    Thanks! The Monti Digitata, Birdsnest, Galaxia, and Acropora where around 130$ Not to horrid. They are decent sized frags IMO.

    The pics where from right when I turned the lights on after moving things around. They have gained quite a bit of polyp extension since then.

    Great additions man! I just bid on a bunch of corals on ebay. I'm almost hoping I get outbid on at least a couple of them....I went a little crazy with the bid button :shifty:

    I was very impressed with them all. However Not sure if they should be at the tippy top of the tank quite yet.

    If any of the corals were under MH at DFA then they will probably be OK. Make sure the galaxia is in a high flow area, they are extremely aggressive with their tentacles at night at that will help keep them from extending as much. I read where on reefer had his galaxia extend it's tentacles over 12 inches from the base.

    Great looking corals BTW.

    They went from MH 400 Watts hung 30 inches above the tank, into a 150W MH but mines only 12 inches from the tank. Theirs where about mid level not huge extension of the polyps. I have alot more extention of polyps now then they did at the store!
