I just finished acclimating my new corals ,..and although they're in the tank now, they've just started to open up ,..the multi headed torch coral ( if you look closely enough) you'll see a little opening on the very bottom which houses a rather nice looking feather duster which has been coming out like a mad man filtering the water,..a nice little addition I'd say.,also the multi headed hammer and the two headed bubble coral are slowly opening up also.
I'll take some pictures tomorrow or whenever they fully open,..but other than that ,all's well!

Those are some great buys! The feather duster will grow big eventually, so you definitely lucked out with a pretty one, a few of mine have doubled in size since they were added.

Its now 24 hours since I've introduced the new batch of corals... All look ok except foe the hammer which seems to be still trying to open up... I remember that my last hammer took a couple of days to really get going fully.., ill give the new hammer another 24 hours or so to open up and if it hasn't by then., than ill move it to a different location and maybe that'll be the key.
Fingers crossed!

Sounds good, if it doesnt open, maybe less flow? Mine likes the lowest amount possible.

I got it pretty close to another hammer thats been going strong for about a year or so... I think it'll be ok there.(?).... It's looking a little better today but ill keep an eye on it.... My bubble magus skimmer started acting a little weird the last couple of days and started filling the skimmer section of my sump with a zillion micro bubbles so after work today i pulled it out of the sump and cleaned it inside and out and found that its air hose was clogged and was forcing bubbles out somewhere else..., now she's working perfectly again thank goodness!!!
I Took a picture of the little feather duster (?) that was living underneath my new torch coral.. Maybe someone could further id it but feather duster or not it's pretty cool

Just a tube worm. Harmless unless it starts to irritate the coral.

I haven't had any fish eat them, and they don't bother my corals. Two of my Acro's encrusted over them! And to the placement of the coral, if you have a coral that has done well in the same place for a year, it will be fine... As long as it isn't too different of a species. It might just take a little longer to acclimate.

All looks good Dary. Keep them going strong, how long have you had the tank now since your first coral was put in?
