    I love acropora that show a high degree of polyp variability

    Beautiful acros, just found this as well. Not up on all the abbreviations. Can you tell me what RRA and RRC stand for in your 2 different Poison Ivy pieces.
    Thanks

    I'll need to check to see where I posted that as I only have one poison ivy and it is the Canada version -if I typed Asia somewhere that was a mistake

    And yes as Rickyrooz noted

    RRA= Reef Raft Asia
    RRC= Reef Raft Canada

    Thanks bro, I hope all has been good!-
    I got a few AD corals in the grow out phase I just actually moved over into the "main" frag tank/display system-I picked up a pink panther frag too from someone over at RC, seems to grow faster than other pieces I own, time will tell

    I need to have a photo tank built I think that I can move pieces into to take pics. My frag tanks range between 9-11 deep max and I can get far enough away with the new 50mm lens to get focus on some pieces and while the macro shots are nice it's good to have a shot of the whole piece.

    I'm replacing the 2 sumps I'm presently running with one sump-it's 66x44x16 approx 165 gallons. While I do that I've toyed with the idea of adding an extra tru union that would allow me to do like a quick hook up of another tank that I can move pieces in so they can sit awhile and polyps extend for picks. It's no good moving a coral for a pic and it all close up.

    I'll figure out something.

    Thanks for all the comments and following everyone-LOTS more to photograph, just need to figure out HOW :confused:

    Sorry if this has been answered, but I see few fish so are you feeding the corals directly and how? Thanks

    Each frag tank has one yellow tang to eat any algae that may grow, I buy them small and when they get large I trade them in. I feed the fish daily some LRS
    I don't feed the corals per se, I sporadically will dose ME polyp extender. I know the they could grow faster if they were fed, I took a superman table frag about 3-4" at the wide end and added it to my display when I replaced it about 8 months or so ago -it's now about 9" LOL ( it's pictured in here somewhere)
