Thanks.. been looking for a orange fungi I could afford, my LFS had one a while back that was beautiful but they wanted $150 for it! I got all three of those pieces on sale delivered for a little over $150.

Those acans beside your new Rastas are gorgeous!
Thats probably my gold rim Favia you see to the right of the Rastas

My orange plate pouted the longest. Don't expect it to get fluffy right away.
Interesting, how is it doing for you now that it’s settled? The one I have coming is Australian, their supposed to be super hardy.

Yes it is your favia! Gorgeous! Both of my orange were Aussie too. Both stayed hard and no real tentacle extension for about 6-8 weeks.

Thanks for the heads up, I won’t panic if it doesn't inflate right away.. my green one was fully inflated within about 15 minutes after being introduced into my tank.

When you get a chance could you show me another pic of your favia? I never see those here. Please excuse my ignorance, but I'm reading about them. I'd like one of those.

I’ll get a fresh picture tomorrow for you, they are pretty hardy but can be aggressive with sweepers at night so you have to be careful with placement.

Morning, I'm with Katrina on this! ;)
Mid sorting out my mini drama. :)
Yeah I was just over catching up on your journal, hope you get things sorted.. I’m not much on controllers but I still needed a couple timers, float switch return cut off for the fuge and really wanted to be able to check my PH at a glance. All of those items purchased separately would have cost more than what I payed for the Reef Keeper. It won’t be used for anything real critical as I still don’t trust them ;)
