Hey James...the Monti's ARE SPS! Don't worry, I won't shoot! I do actually have a puple Digita. It has some pretty cool baby blue Zoo's on the rock it is attached to...let me know if you want pics of that guy, and I will up load them on Tuesday with the rest.

Sounds good, I will add it to my list of pictures to take. I only have one small frag of it (about 2"), and I can't find a good place to put it in my tank, so I can part with it...the baby blue zoo's on it are pretty cool...I will try to make sure those are in the pic as well

I think Monti's are indeed SPS. In fact, at the risk of putting my foot in my mouth, I know they are SPS.

I'd like to get some digi from you, bu won't be able to make it down there to pick them up. But if you post a tasty pic, I may change my mind and make a run down there.

Garrett, I am done with your heater. I bought a new one.

OK on the heater, if I have my tank going and you get a Monti I think I owe you a frag sit so I can do it for you till you have a chance to come down.. I will have about 80-90 gallons in it by tomorrow night so it is getting close!!!

If I don't have my tank going I think Cammie is going to keep them for me. The only thing is I am not sure about the sps because she only has T-5's would they keep in there???

They'll do fine under T-5's, but water params and movement need to be there too. I am probably going to pass on this order. I already ordered some others that I posted about.

Digitata's are some of the easiest and most forgiving SPS out there. Definitely an introductory coral.

OK, I will add the Packers to the list as well. I have plenty of those. I will add those to the list.

Correct me if I am wrong, but this is what I have (I think) to take pictures of:

Pink Bird's nest
green Bay Packer Zoo's
eagle Eye Zoo's
Purple Digita
Green Monti Cap w/ lavendar rim (Lineage from GARF - GARF.org)
Radio Active Dragon Eye Zoo's
Wammin Watermellon Zoo's
Torch Coral
Green Star Polyps
Blue/Purple/Red Zoo's

I think that covers it...if there is something that you wanted to see, let me know.

I have T5's, and the light is perfect for SPS, I have a lot of growth from mine

OK, so here are the pictures that I promised. I have also decided to sell my Kenya tree, so if anyone wants that, I am asking $15 for it.

It is about 8-9" tall, and pretty close to starting to drop frags, but I can not find a spot in my tank with little flow, thus it is getting blown all over and not happy.

On to the pictures:

Eagle Eyes - $1/polyp (Min 20)


Brown/Green monti Cap w/ Lavendar rim - $30 for about 4"x4" piece


Purple Digita w/ Baby Blue Zoo's - $35 (there is about 20 Zoo's on it)


Wammin Watermellons - $10 - Only have 10 Polyps right now - You will get some on a rock, not on this frag plug


Green Bay Packers - $1/polyp (Min 20)


Pink Birds Nest - $15 for 1-2" size


Torch Coral w/ Pink Tips - $10/Head


Radio Active Dragon Eyes (Bad Picture) - $1/polyp (Min 20)


Long tenticled Green Star Polyps - $15 for 1-2" Piece


PBR's (Purple/Blue/Red) $1/polyp (Min 20)


Here is what I have so far, please let me know if you need to modify this at all. I still have a few of the Monti Caps that are available, and the Kenya Tree

Home_Depot: Total $45 ($80 pending confirmation on Digita)
Torch Coral
Hot Pink Birds Nest (SPS),
Wammin Watermellon Zoo's/Eagle Eyes
Digita/Zoo's - Pending confirmation

Swanwillow: $75
20 each of the zoanthids
- Eagle Eyes -
- Blue/Purple/Red
- Green Bay Packers
- GSP

They are under T5's - 10K/460nm bulbs, so pretty white

The Monti Cap is gone. I don't think anyone was looking at that, but I thought I would mention it just in case

I have to cancel out the ones I wanted-money is just too tight here for now. Sorry though!

That works for me, it looks like we will be leaving around 11:30, so we should be up there about 3:00 or so. My mom lives right next to the new HS on HWY 2, so if you want to shoot me directions from there that would be cool...I would still love to see your tank.

My tank is still not looking too happy. We noticed the temp was a little low. The two heaters we have in the the tank and sump weren't keeping up with it I guess. Jason insulated the sump to use some of the heat that pump puts off yesterday and we're hoping that will help. The mini cycle looks to be done already but not totally sure. I'd love to still get those frags but maybe you want to check things about again before we decide that's where they should go, Garrett?!

If it is a heat regulation thing, it should be fine...how long has your tank been set up for? Do you have any inhabitants in it currently?
