    Good! I hope it does well. When some of the others drop babies, I will make sure you get some. Where do you have your chalice in your tank. Right now mine is on the frag rack and it looks good, but I think it's in too high of flow and light. I have got to find a spot on the rockwork for it.

    On the right edge, maybe halfwayish ... just found a rock it would stay on. It’s recedding a bit around the cut edges and I’m not sure if it’s just because it’s where it was cut and I’ll have some loss or if it needs a different spot. I’m watching it.

    I’ve got 2 toadstools, purple and bright green, that green leather from the July meeting, purple cabbage with green polyps and something else ... devils hand maybe? When any of those start having babies or growing out we can trade if you want any.

    I like the wrasse too. All the fish have gotten along pretty well. I have had most of them over 2 years. I did notice this week the coral beauty was chasing the wrasse some, not sure what that is about. PSX_20171201_133246.jpg

    I had to move my elegance coral to this tank. It stopped opening up in the other tank. I think it was the metal halides. I moved it under the LEDs and it opened right up. The only thing about this tank is I am worried about the foxface and coral beauty. I hope they leave it alone.

    The wall hammer I got at reef splash is really opening up. It is just the basic color, but I really like euphiylia coral.

    Was doing a water change and here's a better photo of the hammer and goni:

    Just some photos. But that red goni from Reef Splash just keeps getting fuzzier and redder. Such an awesome piece.

    Nice Al! I knew I was going to regret not getting a piece of that!

    Maybe I can keep it alive and get you a piece. The long polyped red ones are hardier, so I am hoping it is true for the red encrusting ones too.

    Was it the long polyp red ones that we got at the meeting before? I got some sort of red Goni but I really don’t know anything about them. Mine opens and seems happy though so I must be doing something right so far.

    No. These don't have long polyps at all, and they are encrusting. (Not like ball shaped ones you see)

    So I was at the Fish Bowl and picked up a Scleronephthya. I know they are near impossible to keep, but I still couldn't resist. It was only $35 with my Razorback Reef discount. Here's some photos, it looks kind of pink under the acintic lighting, so I am posting the 2nd photo to show the true orange of the coral.

    I was in Searcy again yesterday, and picked up more coral. A pipe organ, rock flower anemone, and a basic torch coral.
