Well I got a mangrove, now what LOL. They aren't harmful to sps right? Any nasty tannins or anything that come from it? Have to do some reading tonight, fortunately it will be in my frag tank overflow DIRECTLY next to my window, somewhat under my t5 fixture.

pretty sentimental piece here from Jason fox. This was a frag from a piece that hadn't grown for him for a loong time more or less - fragged to promote growth. Calls it his bad temptation.

Also picked up his venomous, blowtorch, vivid badfish, and his city slicker the week before.

Is this the RR Robinhood?
Nope, just a super nice granny I believe tusi had gotten from aquasd.

The cherry corals piece when I spoke to Brett, he thinks it is the rainbow hyacinthus. Tell you the truth I'm not sure why its named the fuzzy rainbow

Personally I don't think it is, I've seen the ccrainbow table in other peoples tanks and it looks completely different then Greg's piece. I've also seen frags of both that look completely different from eachother so who knows. It's an incredible piece

Yes, it's crazy how the same coral can look completely different under various lights and water parameters.

Super nugget! Took in my buddys blochy, such a curious little booger. Hes about half the size of my fist! Also have a goldflake angel sitting in QT. The goldflake himself Is a coral eater, so I'm obliged to finding him a good home.

Ordering fish for the frag tank, if anyone has suggestions that would be amazing! 80 gallon no sand and little rock. Thank you!
