Area 51 is getting bigger, and bigger, and bigger

Posted 05/15/2012 at 12:05 AM by IridescentLily

I'm SO glad i was able to get my tank lighting to a a good balance. A sweet spot where my trachyphyllia Radiata (who we call 'Area 51') is no longer bleaching and pulled in, yet still have the higher light needs met for the other 90% of my softy, lps and sps corals.
Well, i was successful and now the radiata is doing a very quick turn around. When a coral is healthy again, it starts to grow, the colors are more vibrant, and the polyps are let out, puffy, and relaxed.
So is Area 51 now.
In fact he's getting so much bigger he is now 6.5" in diameter, and 3.75" high.
Now i have a different challenge. Keeping it from moving into other corals' existing space.
He looks like a little girls Easter bonnet when he's relaxed.
A nuclear, tie dyed, Easter bonnet
from space....who just ate thanksgiving dinner.

    Here's what Area 51 looks like a month or so later.
