I hope so, It is a contest Pico on another Forum.

Lights not on yet so natural sunlight photographs. Need to sort a reliable timer
Also the mushroom rock has some form of LPS growing? I assume LPS as the "live rock" appears to be similar to an Acan skeleton (plus no SPS in the tank this came from), also lots of tiny Feather Dusters, a possible Peanut Worm and a Chicken Liver Sponge.
I am slightly obsessed with my Hitchhikers at the moment as well
The Aiptasia has been living in an empty Coffee Jar for approximately 4 weeks now and has grown very large (no light, heat or filtration) - my curiosity

I have been trying to sort through my pests that I have had so far in the Tank. Seems that each month I get something new. Although the Stars of the Show are Penny (Hermit) and Benny (Goby)
Need to replenish my CuC today, the last was found this morning in the intake to the HOB
Hate Nudibranches and Flatworms, but have Baby Yuma's everywhere now

What's your plan for the pests?

Are you aware that xenia can/will grow like a weed?

The pest Corals (Aiptasia, GSP, Xenia, Bubble Algae) I am slowly setting up a Pest Tank (Spare Fluval Spec 3 10Litres), the Nudi's, Flatworms etc I have managed to manually remove in combination with more stringent dipping routine. I am counting on the Xenia and GSP to take over
