    No problem Ed, I'll let you know. I am using a nikon d200 with a 90mm tamron macro lens. For the cyphastrea, I have mine on the bottom of my tank. Moderate flow. It grows really fast.

    damn, that's some growth you got there!

    I guess once it sorta settles down it'll go nuts ;)

    Mine was that way too. Sat around encrusting like crazy, and maybe about a month or so ago, all kind of branches started sprouting. Wonder if all frags from that colony have a growth spurt at the same time... would be interesting.

    New pick up. I had to photoshop it a bit to get the colors to look right. Norman can attest to the brightness. He has a chunk in his tank right now. Still can't get the green to glow like it does in the tank.
