Corals, Corals, and more Corals

Since I have not posted in some time I am opening my first thread with some pics of some of the new corals I have been trading for. I am a bit of a collector of corals and am always trying to acquire more. I have something of a bank in my home.

Some really nice zoanthids and palythoas I have received in the last month.
Purple hornets
Witches Brew
Purple People Eaters
And NO I do not make up all these crazy names,some one else out there does and people eat it up.

These corals are not appealing enough, no love for the SPS and Zoanthids? How about some LPS.
My favorite Platygyra "closed Brain Coral"

A two tone variety with blue valleys.

This red one is a little dusted from the debree I stir up to help feed some of the corals but you get the picture.

Awesome corals, keep the pics coming! :)

540L/140G - 'Tidal Jungle' (Crabs) | 254L/67g - 'Backwater Pool' (Fish/Snails) | 96L/25G - ''Twisted Minds" (Fish/Snails)

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.

Glad there is still at least a few salt water reefers on the forum. I will see about some other pics from my tanks here after work. Maybe a pic of the tank I originaly posted here a few years ago.

I do also like the soft corals and as usual there is no shortage of those. Here is a purple base orange tipped ricordea yuma.

OH NO! I was going to post more pics but some of the previous ones have been moved. I did not know photobucket would not apply the move here. I will have to see about a way around this. Hmmmm?
