    A few recent tank shots with a lousy phone camera.

    It's a no-namer. I simply call it my favorite coral. And these pics don't do it justice.

    The plan is definitely tp DBTC this once it starts growing. It's been in the frag tank for 30 days now and no sign of growth, but it's colored up even more and looks great. It may be a slow grower or it may just be biding it's time and getting adjusted.

    Definitely not trying to pressure you, but sometimes cutting it makes it grow faster.

    You should suggest this as a BRS investigates topic.

    Go for it. I have no idea how to do that. I did say sometimes tho. The cut edge has to heal so it has to grow

    13th from the bottom? Give me a little better guide to figure out which you're looking at.

    Left are Dendropyllia's . To the right is a small colony of Sun Coral. Both are non-photosynthetic corals. They have to be fed.
