    hopefully, third time is a charm lol - bought an itsy bitsy milli today and am going to give it a try. I have it high in the tank in high flow. The other two frags I tried both fell down and perished - one was not doing well before the fall. Wish me luck!

    Also, I got the cutest little anemone crab today - it has the same coloration as a sexy shrimp (which I love but can't have because they're too small and my pistol would eat them I'm sure).

    It really is best to start any new corals off low and raise them over a couple of weeks to stop any light shock :)

    What color milli did you get, oldfishkeeper?
    You should acclimate the new frag to your lighting. You don't have to put it all the way at the bottom. I recommend mid-range in your tank with good flow.

    Congrats on the SPS. I can't keep an Acro to save my life, but birdsnest and monti digitata do well.

    Congrats Mindy on the new MIlli.

    I feel the flow doesn/t have to be that great, a gentle flow works on my Milli's.

    And the pic is?
