    This is the other colony I got when I ordered. It is a A. robusta. It got nice polyp extension and seem real happy in the tank.

    I think I am on top of it now. Figure out what caused it and now I am getting rid of it. Funny thing though SPS is suppose to be so picky when it comes to water quality and all of this does not seem to bother it at all. Of course my tank basically is a 75G algae scrubber right now.

    That's a nice looking sps coral!!! How much did it set you back?
    I almost always buy frags because something that size would be very expensive ;D Plus if it died on me I would be very upset :mad:
    Once again That's a nice looking coral :)
