No it's just a GSP frag I set there on a broken powerhead cover lol. That & the Kenya tree basically grow like weeds. I haves one of the Kenya in the 55 gal with a freshwater LED light growing fine but I haven't tried the GSP there yet. That will be my next experiment I think.

That's why I can't wait to rid my tank of some of these softies. Overwhelm things. Lps can be so much cooler.

What kind of acro? That is a nice looking candy cane. It is an odd coral IMO. When I started I tried to keep 3 of them since they were beginner coral. I killed almost all of them. The blue one in my tank was dead when Moved it over and them it took off. As it took off, the one right beside it continued to waste away. A good example of how sometimes our efforts with things can't explain reasons of flourishing or demise.

Honestly not sure. Maybe a Cerealis or a Valida? Was just listed as "assorted Acro".

In my DT I have Two colonies of candy cane (both green) and they have been very hardy.

Pic of the Anthelia I picked up also today now that its starting to open. Also grabbed a Tomoni Tang for the tank, and a Royal Gramma (for the 55). Fragged some of my pieces from the DT including Spongnodes, a green Monti Cap, more Birdsnest, GSP, purple Monti Cap, and an unidentified softie I've had for a year or so that encrusts over everything lol. Also pictured a frag off my tricolored Acro I cut last weekend.

Hi Keith. I just read through this whole thread. Bunch of pages but it was worth it. Your frag tank looks great. I'm glad everything worked out for you with the build and the paperwork for your business. Even though I am located in NY - would love to one day try and get a hold of one of your items - to help out a fellow forum member. Thanks for your inspiration.

Tommy, first off thank you for your interest and investing your time to read through everything! Thanks also for the kind words and encouragement. It has been full of ups and downs that's for sure lol.

I will be ready to sell frags soon so I will definitely let you know! Need to send some of these guys to the East Coast!

Thanks for reading! That's like a chapter in a book to get through, lol. I am in San Jose, Ca. For those who don't know the area that's about 30 miles south if San Francisco.

Cut the green Monti cap twice this week only to lose both chips either from a snail, urchin, or flow. Cut it again tonight in hopes this one doesn't get pulled off the plug again lol. Cut another of my Purple tip tricolored Acro, purple Monti cap, meteor shower, and more of my birdsnest (this thing grows like a weed). Broke my large bone cutters .

So website is up and running. Nothing special right now as I'm doing it myself and its something completely new to me. Don't have anything listed to sell on my website yet as I haven't ventured into the whole shipping part of it yet. Selling local for now and will move to Internet sales shortly.

Having my first order from a wholesaler I haven't used before showing up tomorrow along with my local wholesaler shipment coming Wednesday. Building up my stock for now!
