The acans are a real nice addition.The coral looks a bit like the purple star polyps, if you need some purple pavona I can send you some no prob.

I'm not sure, you sent these to me on two different pieces a while back and classified them as purple pavona. I don't remember you sending purple star polyps though.

I did some checking and they kinda look like both except these don't have the white centers like the purple star polyps.

I have a lot of growth on my circ pumps, but not much on the glass yet.

I'm trying to decide on a good ATI bulb combo right now, I'm thinking probably the ATI purple and the ATI blue special w/ the 2x acintics I already have.

Not sure yet though.

Watermelon Zoas (New)



Crayola Palys (New)



Candy Apple Zoas (New(ish))



Dragon Eye's



And, by far my favorite coral in the aquarium, the Yuma Ricordea I got from Bert a long time ago.



---

All of the corals above (except for one) were purchased from badxgillen (a well known reefer here). I highly recommend him for corals and he's always sent me top notch corals!

Enjoy!

I am glad you really like those polyps,I will be posting more in the DBTC soon.

Remember that the coral I have given you,once grown out, has to be given to another salt water hobbyist capable of caring for it.

You will have quite the zoa garden going on here soon,they all look like they are adjusting just fine and going to start growing for you soon.

Hopefully it'll split up soon so I can go ahead and get it over to another reefer.

I decided to swap over and go full ATI. I went with 2x true blues and 2x purple plus, not sure if I want to swap out the true blue in the future for a coral plus or not, but we'll see.

I'll get some new photos up soon!

Here's a photo of the new lights.

Unfortunately I had to take it with my phone camera, so it's pretty grainy.

SO BRIGHT! I am a big fan of 50\50 but it is hard to deny that a little extra blue does not look good on the corals. I still see alot of open sand bed there.
