Got starfish I hope
Too many and extra we are moving to the sump for back up supply and we have some in our other tank. We hope to keep him eating for a while! Woke up this morning and the whole tank had star fish at the top of the glass! They must have sacred “run” the harlequin is here!

I bought one head of zenia and like magic I had a whole 225 gallon tank of it in no Time at all. I would have preferred the Walt Disney Acro tank LOL

It would be either 1) Milka stylo --- nice movement and great structure, or 2) staghorn of some type. The fish seem to like being in the coral and it looks awesome.

Species specific displays, done right, can be beautiful. There used to be a shop in St. Louis that had a branching hammer, all by itself, no live rock, just sand, and this giant, twisting, hammer... probably more than a hundred heads. A school of anthius were the only fishes, in a 36" square tank, fairly low. Beautiful.

I've seen a couple xenia-only tanks (or xenia-dominated) and they're actually pretty neat. I've just never had great luck wit the stuff, and I'm sure it'd just melt on me at some point.

All-anemone tanks can be pretty neat too. I think BRS has a big one set up.


I think Montipora Spongodes, Confusa, or elkhorn monti could be interesting - bunch of different growth forms.

I'm a little upset with you all for not mentioning chalices yet!

I love the WWC jellybean or my WWC space invader

Nice! You got me thinking about a tank with Raja Rampage as the centerpiece. Another neat idea would be an efflo-only tank.

I saw a 60g cube once with a huge birdsnest and a school of Chromis. That was pretty awesome.

For me I would probably do an SPS that was more exciting than a birdnest. A Millepora might be fun
