    My mushroom garden. Especially stoked that my little eclectus finally seems like it will stay out in my show tank after many months back and forth from a shroom box trying to get it to reattach.

    Just like SPR1968, I love my Cultured, Pectinia Alcicornis.

    I have a piece of this from Ben as well and i cannot get it to color up to save my life. Every other acro i have is vibrant and appropriately colored. It has shown awesome growth, but its just bland, not even brown. I have it in a fairly high par area around 400+.

    Where do you have your piece mounted?

    I have mine mounted on a rock on the back wall approximately 6 to 8" below the water surface. My experience and what others have said is this is a very slow developing coral. That's actually how mine wound up on the back wall. It was just kinda meh when I got it. So I threw it back there and forgot about it. After a lot of my tanks ups and Downs, It's manage to survive.

    Also, for a chronological reference, I got this frag back in November 2016. 13 or 14 months to get it where it's at.

    Gorgonia's are some of the "least" favourite corals in majority of reefers system. They add the gentle sway & full bloom polyps unlike any other corals ... sort of like a graceful slow motion swaying back and forth.

    My favorite is my Lobo. It has an awesome feeding response and goes through such a daily morph that it's really amazing to watch. Goes from rock like to almost translucent, jello looking!

    My favorite family of corals are favia and Platygyra brains.

    D98D3ED6-1950-48A0-AD98-F953D2200073.jpeg No one has mentioned Favia and as much as I live all my coral, right now my Favia is my favorite. It has grown through High and low (Nitrates that is),and is stunning under the blues.
