Yeah, I started everything with a 2-gal hex tank. One month later it was a 10-gal, and 2 months after that a 55-gal. I'm back down to the 10-gal now because of space/money, though. :bawl:

Polyp Coral Frag needs Identification

Got this little coral frag from the LFS the other day, and I'd like to identify it.
