Those are the Hawaiian Pocillopora verrucosa. Absolutely monstrous slower growing corals. They are gigantic now :)
Thanks, that deep red isnt common in most sps. Ill have to find a couple frags.

No, had a frag on its way once and it got in a bad car accident...

I suspect the Bleeding Tree v1 is very similar, super thick spiny abrotanoides/robusta type. Until someone puts in the years to grow them out side by side and see how the growth forms line up, the world may never know :)

After some impressive persistence and patience from @ReefBum , he finally has me on the hook for a live YouTube chat this Sunday at 7pm. Prepare to witness my mental and physical salt creep on display for all the world to see...

im in.. whats the topics

Your guess is as good as mine! Haha...I'm assuming reef tanks, but maybe it is about how excited I am for the new season of the Mandalorian. Not sure if you can ask questions in real time or not, @ReefBum ?

Yes, real time........................ I'd recommend reefers go watch some of his past videos. Keith has some great guests and some very good info.

I am psyched to have Tim on the show! I have many questions to pepper him with about how he likes to run a reef tank and how he has achieved success with SPS. And yes, questions in real-time from the live audience are welcome!

Thanks Ed! I really appreciate those very kind words from such an accomplished reef keeper as yourself.

I am not good at sharing images of my tanks. I'm terrible at keeping glass clean. I really enjoy seeing corals grow out into healthy colonies from small frags.

On that note, this 36x36x18 tank was set up first in 2010, moved to a new house in 2012, and nearly crashed (due entirely to my neglect) in 2013. After the near crash it was consolidated into one system with an older SPS setup, and the whole thing has evolved into a sprawling ~730 gallons across 7 aquariums and a stock tank.

I tragically lost a stunning ~18" blue squamosa that I cherished at the start of this year, but that has freed up almost 1/4 of the tank to adjust the aquascape. I'm still not quite sure how exactly I want it laid out towards the back left, but I'm really liking the interplay of color and form of the Skinny Love/24k Leptoseris/Hawaiian Pocillopora combo through the middle. This shot is taken from the right side looking across towards the left side, so the front panel of the tank is the one in the left of the frame.

Enjoy :)

Sorry for your loss! That was one lovely clam.
