Ok, I really need to get camera lessons, I suck at picture taking. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm running a Olympus E-620 DSLR with a crappy 14-42mm Olympus lens.

Anyway, here's a couple shots...

I hadn't realized just how long it had been since I had updated things. Since the last update I've lost a few fish. I have no idea why any of them died. No obvious indications, all fine one day and dead the next. The Naso died while I was working out of town. Wife called me said he was stuck on one of the MP40's dead. The Flame Angel died under similarly mysterious circumstances, but I did have her for a while being one of the first fish I bought when I started the hobby 5 or 6 years ago.
The Coral banded shrimp ended up in the overflow and tried to go down the herbie siphon - didn't make it. And lastly the male anthias just disappeared one day never to be seen again. I never found the body or anything - weird since I don't have any hermit's.
Anyway here's a couple fairly poopy shots taken with my iPad.

FTS - I still have the yellow tang and the Sailfin.

Tank is looking great Dom! So spacious. Wish I had toom like that. Those fish probably died of old age, sorry for your loses. Now it's winter, we can add more fish to the tank. 😜

Hey Warren, Still lurking, lol. Life has just gotten INSANELY busy. I had to shut my tank down about a year and a half ago. It was killing me to see it go down hill and get overrun by neglect. I still have all my equipment, the tank still sits in my entry beckoning to me every time I look at it. I entertained the idea of turning it into a paludarium and getting frogs or something, but I couldn't find the time for that either
I'm hopefully making some major business changes by the end of this year, so hopefully get things back up and running again.
