    And on the stylos, depends on whether you want an encrusting coral or on that grows up and out?

    You change your screen name because it was your full name and now you’re giving out your phone number to the world? :)

    No I changed my screen name 'cause I use daddio on other forums and Peter signed me up with Mark B. As for putting my business phone number out there, it is plastered everywhere already. And I have to tell you, I get more spam calls from google than all the rest combined.

    I am in the market for both, but given a choice, my priority is a branching coral. :)

    So on the stylos, stylocoeniella (the encrusting one) is a sensitive coral and really needs stability and since your reef is fairly new, I would recommend staying with corals that are a little more forgiving. On stylophora (branches), I honestly find it quite boring and if I was setting up a small reef with limited space, I wouldnt choose this coral. The ones I see are fairly chunky and really dont glow much under the blue lights. They just look kind of black. I think if your looking for a branching coral perhaps a nice neon birdsnest? (I dont have any) or even a pocillopora ( I have some)? BTW -these 3 corals are all in the same family.
    Cheers! Mark

    And I forgot to mention that I saw @roostertech yesterday and he possibly has GSP that he may be looking to give away? He is in Fremont so it would save you having to travel across the bay

    Thanks for the advice. Guess I’ll abort mission. I do have a pocillipora and bird nest now. I’ll do more research on other branching corals.

    I have a crap load of procillipora should double think about putting it in your tank.

    I think pocillapora is a good beginner coral. Fairly hearty and decent grower for sps. I’ve never had it get out of control. It’s pretty easy to frag.

    For me, it's like a dandelion. It just spontaneously starts growing out of my rock - everywhere

    I do like how the pocillipora is a forgiving coral yet it’s beautiful. Perfect for a rookie like me!

    If you need Red Monti Cap or GSP, I’m in Milpitas.
