Always heard great things about sea swirls too.

Not exactly sure how they get the blue coloration but the Phantom clownfish are absolutely stunning to see in person.

Its simply awe inspiring to see and learn so much from the build.

Well, I am very fortunate to have one of your named acropora from Big E - AV99's blueberry cheesecake acropora . Just a little frag for only a week old and waiting to color up . Any tips ??

Regards,
Abhishek

That blue coloration on your clowns is definitely unique. Be sure to make a video of them when you get a chance. I've never even heard of blue on a clownfish before.

Thank you for the amazing compliment, Abhishek. The AV99 Blueberry Cheesecake was one of my favorites from my last reef project years ago. It did not survive the move to the new house and reminds me of the Orange passion. Like most sticks, it does best in higher light with lots of indirect flow.

I have always wanted a bonded pair of show quality Phantoms but never seen them with beautiful blue markings before. I was told by the vendor that they would not normally sell a large bonded pair like this as they would use them for brood stock to spawn eggs. I will be sure to post pictures and possibly a video of the pair in the future. Stay tuned.

**Update** Perhaps the single most important piece of equipment for long-term stability of a large reef system, in my opinion, to be installed soon. It looks like I will be doing some landscape work this weekend (ie, removal of boxwood shrubs) before my electrician returns to complete this phase of my build thread for the direct benefit of my new reef project. Up next will be the installation of the whole house [natural gas] generator.

That is awesome. I have been shopping around. Will 22 k run your house or just your tank? I was told that I needed at least 50 k. Difference in price is insane :-(
