    image.jpg Random maricultured colony. Solid sky blue after browning out for a short while. Greenmille to the right, red planet frag (only encrusting so far) below that, and blue sunset Mille below that (has since been lost).

    You're right. I have no idea which either. I'm terrible with names.

    Australia's institute for marine science has a nice acropora identification site.

    I tried everything to post my photos from flickr on here but nothing seems to work. I also cant upload the majority of my pic because the files sizes are too large. Anyone have a suggestion?

    ^ Awesome, fantastic macro shots, they are a lot of fun to take and edit sometimes.

    I use Photobucket, I am sure someone else can help.

    6" under 6 bulb T5 set 3" above the water, 5 blue and 1 white, mp10w has a clear path across the tank to it (about 18" from coral to tip of mp10w) I have it set on reef crest full. So pretty much as random as it gets. It certainly gets STRONG flow.

    FWIW that was fresh cut about 2 weeks ago. One of my fastest growers so far.
