Sweet! I love TCF by the way. Are the oyster eggs just for Sps?

Thanks Mark, hibernated for a year and nearly lost it before it fired back up

Sorry Paul, Oyster Feast

There for almost every coral and filter feeder, not just SPS, but one of the few foods small enough for SPS to consume.

Doug: Thanks dude~! That Valida in the group shot is the same one you gave me from way back

Gem: Mz Lipps looks about the same, 2 polyp since I split it and donated the other half to the Eco Station..Should come by some time and look at the difference since you last were there, I'd say everything's come around about 10 fold since then and looks pretty dang nice if I say so myself

I will make it a point to stop by soon! They're lucky they have you there to whip that fish section in shape!

Thanks Kevin!

Hey Brian, yes, well, middle and center just above and behind the bright pink acro One of them anyway, I actually have 2 colonies of it, the one in the pic being the smaller. The reason for the 2, long story, but when I first aquired it from Tony and Maria back in the day off Dewey when they ran the fish store it was actually 2 stalks of formosa, but one was slightly greener than the other and the other was slightly more blue tipped than the other. Could be the same exact, or a slight color variant, but decided to grow out both seperately. The one in the pic grew out to a huge colony but after last years tank woes the one in the pic is whats left of the slightly bluer variant, the other not pictured is about the size of an encrusted cantelope

Looking good bro. I love that green eye Favia hiding in the back ground! I'm going to try and visit the Eco Station in the next month or so. It's on our "Family" to do list.

cont..

candy:

(L to R; Kev's Abrohl, dots' tri color, insanley orange lep from YR)

Sold to me as an Acropora parralis(sp?):

really coming along nicely coloration is similar to Pam's purple tip, but with contrasting white polyps along the stalks. Great piece from Aquatic Collection, among others..

Mine own Arctic Berry, with Sam's Ice blue lep and mine own Grape Ape lep underneath


Probably the best shot in the bunch right here:

acro with blue tips aquired from Kev, but he nor I are sure of it's lineage, the green tipped acro is my formosa that many of you have
