Congrats and much deserved. This tank is such an inspiration to us all.

In the full tank shot, where the Jawfish (it is a jawfish right?) is in his hole, What is that orange coral right above him?

Thanks for the comments everyone.


Renegade545.... That is 2 colonies of dendros. The one on the right started out as 1 polyp. I kept feeding it regulaly and then it sprouted 11 new polyps all at about the same time! ;)

Very nice tank! Love the coloration of all the livestock. The colors contrast well, and stand out in a very good way!

:blush: stop flirtin' or I might cross the border.

Good choice - gorgeous tank!

What does the "ORA" mean in the names of so many of our corals?

thanks,

HankB...... ORA stands for Oceans Reef and Aquariums. They are a breeding farm for fish and corals and clams. They don't sell direct to the public, but through ORA dealers. I'm fortunate that my LFS has been an ORA dealer for a long time. That's how I got the Picasso Clowns.
Here's a link to ORA:

Congratulations, what a great looking reef. I can't believe that the photograph at 7 months is of the same tank- you made some good decisions between then and now.

You truly have a beautiful tank, one that would be a great model for anyone who want to start a saltwater reef. Well done.
Thank God always!

Tank is pimp!
thrive (adjective) (throve,thriven, also thrived)
Very lively and profitable; blooming; a term often used by nubz looking for excuses on why they have something in their reef that does not belong there.
"The tangs in my 40 gallon are thriving", "All 13 fish in my pico throve until I forgot to feed them one day"

What is the coral on the left side of the tank (Green). It looks like it is on a magnet or growing from the glass and that it has nothing under it. Is that the case? I am lovin that look.
