    My tank is finally starting to look natural to me after moving things around quite a bit. It's amazing how much that can throw off your perception for awhile. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Recently my JF "Crazy Fox" underwent the strangest color change (first picture below). No real changes to speak of that would have caused it, but it still seems healthy and I kind of like the new colors. It might just be a sign that it's time to trim down the gorgonian again...

    Not sure what my "Pink Boobies" chalice is up to but it sure is going to be interesting to watch. Anyone seen a chalice droop down like this? [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Last week a blizzard came through Colorado and knocked out power to my tank. After over two days without full power (it had some generator power for essentials) it couldn’t bounce back and finally crashed today. A couple of things made it out, but not much. It was a fun journey, but it looks like this is the end of this story.

    Sorry to hear that it crashed. When I was in the store the first day you guys reopened I could see it wasn't happy. I was hoping it would pull through.

    @mikejrice My tank hasn't been up that long but I have a pice of jack-o-lantern leptoseris I can give you. Also, if that top back yellowish coral is psammocora, I have a piece of that too. Let me know. It may be a chalice. Hope you rebuild that tank as it was absolutely gorgeous
