I have got to say that your tank is looking good. I have been reading your thread the entire time.

Thanks so much! I have a lot more to do with it but Itll be nice once it's done. I need to put in a sump first so I can get rid of all the crappy filtration first :/

That's an acropora. Not sure about the species yet because it's so small. It's not looking so good in that picture but I fragged it and it's great now. Still not branching though.

My montipora hasn't grown out at all, but it is encrusting the frag slowly. Is this normal for them?
