Agreed. Duncanís are also fantastic beginner corals as far as lps go. Same with calustrea trumpet corals.

Duncan and montipora are what I always suggest for starters, especially when someone isn't at ease with ordering online. Both of these are as hardy as they come. I've had both recover from things nothing else in my systems have.
That and every tank has either a duncan or an orange monti in it.

Yeah I was looking at the Duncanís as well. Iíll have to hold off on ordering right now since there has been a red alert warning due to snow here. Canít see any deliveries making it in decent time.

I ended up putting my Fish into my display. I canít make any ro water due to my outside tap being frozen. Iíll hopefully have enough for top up until the weather gets better but I couldnít get enough to keep up with water changes. They both seem to be doing fine. The goby has been hard at it and my sand is now spotless!

I didnít think the video worked. I canít view it.

Thanks. Slowly getting there but still facing this algae issue. I emailed a pic to reefcleaners.com and he doesnít think it is dinos either so that a plus. Just need to keep up with water changes. Hopefully my tap is unfrozen after work so I can start making ro water again

Hopefully things are thawed out for you. For the record, I can see the video.

Yeah hopefully.

Fish seem happy. The gramma is coming out of his shell and jumping from cave to cave. Must be lookin for the best view. Both are eating although I havenít seen the gramma eating the masstick yet. I think when they were in the qt he waited until Neil (diamond goby) was eating from the lump and catching any parts that came loose from it. Iíve tried sticking it to rock beside his usual hiding holes but havenít seen him go for it yet.

Hopefully it will be a pair of clowns next but only a pair that has been in a tank together. Donít want a repeat of last time
