Hey guys, it's been awhile since I've posted here. I have a 90g reef tank that's been looking skittle empty and colorless to me coral wise. My current corals are:
-(1) pink tip torch
-(1) regular torch
-(1) rbta anemone
-(1) red rock flower anemone
-a very large Xenia colony
-a decent sized gsp colony
-a green glow cinnamon pally
-purple death pallys
-pocilopora damicornus
-neon green sinulara
-green leather
And that's about it. I have 2 AI sol blue units and the tank is about a year and a half old. I want big pieces with lots of color no preference on sps,lps, or softies. Any will be ok

Are you into SPS at all? A nice blue or yellow acro would do wonders. If you want a fast growing coral, how about a birdsnest or a stylophora? Monti's (digi's or caps) grow quickly too and can add a lot of color.

As for sand sifting gobies, it depends on what you like. I have a pink spotted and like him just fine. But there are days when I see yasha gobies and think I may have made the wrong decision All up to you.

They are a bit harder to keep. How's your water quality?
