After allowing this tank to mature for at least a month I finally added my first 2 leathers. I purchased this Biocube several months ago and it has gone through some major wear and tear (trying to mod it in ways it was NEVER designed to). So now everything back to stock :lol: These guys were added only hours ago and so far their expansion and PE is great!

Does anyone have an idea what species this is? It reminds me of a kenya tree however it is light green with brown polyps.

Thats definately a kenya tree. I have heard that there is a neon green kenya which is rarer.

Thanks for the compliments :D If it is in fact a "pineapple tree coral" I would be very happy as I picked it up for $35. In fact every coral in my aquarium was $35.

every coral i have owned were less than $40 too. i am actually doing similar to your leather-tank concept except i am doing a tree-and-flower-like coral tank, only if you know what i mean :)
