    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    Montipora capricornis, Orange I believe. A higher flow the more swirl to the growth formation you get. Needs acclimation to lighting (one of those corals that really benefits from acclimation). Move up to higher intensity lighting

    picked up some new corals over the past few days. I think I might have the acro bug :( but I'm running out of room.

    I know I haven't posted in a while ,Have be extremely busy with work and all. Unfortunately I have had a bad dino outbreak that has become uncontrollable (my fault bought from a local fish store without quarantining) starting to see some of the corals suffer from it so I am doing a 3 day blackout as a last resort. I only have one fish a mandarin.
