jdsabin1- thanks for the pics... those are really nice! Do you happen to ship? lol
Python- i saw you were bringing some to the swap, but i wasn't going, so, didn't see much point in asking anyway plus, you kept saying that you wanted something good for the frags and i don't have much to offer, but then again, i don't know what you'r lookin for.
oceanarus- thanks for the growth pics, thats cool. I think i'm going to make a big growth chart or something and keep track of how much it grows.
ifrag- are yours more orange or red arround the outer edges?
Thanks everyone! I know their are more pics out their!

Here is an up to date picture of it, it started out 8 months ago as a 4 polyp frag, and now has at least 40.

Well, there is that. I am coming into a perfect frag grow-out setup that I should have ready to "grow" in the next month, but certainly by Christmas. One of my main frag goals will be reef plugs of the five blasto merletti colors I have now. By summer, you'll want to see me at a swap. I'll have just what you are looking for.

Oh, I've got a couple shots to contribute. I too love the blastos! I have two b. wellsi variants, and one b meletti. I keep them in the frag tank in the low current, and under the dim 20 k. They seem happiest there, not to mention they're a whole tank away from the greedy mysis snatching jaws of my beloved porc. I spot feed everyday, so I kinda can't keep them in the same tank with Hoss.

You'll have to forgive the picture quality on a couple of these, I'm not much for photography, and the 20 K is not very conducive to digital photography.

Is it necessary to spot feed blastos? How often? With what?
