    5 or 6 here. I'd have to get em to close up to see if the new ones opened yet. Definite 5 though.

    5 open, 1 growing. I just added a skimmer. What is everyone using? I started using red sea a&b. I'm also going to start using coral colors and reef chili

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] I have six full and a few bulbs starting. I've added a mini skimmer, a few new fish, and some other corals. I am dosing reef energy and reef chili every few days. [​IMG]

    3 here. Started with 1. Can see the little ones off to the sides. Had to move to get a pic and they closed but the polyps are visible. 0612171014.jpg 0612171013a.jpg

    Yours are nice and spread out. My polyps are all clustered real close.

    That's a recent development. I need to try cutting the plug to flatten it out and mount it to rubble.

    Currently at 5 total. Picture taking skills still terrible. Had a little outbreak of hair algae in the last couple of weeks. :(

    I have been using a homemade macro algae reactor to combat green hair and it has been working well.

    2 polyps still, crappy picture because I'm currently running lights out to try to control a cyano outbreak. Cut them off the original plug and glued them to a piece of dry rock

    Same here. I think my issue is I took too much out at once when I cleaned it. At least thats my theory. I don't feed any more than I was... if anything less.

    6 in picture but 7 in total I'll have to move the frag over slightly to get the 7th to open back up for next month.
