Anyone else have cyphastrea

I have a good sized cyphastrea japonica encrusted all over my one rock and this stuff seriously grows like a weed, like over 1.5 inches a month or so it seems. Here's a picture of it, anyone else see crazy growth from theirs.

Definitely a cool coral, it has a blue base with bright greenish blue polyps and encrusts the rock.

Nice! I may have to make a trip to That Fish Place soon and see if they have any, I need an 18 watt pc bulb for a planted tank I have and have only been able to find them there so the trip out is now an "absolute necessity"

At 55 miles away it's close enough to enjoy but far enough to not go completely broke

Yep I'm about 80 away so it's a little drive but not bad. It's enough to keep me from going there a lot.
