    Mine is way behind the back. Hard to get picture of it. Can't do top shot too because of the 1" thick brace.[/quote]
    Hmm.... I think you finally have an excuse to build an acrylic box so you can lower your camera into your tank :)

    Sadly, mine kick the bucket a while back. :(

    The milli is underneath the center brace. Only an underwater camera will work.

    I meant Jeremy has an underwater camera. Xinumaster needs an underwater camera to take a picture of his Milli :)

    I seriously doubt if I am the winner. Mine has to be the slowest growing millie I have ever seen. It does however have 5 "branches" or more likely tips and is about the size of my thumb from tip to the joint. Will try to post up a pic when the lights come on later today.

    Man I should have gotten in on this, seems like even my crappy setup at the time would still keep me in contention:)

    That being said only coral I left with that day was the monti that Jeremy was chopping up and there were like 4 pieces left and no one wanted them, so I took one, I do like the color on it too :D

    I think mine is about a few times bigger than on the first pic.

    It is pretty close to the color in pic 2 maybe a little paler green but with the polyps extended it looks alomst brownish with greenish yellow tips. WB is way off in the first pic but I took it before all the lights were on.

    So far it looks like Bryan's ahead, Perry has not provided us with any evidence that "his is bigger" :D

    It's not the size of the coral that matters it is how well you photograph it!

    After I accidentally soak my camera lense in sw trying to take a top down shot I finally have a picture. Luckily it was just a point and shot camera I used. Here is the picture of the yellow milli. It is behind that green slimmer. It looks brown in the picture but actually yellow in person. It was really so hard to take a picture of the millli cause it way behind the back and under the center brace.
