The top pic is a torch. The bottom is a frogspawn.

I've got 2 duncans in there, now, too..Just waiting on a minor green cyano outbreak to clear up and then I'll post pictures of those.

After this, I think I'm going to round it out with a blasto and call it a day in this tank.

Here are the two duncans. The double is actually a triple, the third head is hiding in the back

I love torch coral. I've seen all kinds and they're all pretty.

Besides a little nuisance algae in spots, the tank is coming along nicely.

Wish I could get my T5I to settings like that! I always get particles from the glass and it frustrates me!

For a cell phone camera, and one that's 2 years old at that, it does a pretty good job.

Now to get rid of that nuisance algae. All my params are where they should be, though phosphates are at 0.02 and my alk was a little low, right around 6.8. I don't want to have to dose, esp since it's such a small tank, so I'm going to see how it trends before doing anything.
