Wow that's really sweet ...



thanks its hard to get a pic of with the light so close to the tree top but there are over 100 frags glued to about 10-15lbs of rock. i drilled the rock and mounted it on pvc structure to get the tree look.


there is literally not 1 sq/inch of rock space to glue frags, im currently glueing frags over frags and trimming as necessary.

im using the ecotech coral glue, so when it comes time for prunning i just snap the glue frag the piece and re-apply:)

the sand bed is actually tempered glass pieces with the fine pieces removed for a modern look:)

tank is 18 x 18 x 18 and is plumbed through the wall behind it to its own fish room:)

well a short while ago my beautiful aussie elegance outgrew my home for it , i grew this coral from 3" to 16" and around 25 mths


i have given him a new home with a friend and went and got myself a new one , after qt passed it was added to the tree top bottom.


here are 2 excellent reads on elegance , its sad what we have done to this coral and where it stands today:(
