It's very cool, they opened up! I'm going to move them to give them a bit more flow though.

My anemone is moving himself lol.. can't wait to see where he settles!

This is so awesome, i've been waiting for this for so long.

What other corals have you been considering for this tank? I would recommend ricordea, colt, and maybe some Xenia

Haven't gotten that far Greenturtle. I will look at those for sure. The guy at the LFS kept saying that the coral I picked up was a "waving hand xenia" although the glass said something different.

Here's some pictures! (they are small pieces) If anyone could help me identify their real names that would be awesome!

anemone (what kind?)


What I think is the waving hand xenia




green star polyps


Can't seem to do them justice with the camera.

Condylactus Anemone (Condylactis gigantea) or a Long Tentacle Anemone (Macrodactyla doreensis) for the first pic maybe?

Ime the gsp can take their time opening up. It's normal for most corals.

I'm pretty sure it's not a long tentacle, but it is likely a condy. LTs' tentacles aren't normally so close together.
