    Shrimp is in the frag tank and tang is in the DT. That tang wasn’t well treated in his last tank, not sure what happened to his tail fin. He was like this when I got him.

    Pretty nice colors there. I notice what might be halimeda? algae, it's calcareous and will consume a lot of calcium from your water; if it gets out of control your Calcium will drop dramatically. Nice macro and a lot of people like it.
    As Mike points, watch out for those dinos.

    How do you get your psammacora to grow? I've had a couple of frags and I can't get them to grow

    I only had this for couple months, can’t tell if it grew much. But I placed it near mid water flow and close to the light at top.
