thanks, the gargonian have been moved to a higher flow area in that last shot of them and they have great polyp extention now, and the GSP have been moved to the sandbed on a rock that i want them to blanket. i was thinking of getting them to cover the back glass... a wall of green waving in the flow??? what do you think?

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea...

ive thought the same thing before as i have 2 different color variations of GSP myself.
if you do it please post progress pictures lol.

the only down fall i could think of would be that it eventually creeped onto the sides and finally cover the front...you wouldnt see much in the tank

I moved the Purple Monit-cap and mounted it to a rock close the where some of my zoas are.



and here's a better shot of my Thick Branch peach Birdsnest (seriatopora stellata) and where it RTN'd. you can see the polyp extention so it looks a bit healthier


Then i noticed my Eklhorn Montipora is doing something wierd it's kinda going white on the ends. any thoughts?

ive heard in a fragging seminar that if you mount frags laying down instead of like trees you will see better growth as there are more locations for new branches to extend. idk how true this is as ive never kept SPS but i think its worth a shot.

I just read on Liveaquaria that the faster growning corals like this one will turn white on the ends and it's normal. I'm not too worried, but i am considering fraging it and bank it with a club member just incase i have an issue...

i missed it sorry, and i've seen a tank with the entire top of GSP so i think i can keep it under control.. it'll be a lot of fragging in the end, but i think it'll look good and i will post pics of it8)

all i have to say is, once you go SPS there's not turning back.
