    Hello everyone I’m just getting started in the reef tank hobby and I’m trying to learn the different types of corals. Does it get easier the more you read and search information on corals to identify them? I have learned a lot from this forum already (thank you) so I decided to sign up. I have a coral that for the life of me I can’t remember the name of and trying to find out care on it. Any pointers is greatly appreciated

    Welcome to R2R! The more you see, the easier it gets to identify;) if I was a betting crab, I'd say a chalice of some type:) ezgif-2-87e260e22b7f.gif #WelcometoR2R

    Remember to keep that gsp on an island. They are great but can become invasive
