Alright, picked up a few more specimens today. Got a very nice looking hammer coral. It hasn't opened all the way back up yet, but I figure I will give it time. It is near the bottom, but looks as if maybe it is too much flow, will keep an eye on it. The clowns have already taken a liking to it... Also picked up some daisy polyps, and some more zoas. The green zoas aren't too happy about being moved a bit, so not all have opened back up yet. The tank is almost starting to look like a reef tank though... now if I could only find some blue reef chromis... I think that is the next purchase once the biological filter has some time to adjust to my perculas. If anyone has a good source for them, please pass it on. Here are some more pics.

Well, the zoas and daisies are doing great. My LPS corals don't look too hot. I posted a thread regarding my hammer not opening... trying a few different things so hopefully I can turn the corner on that.

I am also have what appears to be pretty good explosion of coraline growth. It is appearing in little dots all over my LR. I thought maybe it was cyano but it is not slimy at all, and does not come off when I wave my hand over it or even scrape it with my thumb nail. Is this normally how coraline starts to grow? In hundreds of little dots?

I can never get the purple coralline But I have the neon green stuff and it starts in little white specs on the rock.. kinda looks like little eggs.

I don't know why your stuff isn't opening up. I've never purchased a coral that didn't open up the first day I've had it (must be lucky).
