I have an occ and the black and white occ. Flip ended up in the big 'nem in the sky (I think he was special) but still have Sheila (the black and white)

 

I turned my MP10 up to 100% and it pissed 95% of my coral off.

Can't take credit for that one ry05coupe came up with that.

 

and side note (completely off topic) mini dude's sig is just weird. You should tell his mother. :lol:

 

Oh and also is that a gonipora? I read they were hard to take care of.

wtf he's 12 i was a damn retard when i was 12... ok not really i was a damn genius, but then again i had way too much fun in college.

 

yeah its a goni, i got it from a local here said it was bleaching out in his tank and he couldn't figure it out so i gave him a frag of my tabling acro and we called it even. lol but the moment it hit my tank (after sitting in my office all day.) it started opening up and the green was showing off real nice so i'm not sure what was wrong with it really?i did dose some fish heads phyto so i dunno if that triggered a feeding response of what. but it seems happy on my bb.

It looks cool, I think some people have had clowns host it.

 

I am toying with getting a RBTA for my tank. Im nervous that it's going to move along and leave a wake of dead frags in it's path.

I tend to overfeed my coral anyhow haha. I just don't know where I could put it that it would be happiest.

 

I'll have to do a site survey haha.

 

Thanks for the advice. Think I am going to pull the trigger and get one now. Here's hoping my clown and it become the best of friends. And quickly. It'd be different to not see her sleeping by the magfloat though.
