Thanks, my camera stinks(or so i thought) but was messing around tonight and found a setting that lets me take much better pics than i used to get.

The orange is on a v shaped tonga branch i wedged at the top of my lr. Heres a older pic where you can see it at the top right.

Thanks for the compliment Manny! Yeah, its a long way from when i was asking your advice about sumps,lol.

Actually, i'm probably gonna cut back on my sps and get rid of some to make room for more lps. I like the sps but with only 150w's, some of them dont keep their color for me unless they are in the perfect spot.

The orange cap looks nice, but you may want to consider moving it. They grow like weeds and it will shade every thing near it.

Gasman- if you have some small chalices or frags of them, i'll definitely trade you some nice acro's i want to get rid of for them.


Wazzel- that probably will become a problem in the future but not for a while hopefully. The pic is deceiving and the orange cap actually has a pretty good amount of room to grow before it shades any other corals. I would probably just frag the parts that are shading when that happens but i figure i have at least a few months before i have to worry.

It definitely grows like a weed! When i 1st glued it down, there was about a 2 inch gap between it's back and the tonga branch. I would look and you could literally see it getting closer every few days. I switched from 10k's to 14k's recently though so my growth will probably slow down.

Heres one more. The base was brown with purple polyps but over the last 6 weeks, the new growth base is greenish as you can see in the pic:confused:

Anyone know what kind it is?

I am a big monti fan so thanks for sharing. The tank is looking good. Can't wait to see it in another year after things grow out.

I love the pokerstar

If you decide to sell some of your frags, or trade even for some other nice monti's, let me know

how high up is your superman?

Its all the way at the top, only a few inches from the waterline. If you look at the pic of the middle of my tank, you can see it in the upper lefthand corner.

Just got this one. It is the deepest, nicest purple. Can't get a pic that even remotely captures the color but it's my favorite!
