hollywood stunner chalice 

colony of Xenia which will prollay be trimmed and end up giving away because I don't want it to over run my tank lol 

Gonna try to upload pictures or everything in the next few days and before I get the hate on how new my tank is and I'm rushing it and all that 

water parameters were and are perfect before I added anything other than my clownfish to start

Looks good so far. :) 

 

Hard to tell from that pic but kinda looks like a stomatella. Does it have a hard shell?

Yeah I was thinking stomatella or limpet maybe, can't tell without seeing the other side though.

So I finished the skimmer I'll start a diy thread if anybody wants to know how to do this skimmer I spent under $40

i think the air stone I'm using is too big for the bottle but I'm gonna test it out and get a smaller one if I have too

You've got some nice looking corals! The jack-o-lantern piece is a leptoseris though, not a chalice, they are super cool! I'll be interested to see how your skimmer works as well!
