I have a few corals that I do not know the names of/ type just got them cause well just cause so every once in awhile I hope to post a pic here in hopes I can get an ID and actually learn that which I care for. Others can post their pics to if they like as I get an ID I'm making a file with their names just to give me more of a coral knowledge in my brain rather than looking like a fool cause I don't know.

This is the first pic of sps is like to get an ID for thanks. I will have more to come as I catch them in the light

Well thank you for the reply I wasn't sure if it was a birds nest. I got the colony for 20 bucks. And it looks great and has coloured up nicely I have a few other pieces I'm unsure about but I hope to read up on each one

No, not a birdsnest. It's acropora. Not sure type though.

Nothing for you Jeff :) it was a freebie frag from fragalot quite awhile ago.It probably 4x5 by now,and it's not acropora so i'm not interested in it.

I've always had a little of everything just being a bit more selective on the softies and Lps no more Kenya trees or the like from me, I have some mushrooms my toadstool and my huge red zoa rock
Then my frogspawn and hammers Duncan's all of which was in the 90. I'm hoping if I plan placement everything can co exist.. I like to many things just to have one and no way in hell my wife will let me make another big tank

Just make sure you run carbon, softies release toxins to inhibit growth of other corals.
