Thanks! The goal right now is to fill in the zoa garden before the scrambled eggs take over the whole rock (I’d like to add rastas, playboy bunnies, and tubbs blues). Then I’d like to add a pink or red Monti cap somewhere mid level in the tank where it won’t do too much shading. And finally add some sps once I think the tanks ready and my job settles down to part time for school (hopefully around August/September).

Sounds nice!  I’ve got some orangish red monti cap you can have if you want it when you are ready, just hit me up!  I may be able to peel a few rastas off my plug for you too. To be honest I haven’t looked at them for a while but a month or so there were new polyps sprouting on it. I’ll have a look after work.

That would be amazing if you could do that! I’ve always wanted to try Monti cap, do you have any tips on placement in a nano to make sure it doesn’t shade out the entire tank eventually?

Fragging lol. It will fill the whole thing if you let it!

Had a great time meeting @Muttley000 this weekend, he’s a real stand up guy and was great to talk with. Got the Rasta from dbtc as well as a really nice ricordea Yuma and piece of monti cap. I also picked up an acan lord frag from salty critter in vermilion this morning.

Zoa garden is starting to fill in (need a few more colors still):
