It's funny because there are corals in this picture that range from $20 per frag to over $600 per frag retail, yet the one that stands out the most is the Bali Green Slimer ($20 per frag). You don't always have to spend a ton to have a beautiful SPS reef (although the SBB Pinky and the Brain - $600+ frag - stands out nicely in the bottom right corner too

).

Often times as I'm walking down the street, people approach me and ask "Hey Bill, what does it look like if you cut a beautiful frag off of the EA F'n Catalina Wine Mixer, and take a picture of it out of the water (actually no one has ever approached me and asked this - believe it or not). Well peoples, here's your answer... NFS as she's going back on the reef to spur growth on the mother colony.

Great knowing you are setting her aside for me! I have been admiring that colony for a while now. Since my "summer" vacations just concluded it might be about time!

Of course! I think it should be ready for you about this time in 3 years... I'll reach out when it is :)

So I finally finished a big part of this build about 2 months ago. My buddy Jimmy helped me build the wall and it turned out amazing. Much nicer looking than before.

And an FTS from the stairs which gives a bit of a top down look.
