What a colorful tank!
Thank you, lots more to come =)

Love the polyp color on that one ! ! ! ;Woot ;Woot
I know right? it seems healthy enough and is already regenerating new tissue in a couple damaged areas.. I was sure That I would need to clip a couple branches with missing flesh, also typically if you have flesh falling off the skeleton of these NPS gorg’s it doesn’t end well..

The exposed skeleton was even greater than shown in picture below when it arrived Friday. (Picture from Saturday)

This picture was taken today, hard to see clearly but it’s almost completely healed =)

Love the polyp colour on that one, I am leaving all 3 of my rescues alone, they seem to recover quite well for me. :)

That sure is pretty.
Thank you, I’ve never seen red polyps on a gorgi before so I just had to get a piece =)

Thanks! I’m trying to leave them alone now that they are placed, feeding them daily to hopefully get them off to a good start.

I love the diversity in your tank!
Thank you.. I want one of each ;)
