Anthia, possibly a squareback?

Wow, that Julian person is popular. Rick, the owner of Rick's Fish and Pet in Frederick, MD, has been sales talking me into that book and he said Julian is his personal friend. He wants me to pre-order from him (Rick), and I will get an autographed copy of the book by Julian. I mean, I love reef tanks. But I don't really feel any greatness to getting Julian's autograph. Others, however, are siked about that.

You got that right.

Why don't you try bubble coral or green polyps? Possibly colorful zoos and mushrooms perhaps?

With that much lighting, you can get anything. And if you have a good filter, you may eventually end up getting addicted to SPS.

Good luck and heed our warning. The purchasing/trading of corals is addicting.

I know you have already brought the flower pot back but had to chime in.
I got suckered into a white one and it was dead inside 4 weeks.

Tried everything. People who sell these I enjoy calling them out! Just leave them alone and aqua culture something else!!!
