Maybe because of the powerful sweepers that they harness! Here's mine that I've had forever, I love it.

They are awesome corals! I had never seen one like this before and that is why I had to have it!!!

Nice acros man! Yea, those plugs are definitely keepers! I'm actually keeping the plug on my new red digitata because it was mostly encrusted too. No biggie, wont see them after long.

Well I'm definitely jealous! Just gotta keep those guys away from other prized corals, they are a powerhouse.

I had a green Galaxea in my 120 and it got pretty big. It was all alone on the sandbed and looked awesome in the flow.

Well the lights are dimming now for the night but both corals have polyp extension. I'm pleased with that for sure!

the Galaxea looks pretty good though not fully extended. Tomorrow I expect they will look great!

Hi Ziggy! I remember your old tank, and just found your new build thread! I can't wait to begin following again! I know I am very late, but welcome back. I love that trio of PJ Cardinals too!
