Nice! I love my Kenya trees! Just a warning, they can be a little temperamental about changes in their environment. But they are very hardy. I've been told that "If you kill a Kenya tree you probably shouldn't have anything that lives in water." Lol. So it's a great choice.

I know just how you feel living in the mountains and having to drive and drive just to go to a pet store and really never finding that exact coral you want at a fair price
than I found Will and his wife out of Cali they have nice selections and don't cost a arm and a leg
give them a shot you will be glad you did
if they don't have it they will get it for you and they make you feel like one of the family

When you see them on the glass you can remove them by hand, I have used tweezers to get them off my rocks. I only saw a few in my tank about a month after setting it up. They multiply rapidly and you won't know if they are the coral eating variety until It's too late. I played it safe and removed mine.

Edit: mine were white not dark like yours.
