Here's my score from today. $30 for one green, one red millepora, two green bay packers zoa frags, and a chunk of orange monti. I'm really happy. These were just test pieces to see how things work out. They all opened within minutes of getting put in the tank. I left the zoas on plugs so that I could move them easily if neded. I couldn't put the plugs where I wanted to place the millepora frags, so I just glued them to the rock.

Agree with the purple, although they don't seem to be quite as hardy as the regular. Sending you a link on a building a mesh top as well via PM.

Awesome, thanks for the link.


How about some help identifying this stuff? It just came up all of a sudden the other day. I removed most of it with a mag float, thinking that might have been a bad move now. It doesn't look like any hair algae I've seen, it's almost like feather duster sized whatevers, not like hair. It's everywhere, glass, rock, magfloat. Sigh.

Looks like one of the pain in the rear green algae types - do you have any hermit crabs in your tank? Sometimes they help control this type.
