Well, whadda ya know

A few weeks ago while I was removing my Flameback angel from my reef (decided it wanted to eat my corals) I accidentally broke the tip off of one of my staghorn acroporas.

The tip fell behind the rockwork and I figured it was lost, or one day I would see it growing from the back of the aquarium. Well I was looking at the tank today and guess what I found?

It was in the front of the aquarium next to one of my Montipora digitatas. The polyps are out and it seems to have recovered from the break nicely. Not sure how it ended up front, probably drug there by a hermit, trying to decide the best thing to do with it. It is about 1/4" in length and less in width. Not sure what or where to mount it to.[/img]

Mount it next to the original to make a double - like a V. As it grows it will be a more pleasing coral starting from a double base. That is how I mounted my my new digitata frags per the advice of the original owner.

Alright dude.....your holding out!! I want to see some pics in the gallery toot sweet

That is something I have considered. I mounted the acro at an angle to promote branching, but it isn't really working with that particular acro, it's funny cause my millipora has about 4 new branches on it and it hasn't been in there nearly as long.
