Absolutely incredible @TheRope! Moving it into the bowl has been the best change yet, it's going to be insane in just a few more months! 😵

 

Thank you for sharing it with us all!

Yeah! But theyre one of my favorite corals! Also they grow in tendrils instead of creating a mat so theyre very easy to trim back

I passed by an incredible lfs and found some equally as incredible coral for a good price! Yes I managed to fit more coral in the bowl! Here they are!

 

First pic: Palythoa grandissss! Im so happy i finally found this coral, ive been hunting it for about a year now! And i spotted one mixed in on a random zoa rock, they were kind enough to frag it for me 🙂

 

Second pic: random green palys 

 

Third pic: Purple tip hammer, this guy was so small i had to have him 😂

To be fair i chose very easy corals in general, but these easy corals happen to be my favorites! (Palys and mushrooms are my top 2!)

@TheRope as your bowl has become more full, what helps you decide where to place and glue a new coral frag? Are you ever concerned about your LPS corals stinging your soft corals at night? Any advice for fellow and future pico owners? 🙂
