If you look through the pics in posts about 98-101 there are a bunch of current pics. The ORA was golf ball size in May, now I would say it's softball size.

The Valida is hard to see because of Anthelia around it, but it's got about 3-4 fingers about 3-4" long.

Rose Mill. is 2 small sections about 1cm and 3cm long (slow growers)

Sun Polyp is about 1" tall and round

Candy Cane is about the size of a Kiwi

Trumpet has about 7 heads, each about 1" in diameter

Red Caps vary from 1 sq in to about 6 sq in. I would say a total of about 10-14 sq in worth.

Zoas range from colonies of 6 or so head to the larger one which is probably pushing 100.

I forgot about a War coral, golf ball size and spreading

Also an Acan...crud man! I just no realized that I haven't seen the acan in quite a while!!! It must have fallen into the back. DANG IT!

I fragged a bunch of Anthelia and found the Acan, surprisingly it's doing just fine after 2 months face down in the sand.

Got 4 peppermint shrimp to help battle the Aptasia. They've already eliminated a couple of them, even though you can't see them at all - those guys are really good at hiding!

I noticed a few things in the tank and started a couple ID/help threads:
