    Great growth on the BN. You should have a small colony by New Years.

    Here are some of mine. Ive had some really good growth. in Dec 2011 I swapped from Halides to LED. In Sept 2012 I found Flatworms in my tank. Each of these corals was dipped several times in Bayer Advanced with them still attached to the rocks (except the green table). as you can see, the color was AWFUL during that time period. they have since made a wonderful recovery. Check out my Build thread for some Serious TOP down photos of each of these corals. The green table is amazing.

    Incredible shots. I am very anxious to see my frags two years from now. Slow and steady growth, but the tank looks "pieced" together right now.

    Is that Joe the Coral in the first image? That stag exploded.
