I agree with what Mike wrote. What exactly is the problem with them?

I agree, I think they are a beautiful addition to the reef

They are nice but getting to be a little too much..It is a nice gesture but I dont have the patience to rearrange my aquarium to send them...I will just have to cope with them.

That is actually live rock. A buddy of mine picked it up for me at a store in Atlanta. I unfortunately can't remember where it came from.

its coraline algea...give it time and if your tank is good you will grow some. it also comes in other colors like pink and green, but purple is the prettiest.

Are you dosing your tank with B-Ionic?

Most 2 parts are the same type of thing. B Ionic has just seemed to really work well. Typically one part is ALK and the other is the CA. Once you see a bit of coraline start, scrape it lightly with a stiff toothbrush. It will release spores and quickly reproduce. Coraline actually prefers under 10K lighting and can recess in higher K settings. Many SPS reefers can't get it to grow in their tanks due to the intense lighting.
