    Bio Reef - Green Goblin

    Project 365 - September 20th, 2016
    The greenest of green corals, the Green Goblin from Bio Reef! This is a really cool coral, actually in the anacropora family. It's truly like no other coral that I have.

    It has been awhile since I got to check out your new posts. As always absolutely stunning pictures. I think I am going to have to find a pearl berry to add to my own tank after seeing the detail in yours.

    Tri Color

    Project 365 - September 22nd, 2016
    100 Remaining!!!

    Tonight's post is of my Tri Color which is a bit odd, cause it's not much of 2 colors let alone 3. It's a nice coral all the same, especially viewed top down like this.

    Thanks for looking

    dang that is a seriously vibrant blue :eek: really enjoy the macro shots where you can see the texture in the coral.

    And only 100 to go! Keep up the awesome effort mate

    revhtree - Almost too vivid.

    G8trBait - Thanks, it's my fav for a reason.

    Delandereefer - PearlBerry is the GOAT in my opinion.

    Alfrareef - If I find myself in Portugal, I will take you up on that.

    MaccaPopEye - Thanks so much.

    Cherry Corals - Kick *** Horrida

    Project 365 - September 23rd, 2016

    Wow! I'm down to double digits in terms of remaining posts. Its been a while since I've seen the light at the end of the tunnel but it's starting to become visible.

    Today's post is of a coral from Cherry Corals. I really wish that I could view this coral in the same fashion as this top down because it's pretty stunning. From the side, you miss all of that polyp goodness. This is one of those PROP corals that I've mentioned over the course of the last year. It's in my tank but belongs to a local group where we grow and auction the coral. Proceeds are used to buy new coral.

    Thanks for looking

    Deep Water Acro

    Project 365 - September 24th, 2016
    This is yet another coral given to me by one of our local reefers. It looks a lot like a Myagi Tort to me. I think I have this coral a bit higher than it needs to be. If I were to lower it, I think I could pull more green out of the base.

    Midnight Stag

    Project 365 - September 25th, 2016
    What this coral lacks in color, it makes up for in the texture of the skin and rapid growth. I recommend you zoom in to really see the detail in this coral. I have this mounted high in the aquarium, it gets flooded with light and flow.

    Humilis Meets Slimer

    Project 365 - September 26th, 2016
    My ORA Slimer has made many appearances over the past 9 months but this may be the nicest shot of it yet. I love the color and detail in the slimer and then the contrast to the Purple Humils really makes it pop. Both of these corals are mounted high and get lots of light and flow.

    Reef Raft - Cherry Bomb

    Project 365 - September 27th, 2016
    This is a coral that I know I'm not getting the most out of. When I bought this from a local reefer, it had a deeper red where the best I can get it is reddish. The secondary mint color is nice from the top but not really visible from the side. If anyone has advice on more/less light, I'm all ears.

    Thanks for looking

    rev - The ORA Slimer is certainly photogenic. Thanks for the view and comment.

    Bronc - Good to hear from you. Thanks for the kind words on the Cherry Bomb.

    Strawberry Fields

    Project 365 - September 28th, 2016

    Tonight's post is of a piece of my Strawberry Fields that I mounted low and in the shade. If you look back over the past 271 posts, you will see many posts of this coral where it's 99% pink with just a hint of the green. When I first bought this coral, it very much looked like this photo. It was being grown under LEDs and pretty low in the aquarium. Needless to say, I mounted a small frag about a year go down low in the tank. It grows super slow but the coloration is very nice.

    Thanks for looking

    It's with mixed emotions that I communicate to everyone that this tank is going up for sale. We are moving to a new house which will not accommodate this tank. Here is a link to the FS Thread here on R2R. If you or anyone you know is looking for a killer deal on a great aquarium, look no farther.

    We are moving mid November so I plan to keep Project 365 alive and well up to that point. I'm planning a new build at our new house so I will transition photos over to the new tank
