    The pic I posted was taken under normal room fluorescent lighting. The green is actually very bright.

    Your coral will do o.k. in lower light. The green may fade a little but it will survive and grow. Growth won't be as fast though.

    Is there a trick to getting this Monti off the rock with the Cyphastrea? Great coloration and I def want to keep him.
    Also, my acro that I have had for several months never really has done well. It has been a headache for me. The coral is completely flat on one side and all of the branches pointing out (or up) on the oppossite side. This would reason this coral should be horizontal correct? Flat side down. Fingers pointing up

    Ah yes thank you! Very similar to this only with a slash of red and blue. Small polyps that are a rusty red color.

    Use a cold chisel and break the rock apart between the corals. Or use a Dremel and cut the rock apart.

    Try to break the rock off where the monti has encrusted. I use large cutting pliers to do this. The acro is growing in that pattern do it being laid down like that. It will grow up toward light.
