    Hi. Thanks again for the GSP. Only 10-15 polyps are opening so far...I'll take picture later once the light turns on. On the photo, its on the lower left.

    Looks good.

    One thing to learn is which corals will take over a tank if given the chance. Those yellow polyps on the right definitely fit the bill, as does gsp, nothing wrong with them just keep an eye out as they get closer to another rock, you might need to move the rock farther away.

    Overall though I think you are doing a great job with your tank

    Just to 2nd what Mike said there are some corals that will over run your tank rather quickly. You may like them and that's ok. Your certainly on the right track ( everything is alive ) enjoy the hobby as much as you can

    Nothing "beginner" looking about your tank! Everything looks great - clam, fish, corals, and macro pictures look amazing!!
