    If you haven't noticed, after some discussion and feedback from 3reef Supporters, we have split up the coral board into SPS, LPS, Softies and NPS categories. I want to highlight the heroic efforts of Steve and Curt. Moving over 3,400 threads is an undertaking and they have already moved over 1,200 threads on to the new boards this weekend. :shocked3: Amazing. Please extend thanks to our mods. They deserve it. I hope you like the organization we are trying to apply to the boards. More to come. Thank you for your patience while we move things around.

    New boards:

    <acronym title="Small polyped Scleractinian (stoney) coral">SPS</acronym> Corals
    <acronym title="Small polyped Scleractinian (stoney) coral">SPS</acronym> hard coral - Small polyp stony corals such as Acropora coral, Montipora coral, stylophora coral, etc.

    <acronym title="Large polyped Scleractinian (stoney) coral; also Local Pet Store">LPS</acronym> Corals
    <acronym title="Large polyped Scleractinian (stoney) coral; also Local Pet Store">LPS</acronym> coral - large polyp stony corals such as brain coral, torch coral, hammer coral, bubble coral, elegance coral, etc.

    Soft Corals
    Soft corals such as tree coral, sea fans, mushroom coral, leather coral, etc.

    NPS Corals
    Non photosynthetic corals - sun corals, gorgonians, dendrophyllia, neospongodes, etc.

    Kudos to all involved. What a boring, tedious task that must be. :)

    I'm done for the night. My eyeballs are about to fall out. LOL

    When we are done, you are going to benefit a lot. You'll be able to go to the search engine on the top of each forum and click on "Search This Forum". That way, if you have a question about coral placement or flow, you'll only get responses related to the type of coral you are researching. It will really narrow the search results.

    I have noticed one thing. A lot of members use VERY NON-DESCRIPTIVE titles. That makes it very difficult on the search engine, people wanting to help you, etc. Additionally, when mods have to do maintenance, it makes it very challenging. If there's not a good title, we have to open up each and every thread.

    Title Examples

    Why did my frogspawn lose one of it's polyps? GOOD
    Sick Coral???? BAD
    How much flow does my birdsnest need? GOOD
    How much flow? BAD
