344 Days of fun (...and pain, and anger, and frustration) with this tank, I finally purchased my first coral! It is not what I was looking for - but it is what happened. I was really looking to purchase a Euphelia (Frogspawn or Hammer??). I was buying some CUC and just wanted that free shipping...they really get you there don't they? I didn't find anything I was actually actively looking for, but then saw an Elegance Coral [Elegance Coral, Pink/Purple Tip (Australia)]. QUICK - YouTube for an hour.... OK, I think this will be OK, maybe worried about my snails??? ...but this isn't a snail tank, as much as I LOVE my snails!

Please give me any of your thoughts or suggestions on the Elegance Coral...wish me luck! I went slow, my params are all in good order, my GHA is still staring me in the eye...but I am winning at this point (knock on wood)!
