Everything is looking good man!

For future reference on mushrooms they tend to like the lower light. If they shrivel up try to get them into some shade. If they're standing up they want more light. Usually they aren't picky though and will adjust wherever you put them!

So I'm picking up a good size frag of waving hand and another piece of frogspawn, 2 heads for $45 tomorrow. I've heard that waving hand can spread fast. Any tips? I really like the motion of this coral and figure under medium flow should do fine with little spreading.

Pick these up today

All of them or $80.

Pretty sure they're joker zoas and red zoas. Along with a double headed frogspawn and a small football size waving hand w/rock. Already split it into two softball size pieces.

Ok did a little research and I don't think those are joker zoas. I think they are green bay packers. What do you all think?

anything the waving hand touches it will move a piece to. They spread very fast.

Ugh! So all has been good in my tank until I came home today. Noticed my sand had a brown tint to it and my rock as well. Why? I haven't really done anything drastic. One new fish and a few corals. Lights run the same except I changed one bulb out.

IMO the waving hand doesn't move too fast. Not if you keep up with your tank. I haven't had to remove any yet.
