The Coral Banded is looking fine now. It molted a couple of days ago and readily accepted some frozen food this AM.

This coral banded shrimp is in the 29 gal reef. The last couple of days it has been very lethargic. (The camera was going dead so was only able to make this one photo). It did take food this AM but has not improved. It will probably die within a day or so possibly of old age.
Everything else seems to be doing fine in this tank. The refugium has a fiber pad that is supposed to remove all heavy metals and phosphate. However, I will go ahead with a 10 gal water change tomorrow.

A closeup of the Canary porites. The branches are becoming more branched and it is growing down over the plug it arrived on. There are two small points in the new growth on the plug.
The two upper colonies of zenia were cut drastically but have made a full recovery. The acro to the right has added several buds since being added. The star polyps are open all the time but do not appear to be adding much growth as yeat.
Left side of the reef. Corals in this view include Pocillopora, Montipora and Hydnopora and 4 polyps of a trumpet coral. The sps corals are growing much more rapidly than the LPS corals.
