    I just received a mycedium colony and on the underside of it there are quite a few baby sun coral polyps. (or at least as far as I can identify)

    So to all that have had sun corals reproduce: what are the chances of them surviving and do I have to do anything special to keep them alive? Other than the annoying required feedings...

    His Red-Tail Coris would have long ate them if he did...

    I still don't understand why y'all hate hermits... :)

    Well I think I saw online somewhere that you had some sun coral eating nudibranch? Do you still have them

    Yes, I hate those annoying little buggers!

    Actually I do not mind the ones that stay really really small. The rest kill snails, each other, climb on my sps and steal food from my lps. :)

    Oh heck no. Frick and Frack were fun. They were neat. However, after several hundred dollars worth of inventory, they were no longer that neat. They ate more expensively than I did. ;D

    I can't find the better pictures of Frick and Frack. However, here's a pic of them that is less clear.
