    Broken tanks too! Honestly, at first I had great luck with livestock and it dispelled my nervousness. Lately though I have had a bad run sending and receiving.

    Our Lobophyllia is in!

    After a one day shipping delay the new coral arrived in excellent shape. It was puffy and the colors were fantastic even in the bag. Cannot wait to see if the colors get even deeper. The size is perfect for our centerpiece spot and this coral should grow and fill it nicely. (warning, no glass cleaning was done for these pictures).

    Placement angle may need slight adjusting.

    You can see the yellow sponge at night when the anemone retracts.

    He completely deflates and retracts almost every night. Amazing how small he makes himself.

    The new lobo was a serious "pop" of color! I think it is perfect.

    It is actually a little more orange than red in person. Really loving it. It is so meaty. You were talking about Lobos and Trachys before. I always thought I would end up with a Trachyphyllia or maybe a Cynarina for that spot. Problem is this tank is just too small. With a Lobophyllia I feel like I could frag it if it gets too large.
