Thanks guys. He came with with the 125 I bought and decided to add him to this tank instead of the 125 which is going to be FOWLR. I think I made a good choice. Unfortunately she is all pods all the way.

Can anyone help with a coral ID. This is one that came with that same tank.

do you have a closer pic?

how is the humidity in your house with all these large tanks you have? do you see a big difference in how much your furnace or AC run?

The 180 has a full glass lid because of the jawfish and wrasse. Then at my house the other tanks are a 55 gal and just started a 6 gallon chi over the weekend. The 125 is at my gf house and the 29 isn't back up yet. And both the bigger tanks at my house got set up before I even moved in so hard to compare. But I don't notice it being any more humid than Indiana normally is in the summer.

Some of my corals look like the color is fading. Im curious what causes this so I know what it is I specifically need to check. Other than losing some color (especially my meat coral) they all look great and most of them seem to be growing quite a bit.

Thanks in advance

were the lamps new when you put them on or had you bought a used fixture?

The new bulbs could be bleaching your corals. You might want to cut back on the photo period.
