    I do not "feed" them myself...They do catch brine shrimp when i feed the tank...as for spawning...i guess this rock is just the spawning type rock...i don't do anything to them...and they have just popped up...luck maybe, but I just try to keep my water as clear and clean as possible, BUT I do like to have at around 10ppm nitrates in the tank...my corals seem to flourish more and grow faster than when i had it at 0ppm...my sps included....anomaly?

    I don't think that is an anomaly. I notice this kind of thing - my corals seem to do better with fish, than without for example. Also just this week I had power outage and my skimmer flooded when it came back on (I need to baffle my sump better!) and although my corals were not all as happy about it, my deresa clam sure was. He was bigger than I had seem him in weeks.

    Anyway, thanks for info... and nice fungias!

    Yeh I got lucky for sure. :) This is just one of the reasons I love this hobby so much, you never know what might pop up off of a little cheap frag. I've also had frogspawn come to life...i got a skeleton from the lfs that was in the rubble...threw it in my tank and about 6 months later out popped a tiny little frogspawn head, its a testament to good water quality.

    Here are some new pics...in one of the pics (the blurry one) This is where I broke my greener fungia off....well the remaining skeleton has grown a new fungia...its bright green and CRYSTAL clear...when I feed it a mysis I can actually see it go into the coral..its CRAZY...I really hope that it stays crystal clear because I've never ever seen a fungia that is clear with electric green tips...u can see it in both pics...but the pink little one is growing nicely :)
