What's the first coral you got for your nano reef? My first was green star polyps.

First coral that i got was in a 4 pack from live aquaria: mushrooms, gsp, kenya tree, and a leather. I cant vote for 4 things though so i'll just vote for gsp because its my favorite.

Bought a Torch 'cause I was looking for something for Clowns to host in. They have never gone near it and now the Torch owns the whole bottom left side of my Cube. Hes going to have to go so I can put something else in that secton of my tank. Got a Galaxy that owns the top left side...might have to send them both packing.

My first corals, since I bought them all at the same time, was a purple monster and a superman danae, since they love 96w of PC light, plus a gonipora...cause they're really hardy!

just kidding...

a mushroom...it was so pretty...
