Last week we talked about our dream fish and I thought why not keep dreaming to start this week in reefing! Some people dream of certain corals because they can't keep them alive in their tank whereas others may not be able to afford a certain type or piece of coral. Whatever it may be let's discuss your dream coral today!

1. Do you have a dream coral and if so what is it?

2. If you don't already own your dream coral what is stopping you from owning it now?

I wish a researcher in FL with legal permission to do so would send me a chip of endangered florida staghorn so I can grow it out in a pico

we could then use an armada of bowls to boost up mass greatly, I predict it will grow just fine in our confines.

we could in turn mail them more back than they sent.

I want a homewrecker. But at the prices I’ve seen, the name would come true if my wife found out what I spent on it! Very aptly named coral.

I need to finish upgrading my halides before considering it anyway. If I bought one now, it would probably just turn brown under my existing halides.

I’ve been obsessing over a TCK master torch. Finally made my order yesterday and am preparing defense to my wife as to why this was “essential”. Wish me luck!
I tried hinting my wife about the holy grail, even as my bday present. Answer was NOPE! :(

I feel my dream coral will always be out there. I will always be trying to fill the void of something new I want. There will always be a corals I want, even after I get my hands on it. Right now I really desire to own a OG Bounce Shroom. Price is really the only factor at the moment. MAN I NEED TO HIT THAT MEGA TOMORROW! If I don't though and you want to help my current dream come true, hit me up.

My dream coral is impossible to kill, grows rapidly without changing water chemistry, stops growing when it fills in the area you want it to, and doesn't adversely impact the corals growing around it.

So no, I don't have my dream coral.

While I technically own my dream species, there is a specific variety that I drool over, and that is the golden Acanthophyllia. I don't know if you have ever seen one, but they are one of the most amazing things I've ever seen! Another dream for me is to find a nice quality Indophyllia, essentially a Cynarina on steroids. You can find them around, but they are most often just brown or green.
Another dream of mine (possibly even bigger than the golden acantho) would be to stake out a blue LTA. I've seen them on the web and I was awestruck, just hoping I'll be able to find one someday.
