They are just so awesome, I can't decide if I like the hammer, torch or frogspawn the best, but I like my flowy corals that's for sure.
I saw a picture where a guy glued different green and red monti onto a plate and when it grew it was sooo cool! But ya, I agree about flowy corals being most interesting

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

So today i added a green birdsnest coral and a Mccoskers wrasse. Coral seems to be doing good so far. The fish was acclimated for 2 1/2 hours and swam around for probably 25 minutes once put in the tank but now its just staying in a small cave. I'm not to worried yet but ill keep a close eye

Nice nano, I am building a 55g reef and can't wait to start adding corals. That green and red monti looks very cool, thanks for posting that link.
