Just stunning reef! Looks like it's 2 years or more even though it's pretty new. What is that turquoise type montipora in the left back corner?

Thank you! I love it, I was a little skeptical of how I would like SW when I made the jump but it's turned out to be infinitely better than I thought.

The monti is just your basic green monti. Since I got the LEDs the color on it has exploded and it's twice as fleshy as I've ever seen it.

We'll I really enjoy FW, but I have to admit I like SW better.

I ended up rescaping again (I know, I know). I am actually really liking this scape, it gives me quite a bit more flexibility in coral placements. I also snagged a nifty frag trees hitch is making it really easy to introduce new frags and possibly grow some others. Right now the tree is holding four new Acan frags that I got today.

Since I did the re-scape my Alk has dropped a full point and my Ca dropped almost 100 ppm. Guess I'm back to a dosing regimen.

I really like your new scape and even more that frag tree. I've never seen one like it! Where did you find it at?
