Congrats on your new coral! Is it an SPS?

LOL Ironically, the 60g build was gonna be a frag tank, 24 X 24 X 12 BUT the lfs guy talked me out of it. This way I can keep fish too.

Yep, redsea, thats supposedly an easy SPS to keep. We shall see.

Great thanks, I love the "easy" word, perfect for me, lol. I like the Purple Sylophora (I am sure I spelt that wrong) too.

You are close, lol. stylophora i believe. But then again I could be wrong too. lol I picked the stylo up for $20 a month or two ago and when i first got it, it dropped down into a field of palythoas. I thought it was dead for sure, the tips lost all the polyps and it looked really bad. But a bit of time under the lights and it's recovered nicely. I recommend them if you want to try sps out. The monti caps are probably the fastest grower and easiest, at least as far as my experience goes. I'm just dabbling in sps, I like them ok but not nuts for them like some people are.

Thanks, I will definitely try one out (if I do decide to make my 125g a Reef again after hypo (I just don't know what to do, lol, I don't think my 55g lights are good enough for one.)

LOL. You jinxed me dude. lol I just took out the camera and took 2 shots of the engineer goby in the 20g and was gonna go from tank to tank AND out of battery. lol It's charging now so I'll get some of the fish and coral up hopefully before my blues go off.

I love the interest you take in everyones tanks! It's so encouraging!
