Oh apologies, I thought we were talking about feather stars fish. Not feather dusters.
Ignore my comment.
O M G you sent me on an hour of re-reading everything I've read in a panic of "did I make a horrible mistake! I won't even buy ANY starfish for that reason!!". WOOO! Panic over! πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚
The good news is in my deeper digging found something I hadn't read before where some said their feather dusters seemed to like baby brine shrimp in addition to phytoplankton so I'm going try a special feast for mine to see how he responds. Your panic-inducing comment was worth it!

Sooo, I've got 12 frags from aquashella coming out of QT this week. Then shop.zoanthids.com had a big sale. They're one of my go to venders at aquashella, Brandon is awesome. Anyway, I was looking at my tank and thinking "hey, look! There are a few open spots for my zoa garden". I have space for maybe 3 more.

...then this happened. I got 5 frags for $5 and even won a mystery frag by commenting once on the dark side. To be fair no one was answering the movie in the image and my brain was going to explode if I didn't give the answer. I feel a bit dirty. The free frag makes it better.

It wasn't me! πŸ˜‚ Evie with fritz did the initial scape when George set up the tank. I just decide where the colors go πŸ˜‚
Whoever did it has a very good eye for scaping. Also for the fish living in the tank, its a beautiful tank and very well setup.

I agree! My only input was That I liked arches/caves and that it would primarily be a softy tank and she went to town! She said those caves she made would be perfect for a tang to swim through. She definitely put thought into it! I'm not sure how my giant royal gramma who currently lives there will feel about that though. He's got a bit of an attitude. πŸ˜‚
What was really crazy to me was how fast she put it all together. It would have taken me days! She was done in about a half hour.

Your tank is gorgeous and your progress over the year is fantastic! I'm going to read back through your build thread to see what made you so successful. I really like your scape. I think I have similar shelf rock in my scape, is it Real Reef Rock?

In Lisa's defense, I also waded into the muck to see what Brandon had available in his live sale. I think I made two comments and both were because I just wanted the sale to move along faster; those games are infuriating. Lisa reached out to me and opened up a private conversation so we could at least have some comfort in feeling "dirty" together.

Well... how are you doing this morning?
I added three more goni frags to my order; that's a total of ten new gonis from Brandon in the past week. πŸ₯³
