    Yeah no kidding! That acropora above it is not bad either. lol.

    It would be an ideal sps to start with Mark, once the tanks settles and the parameters are stable. Not too expensive to try your hand at and easy. Look at local reefing clubs or CL if you can not afford the more expensive and colorful ones found at vendor sites.

    Thanks Cheryl.

    Thank you on both accounts Trent.



    For everyone's info, I grew that colony from a frag obtained from Reef Empire. It is a colony that Nate keeps and regularly offers aquacultured frags from. It is listed as "Rainbow Pocillopora" and is often available on his web page, as well as his eBay auctions.

    leigthton1245,

    If looks sooo much better now, great green. What is your lighting again?

    They all look pitiful when the polyps are retracted (1st image), but the growth and coloration on yours is very nice.
