I have very beautiful but very evil favites. They grow sweeper tentacles that kill everything they've ever touched. Which isn't much once I learned my lesson. But I can testify that favites -> acan lords. Oh, they also killed my yellow scroll coral (turbinaria). In this picture, the killer sweeper tentacle glued onto the edge of the turbinaria is almost three inches long:

Here's another interesting one - acro vs monticap. Neither one likes touching the other, but the monticap isn't deterred, it's just going over and around the acro. I think it's hoping the suffocate the acro, but maybe it will turn out like the picture @micoastreefing took, with the digi growing right up through the monticap.

LE Angry Pavona. It was a joke among a few geek friends. Everybody eventually got a frag that had perpetual sweeper extension. Those frags didn’t retract them for many months in all tanks. This being during the whole LE craze, hence the name, LE Angry Pavona.

 

So, the story. RBTA takes over clown tank. Eventually, all corals are dead, but the Pavona colony. While the Pavona did take a beating, as one side was completely gone. The rest of it maintained an armada of sweepers that were extended day and night, keeping the BTA at bay. Luckily for me, the live side faced the front of the tank. It was actually very festive looking, as most of the tank was red, with a big patch of green right in the center.

Scolymia beats Trachyphyllia

 

These 2 have been huddled up for the last several weeks without an issue. Yesterday, I woke up to find this...

2018-03-27_06-01-35.thumb.JPG.36bbf4ac9079043c08fb2e889f6260e6.JPG

It looked like the Trachy was attacking the Scoly, but after closer inspection it looks like the Scoly is the champ! The Trachy will be sore for awhile. They have been separated. No warfare this morning!

I had a corky sea finger gorgonian lean against a purple ribbon gorg, and killed off half the ribbon. I separated them and the ribbon recovered (mostly). I don't have pics though.

Today’s match, a classic Backglass Brawl: noname kinda ugly acro vs. no name kinda ugly acro! The drama, the intrigue, ladies and gentlemen get those bets in and hold on to your seat this is going to be, most likely, anticlimactic!

 

Sorry about the photo the angle and refraction made it tough!

For me, acro vs acro usually ends up being a draw, with a tiny no mans land line between them.

So I just noticed on my IP cam that my fungia has literally climbed the side of one of my rocks and is right against one of my RFAs.  Unfortunately the camera is still in IR mode since the tank lights haven't come on yet, but from what I can tell so far no damage and I would think it would move away if it was getting hurt, but once the lights come on I should be able to see.  Not sure how the wife will feel about rescuing the plate.  She doesn't typically enjoy putting her hands in the tank.  LOL

 

RFA > Fungia > RFA ??? TBD

Some action from this week’s coral fights (there are a lot of them going on). As expexted, the Acan Echinata (the most cold blooded killer in my tank) absolutely lit up a bubble gum digi. I think the digi will recover, but for those keeping score at home, the echinata has attacked the following:

 

-Walking dendro (murdered)

-RFA (completely devoured)

-Button Scoly (damaged)

-Digi (scorched everything it could reach)

 

Also, kind of surprisingly, the cyphastrea is beating up on the pectinia. But I don’t know, I wouldn’t poke that bear the pectinia might be the only thing more fearsome than the echinata in my tank...

Pictures!

 

 

Don't mess with an echinata...

Let’s call it a draw so far. Neither seem to be hurt. Interestingly, though, that RFA is usually spread completely out. He’s definitely not trying to touch the fungia. Fear?  Respect?  Annoyance?  Who knows?

 

on a side note while I knew that fungia could move around the sand bed I had no idea they could climb rocks!  9C3ED62C-7DF8-4079-A8EF-1269F958717D.jpeg.4ea4b31e02b7707b7d43c6c91d7abeaa.jpeg

Went ahead and separated them just to be safe. No damage that I can see to either of them. The RFA was fully expanded when I got home so was covering about a quarter of the fungia so I guess he got over it. LOL

 

Still calling this one a draw. 🙂

Should I be worried about a large plate coral inching towards a war coral colony?  It even sounds bad...

I have a three way fight currently playing out: Birdsnest vs Montipora Digitata vs Birdsnest

Reviving an old thread, but I'm really curious how this matchup has played out. I've got a Digi finally starting to take off and it's right between two birdsnests.

Yeah I’m gonna help the revive to ask why no one noticed a blue dick growing in this photo?

The Seriatopora was removed and put in my 75 gallon...... the Digitata and the Neon Birdsnest took each other out. I tried to frag each of them to save their life but no luck. 😕
