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!

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.

How do you deal with red slime in your tank? I read that you had it before. Thanks

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

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.
