Mmmm.... ok- this is definitely an aquired taste I guess. I personally liked it. Here is what I added to the recipe below:
1 package prosciutto (like 3 oz) torn into pieces
1 package tomato/basil feta cheese
and instead of the mozzarella, I used shredded 4 flavor mexican style cheese.
and instead of just diced tomatoes, I used garlic and olive oil diced tomatoes.
Turned out good, has a very italian flavoring to it. Served it with mashed potatoes of course!

Yesterday, a few of the committee members of the club and myself, visited with Aquatic Arts, in Ocala.
I brought home a very nice toadstool leather. (Thanks guys!)
And have positioned it to the left of my tank.
So far it is doing very well.
I am very pleased with the size of this coral.

Also, I just found out tonight that I won a free frag rack compliments of Captain Salty's of Ocala- Thanks! I will definitely put it to good use!

Today, I added a baby orange Florida Ricordea and a black sea hare to the main tank.
We picked up a long tentacle green anemone for the biocube, let's see if momma & pappa clowns will find it and host!
Monti (my haddoni) is getting exceptionally large! Very healthy. I have increased his feedings, and he definitely lets me know when he is hungry- reaches out for lunch! lol

I also started dosing vodka in the main tank only. As an experiment on nitrates. Right now, (since I feed a bit heavy for all the corals,inverts,fish,etc)- I stay between .3 and .4 - I am wanting to drop down to 0. So for those that have not tried this technique yet, stay tuned, I will give updates. For those that have and do use vodka or vodka/vinegar dosing methods- drop me a line! I would love to hear your feedback on how you think the results came out.

Well... goodnight everyone. I wish you all a very Happy Memorial Day weekend. Be Safe!

Ok, all, I've gotten several emails regarding my Etsy shop....I will be opening it up for orders shortly. I am in the process of making some more soaps, and lip balm. Will post a heads up when it is stocked up again.

Today was scheduled for a committee meeting - for our Reef Club.
We covered several topics, to be discussed further in detail at our next couple of meetings.
Everything is looking great - we have a nice build up of members-to-be so far.
Our next meeting is scheduled to be at Ian's home- again, if you wish to get further information, please jump onto our forum:
and look under Kingnai's post. He has a nice DIY project he will be demonstrating...but I'm not gonna tell ya what it is.....
you have to go to the forum to find out!
Again, as always, if anyone in the area is interested, please feel free to come visit and join our club.
We'd love to have you!

I am in the process of trying to catch a few fish from my these little buggers know I am wanting them out and they are making it very hard. These are sneaky sneaky fish!
I will be posting between fish catching, so feel free to comment as usual- and I will get right back to you!

I went to one of the LFS today, to pick up a green bubble tip anemone, for my clowns, BUT the silly little thing would not be bought! He pulled himself so far into the rock, that (Connor) the fish guy said he would try while I was at the meeting....but no luck- still hiding in the rock. So I moved my small pearl white bubble tip to the biocube in the bedroom, and we will see if the clowns like it.

I am in the process also of fragging out some more coral. I will post photos of these when they have been given ample time to attach themselves to the plugs/rocks - and ready to deliver or ship.
All prices will be stated with each photo- so if you have any questions, you know I am only an email away.

I wish everyone a great evening, I am getting to all my TwitterMoms, promise! I will be on there tomorrow, to play catch up again. Thanks for following and I will see you tomorrow!
