frag I have. Tony has been over to mine today to check on the tank. The monti is going orange It is quite a large piece 3x2.5 so I will be fragging it once totally settled. I have another monti which I believe is beach bum. It's not 100% coloured up yet and didn't ship as well as the other. I will update once home. Still have another week in Canada to enjoy

    Hi Jason & Lindsay I have had my ICP results as below 11392952_1452880761694885_3330565031500466537_n by Michael Choppen, on Flickr 11391207_1452880861694875_8278405369559243780_n by Michael Choppen, on Flickr I lost 10 or so frags over the first 3 months I couldn't work out why, Mg and Ca kept rising to. I recently bought a Hanna Alk checker, It read 2 parts higher than my test kit, This explained the High Ca and Mg. Then the doser got blocked on the Mg channel, this explains the Mg result. It was a tough few months but I believe I am slowly on the road to recovery. A few pictures I'm in love with this, Came in as a Bali shortcake, Not sure of latin?

    Hopefully it grows well Lindsay and I can sort out a trade, I may have another frag now too The new growth is bright green Hi all I have a few updates i swapped out a mp10 with a friend who had downsized, I paid £30 and a mp10 for a mp40. Very happy with the flow, I have the mp40 facing down the length of the tank and two mp10's facing towards the front. I have been over the last few weeks bringing my levels (DKH<CA<MG) up to Triton base levels. On Monday I switched from balling lite to Triton.

    Hi Lindsay, Yes I believe it's a monti, I was thinking it was beachbum but I'm sure it's a slow burn monti. Well that's what JF has called it. There was only one piece we managed to get, My friend Tony has the other half. Hopefully I might be able to get another couple of frags, Waiting to hear back from our friend in Germany Also got this one at the same time The base is hi-vis vest green DSC_8843 by chopsie326, on Flickr Picked this beauty up Friday, I'm thinking Tortuosa DSC_9083 by chopsie326, on Flickr

    Thank you Jim I had never kept one before Lindsay and was a little worried due to it's health and more importantly the corals. It ate all but 3 large aiptasia and then loved the polyps on the acans. I went out Friday for the day came home and nearly every lps was sulking, Saturday morning trap went in ! Within a couple of minutes the copperband was in the trap with the yellow tang eating mysis. It was happy in the tank and doing well, DSC_8935 by chopsie326, on Flickr DSC_9006 by chopsie326, on Flickr Greens are coming out in this frag now it's settling, I didn't help it much at the start by being clumsy and having to stick it back down after knocking it off.
