Besides wanting to see the new corals, whats the update on this upcoming last of the last last new tanks? Is there a 200 coming your way or not?

In terms of lighting, go with how Kio hung her new lights. I'm actually realy jealous of it. My radions are hanging...but they are far from straight. If I could build a canopy I would totally hook it up like she did and maybe rubberize or seal the metal L brackets holding up the lights.

I never heard back from the people with the 180g RR tank and the ones for the 275g tank are too firm on their price. :-( I am still looking for an upgrade for this tank though, on active search duty. lol

Here are some shots of the new corals as well as one of the watchman out and one of the lawnmower blenny just chilling on the GSP rock.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Yep, thats the cephastrea. (sp) It's a small one but it should grow.

Nice stuff Carey!
$25 for that Favia is insane!!!
That Cephastrea will grow quickly, mine spreads just as fast as Red Cap.
Good luck with them.

Thanks guys.

I hope I do better with this one than the last one I had. That one got kinda burned up under the new leds and the fish covered it with sand so it didn;t stand a chance. :-(

I almost bought a 6-8 inch cephastrea today too, but it wasnt as colorful as the one I did get. It;s also a tyree if that makes any difference. The "specialty" names and stuff usually dont get me but this new LFS had all that "name brand" stuff. All I know is it was pretty and cheap so I'm good to go. lol

I have never seen anything like that cephastrea before. Not even on LA. Are they hard to care for? So cool looking, like little volcanos. While I'm on my court trip to Baltimore on Monday, I'm hoping to come home with something cool like that.

From my limited knowledge of them, medium light and flow. I had the last one on the sandbed and it did fine until I moved it to the 60g. Come to think of it, I don't recall having seen them at LA either. I run into them all the time at local stores. A little on the pricey side but something different than the usual run of the mill coral so I figured why not? lol
