    I seriously cannot believe you haven't SS!! I imagine enormous colonies of all colors and varieties in your tank ;) and usually that would occur within about a week's time with the next week.......oh my gosh my SPS is growing everywhere and I'm going to need to start fragging....they're growing outside of my tank!

    yes, I've got the PE going on....it's moving pretty well in the flow....I'll try and get hubby to take a pic. Please remember this is a one inch size piece of sps lol

    These aren't the best (I don't think hubby understands what I need :) Also added in a full tank shot.

    I talked to hubby last night and he's going to show me how to use his fancy cameras so I can get some decent shots of things :)

    Purple stylo is a great first piece and that's a really good spot for it.

    There's no turning back from here... :)

    thanks!! I know it needed to be high in the tank with lots of flow. Glad to know I put it in a good spot :)

    Changed threads not to high jack the OP's!. I have had a few SPS frags over the last few months and they all die in 2-4 weeks and I only ever see brief polyp extension.

    I have declared my self a fail at SPS. I have one in the tank at the moment but we will see how that goes. Probably will die.
