Thanks all. In addition to everything I mentioned, I also took their tuxedo urchin, even though I already had one. Do you guy think that two small urchins are too much for my 72 gal?
72 gallon bow front, koralia 1 powerhead, approx 30 gallon sump and separate 20 gallon display refugium, Aqua C protein skimmer, Live rubble filteration, 80 # of LR, and a 4 inch sand bed.

Lucky you! It looks great.

(You reminded me... That's actually how my boss got her oscars! She was in Walmart (she didn't know any better at the time, though I think she does now) looking at fish, and someone brought back two huge oscars and said if Wal-mart wouldn't take them back, they were going to throw them in a river! My boss was horrified and took them on the spot, though she gave one away soon after.)

Very very nice score! What a way to stock a tank!

As for your questions about the brain ID, just my opinion, but...

In the third batch of shots, and that last shot in the fourth batch - I'd say that's a Symphillia, and not a lobo. Google up some pictures if you don't have a coral book and I think you'll see what I mean. Symphillia is one massive colony that doesn't look separate when it retracts. It looks like from the shots that the "lobes" of yours are not separate. If they were, that would indicate a lobophyllia.

In that last shot, I'm thinking like you... that isn't an Acan. It just doesn't have the right look. (Don't know how to describe it.) I'm thinking some type of blastomussa?

In your second batch of shots, that one brain that your clown is hovering over... I'm pretty sure THAT's a lobophyllia.

Very nice!
