    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    Nahhh that is just recreational use. ;)

    Technically they are small polyp so yeah I guess. Get your self some easy acropora. Your tank is doing beautifully I am sure an easy Millepora would do nicely.

    Thanks coralline! I'm gonna pick something up tuesday so I'll post picks then. I was thinking of also buying some good led light systems but my T5's are doing so well I don't want to switch now. Lol

    Mille's are one of the better starter SPS IMO. Many hardier proven pieces to be had, and give nice color along with the swaying motion with the longer polyps. Don't become a nusance like pocci can (drops pieces that float around the tank ending up in places you don't want/ stings other corals....), and are just overall better and not nearly as weedy as digi, birdsnest etc. Not that those types are horrible but I prefer to keep their entry into my system to a minimal, and more of a background type coral so they don't block other IMO better looking corals.

    I glued my first SPS frag! Yes, it has begun.......I tore apart my rocks and really didn't pay much attention to all of the other coral - it was the most important to get the stick into the optimal space. Rock rearranging, thinking water change, eyeing PE, I can't stop...
