Turning Super Male

I am amazed at the transformation my Eightline Flasher Wrasse (Paracheilinus octotaenia) has gone through.

This is what the wrasse looked like when I purchased it.

Holy Cow!

My Dad fed a teaspoon of the Brine Shrimp Direct GP 50-100 Micron Reef & Larval Diet last night and the corals puffed up today. All of the LPS and mushrooms were fully expanded. All of the SPS had extra long polyp extension. The pictures my Dad sent are pretty much what you see is what you get, the color balance is almost spot on.

I'm seeing very good growth over the past month, the algae on the rocks are clearing up now that they are curing are the new skimmer has been running for the past month. Some of the Xenia on the overflow were trimmed because they prevented water from entering the overflow.
