I'm the last to jump into that name fad si to me it's just a nice piece of Turbinaria reniformis, but yes, you could call it LA lakers scroll. B)

Maybe 3 1/2" in diameter. Haven't had it long enough to really elaborate on growth rate. Seems to be so far slightly slower grower than montipora caps.

Maybe it just needs to settle in. My grows so fast I can see it without picture comparison. It's one of my favorite pieces tho and they have awesome polyp extension. Your tank is looking great BTW.

I know I'm not that great photographer, but this hurts man. :haha:
Did that algae of your also have eyes and little visible spine in each blob and did it also wiggle about?
(Yes, I witnessed first hand my Gobiodon histrio spawn this batch (of algae) on their home acro.

I take it you've never seen fish eggs before huh?

You're the type of man who passes by sports illustrated and grabs encyclopedia brittanica when you take a dump, huh?

Did someone mention Alto ???
Im GAGA for Alto !!

I'd give you a hug but you might stab me

Great tank. Love the color in your tank. Is it from feeding, T5 lighting combination, color selection, or all three. I want this color in my tank..

Great tank. Love the color in your tank. Is it from feeding, T5 lighting combination, color selection, or all three. I want this color in my tank..

Thanks! My best guess would be the combination of all the aforementioned plus about a hundred other variables. Stable conditions and not stressing about minor details are the key IMO.

It's okay. I think there's different kinds of eggs for different kinds of fish etc.. The eggs are still there with both parents well on guard. They come nipping at my hand now if I go too close! :o

glad i found this thread.. i enjoyed! can't wait to see the babies

See the babies?
