I'd kill for that alien eye, I'm falling in love with chalices, of course they're the most expensive thing in the market right now lol.

Where did you say you got that alien eye? And has it grown for you?

Yes your Alien Eye looks beautiful. I wish mine had your pop. Mine has grown but I think it looked better before it did lol.

First pick is in June when I got it. Second pic is from today

I have been contemplating fragging it.

The number of polyps doubled. I think that is pretty good!

My Martian chalice .., as I like to call it ,..seems to be about the same size and color as when I got it , however a few weeks back I noticed that a hammer coral that was next to it was sending out long sweeper arms and seemingly stinging it towards the bottom,.... The bottom part of the Martian is beaten up pretty badly in that area,..I moved the Martian a couple of inches away and hopefully it'll heal itself in time.
Color wise it's as bright and perky as when I got it,... I also have a smaller one but it was never as bright and perky as the bigger one. The last time I tried to acquire another one they weren't available at that time nor have I've seen any others for sale ,maybe it's a summer thing?
Thank you everyone for all the nice comments regarding the corals,... Not everything I put into my tank makes it but these have endured so far despite me and I'm quite happy for that.

That's great! It's funny how sometimes we may not think we see growth because we are the caretakers observing constantly. My wife will look at a coral and say its so much bigger and I see only minimal growth until I go back and look at pictures

Bottom of my mix barrel after about a hundred pounds of Reef Crystals. You can see my confusion. If anyone figures this out please post it.

It seems alien eye caps are kind of scarce right now.
