    They all say it grows slow but I have a red stylo, burnin bananas, and sunset and they all grow pretty fast in my opinion. I got those all only a few months ago and made 3 or 4 frags of each plus enough to put some in my main tank.

    I didn't think that would last long. Did you have to take out a second mortgage?:)

    Needless to say, I've given up on keeping track of bills. My credit score hasn't dropped yet so I'm only a little worried. lol

    The Stylos are quickly becoming favorites for me and the Looney Tunes is simply awesome! I was able to pick up a sunset stylo at FFM from Jason Fox and I've already have seen some nice growth. Hats off to you for taking that plunge. So worth it, IMO.

    Nice!! Want one but can't come up with a good enough excuse to tell my wife. Actually I have a few but I know I have a tell that my wife picks up on. Awkward it only happens when coral is involved. Oh well Gratz on the piece.

    Sometimes in pics they look similar, but in person or side by side there is a big difference. The polyps are tiny and many more on the stylo. They are like 10 times the size on cyphastrea and spaced out much more. The stylos also get crazy colors popping when they are happy where most cyphastrea is somewhat muted aside from the alien one and meteor shower.

    That's why I take care of all our finances. The only downfall is the bankruptcy will be my fault and tough to explain. Lol
