very beautiful tank. Congrats!! I am pretty sure that in person with all the movement of softies it might be so soothing to watch.

Congrats. Softie/LPS tanks are often understated. Great job and you pulled it off masterfully.

Wow!!!
Sorry if this is a noob question but don't hammer stings other corals especially when they so close to each other?

Euphyllia (frog spawn, hammer and torch corals) have a weak sting. Just enough to grab onto and pull in meaty foods. Currently none of my LPS corals are touching other corals. If they do bump occasionally, it doesn't seem to cause any problems. Just make sure other corals are not in constant contact with them.

I opened up the home-page and literally said "holy sh*t." Congrats. This is proof that my love for softies is not just a beginner thing. I'm glad to see TOTMs that aren't SPS dominated. Keep up the good work and educating your son. Sounds like nice bonding time :)

Simple, stunning and awesome. Not many tanks make me feel like a little kid and get excited about seeing something "new". Great job! You may have inspired me ;)

Overfeed your fish. LOL!

Got a few from a LFS when I first started. Now there is a large population. Every month or so they all climb to the highest rock and release sperm and eggs. Clouds the water for a few hours. If you can't get a few from a LFS or friend, Indo-Pacific Sea Farms sells critter kits. http://www.ipsf.com/

Congrats! I love the way your tank looks! Everything looks healthy and happy! I'm also a LPS and soft coral guy. SPS just doesn't look good to me as I prefer more movement as well.

I read everything you wrote and learned a few things.

Again, great set-up!

Phil.
