His tanks are even more amazing in person. Plus the anthias is the rarest, and coolest fish I've ever come across.

Yeah, they are.  I've yet to see one in person.  Just on the divers den of liveaquaria.  Someday, maybe someday one will please the eyes of those looking into my tanks.

You ask and you shall receive.

Some grow pics, taken less than 4 months apart.

A handful of things were moved around a bit. Like the frogspawn, and a couple SPS frags.

Your growth is amazing! Its exciting to see stumps turn into trees. Good work. We need to have someone in the club go around with a super expensive camera and capture the hard to see colors we have in our tanks.
