    A local reefer buddy of mine wrote this article. I have seen this tank in person a few times and it's always as amazing as the pictures make it out to be. This is in his reef savvy 120 SPS dominated tank, and I mean dominated! haha

    I love that he wrote this article on the m. digitata coral, as when I was there last, I picked up a frag of his pink digi and a german blue digi. Both have been growing, I am just waiting for the blue to color up like his is...

    I told Joe to come over here and sign up. Then he could maybe add some extra pictures of his digi collection. His FF digi colony is so awesome! And you don't get to see the whole thing, but I agree, a very underrated coral. The ones I've seen always have a strong color but erratic growth and I love it! I'm so happy to know there are more colors! My LFS just got some green digi in, I think, I may have to..... no, I can't, I must stay away. I'm getting sidetracked, thanks!

    I feel like a nerd showing off joe's tank so much... But it's such an amazing tank and Joe is a great guy!! He also sold me my dslr, so he has been part of my continuing inspiration for photography, as well!

    So, with all that, here is the rest of his tank. http://reefsavvy.com/ghost-overflow/

    That FF digi is pretty awesome. I really like Monti and this article has just added one more to my evergrowing wishlist of montipora.

    Nice article. Thanks. I just picked up two frags of the FF. Hopefully it will start growing soon.
