I just requested a white tail bristletooth tang for my system so hopefully in the next month or two I will be able to show him off but I know how many people are still waiting on theirs from LA so I won't get my hopes up :/

Those are pineapple sponges. Harmless filter feeders. I have tons in my sump and overflow. As far as the Xenia, I don't do anything special with mine other than cutting it back from time to time.

My coral Skelton has been growing further down each head but when should I expect a 3red branch? When they meet?

Looks to be a red Monti Cap. It's a plating coral that will grow relatively quickly, so you will want to have permanent placement for it soon, as it will encrust quickly from my experience. Looks to me like it has some growth already too which is a good sign it's healthy. The white rim going around it is actually new growth. Nice pick up!!

Yep. Montipora capricornis. I have a green one. They like moderate to high lighting. mine seems to be doin well in moderate flow. And the edges turning white means it's growing. Great buy!

Thanks guys, hope it takes off.

My Xenia has been giving me probels. It's been staying drawn back, think it could be to much flow for it?
