that is awesome--I would like to know what it is also.
Could even be frogspawn, or hopefully not grape caulerpa

Excuse my ignorance, but what is the green coral towards the middle, on the sand, that looks like a mound of perfect grass? It looks like its also in the right hand corner. Is it GSP?
Cheers,

How is it that they get it to look like grass like that? Most GSP I see seem to always be long, and extended?
Is it a special type?

Here is a pic of mine i know there is some sps in the middle but i am going for mainly lps. I still need a good hammer going to replace the slowly failing torch in the top right. Not to mention getting rid of this red algae i am having trouble with.

There are different species , growth forms of GSP, and even corals from other famalies that get confused with GSP! Just like other corals, lighting and flow will greatly effect this corals growth form and color. However Pachyclavularia violacea is the most common, and IME can and will develop a lot like OwNeD162 GSP has.

If you see MinibowMatts post above, he has it all along his back-top wall, but as he said its not GSP, its an encrusting gorgonian. I bet anything that its a Briarium sp. Here is a VERY generalized description of the two: http://animal-world.com/encyclo/reef...or/grnstar.php

Lowredranger, that is an awesome little tank you have there!

Cheers for that stunreefer, i'll have to do a bit of research and work out which ones more commonly grow like that.
Thanks again

What is that at the bottom there... a "yellow"? short tentacle plate next to the purple one?

It is actually an orange short tentacle plate along with the purple short tentacle plate. The picture and the algae that i finally got off the glass down there kinda distorts it in the pic.

Back when it was LPS/softie dominated. It's mostly SPS now.
