When is the grand opening of your LFS? I know you have more then my LFS has..

Colt coral great looking and easy to grow and you get the nice flowing motion,
Sinularia... same as colt
I did nto see grreen star polyps.. easy low light and will grow across the SB... looks like grass... very cool..

I got 2 GSP frags from ellisz and a approx 5x9" piece from somewhere else. I also have a Sinularia. I already have a colt on my next order. I am waiting on a nice true red flowerpot before it is sent though. Thanks for the suggestions. I fixed my list.

I want some blasto or acans. Might try some other acros. I love my blue tort. I added a small gigas clam tonight. It has been too long since I added anything

If you were closer, I have a 5-6" across yellow scroll that is too big for my tank. Oh, do you have any monti caps? I have a orange that is awesome and a green/purple rim that is growing well.

I have been looking at the blasto also. I also want some more acros. What are their requirements? Hold on to the scroll and others for about 90 days and it will be warming up here. Everything I got from you is still doing great.

Is there a secret to keeping the color vivid with the acros? Liveaquaria has brown ones that have "changed over time". They suggest they will become colorful again in the right tank setting.

There is a LFS here that has brown acro sales. They are usually cheap and will typically color up. I think it is just because the light they have in their acro tank is old and not really enough to support them well enough.

One brown acro I bought was a milepora and ended up with long green polyps with pinkish tips. Another one turned a light purple with dark purple tips I got them for $25 each and a typical acro of that size runs $55 here.

It is a gamble though. I might have to check liveaquaria out

I just read my earlier post and relized it did not say what I meant to say.
What are the feeding, light and flow requirements of blasto?
