PS.
Justin,
Where are those Goniastrea pics?

I promise to take a pic tomorow and post. I was experimenting a lil with the placement in terms of lighting. The frag itself isnt worth a drum roll, but man when that thing sizes up, watch out


Kev, Congratulations on starting something sweet we can all appreciate! Glad I could join in the fun

I'll be looking forward to that, Justin.
I really want to see some & how they relate to Favia & PLatygyra.

Hey, you must keep those in reserve anytime things get a bit dull here.
Really, really, very nice specimens. I just never find any that nice. Darn!
Do they keep their color in your tank?

That is sure a pretty piece there, Justin. Did your frag hold its color. I'm asking because no Favid I introduce into my reef ever stays the same color. Ok, I know with Platygyra they just don't like bright light. Which is a bit confusing to me, since I just have regular VHO reef lighting, no MH or anything fancy. One of my Favia have turned dark green, the other ( the green with red polyps paled just a little, but the polyps turned ocher.)

On a related matter, if & when Santa comes through, I'll try to get a pic of my colonies sweepers. Man, they are impressive!

Ya it did change colors when I got it. It got really dark green. Apparently the colors come out if it doesnt get too much light. So I put my frag under an overhange and have noticed since the orange coming out much more.

Finally got my lil frag uploaded, but you'll see I wasnt holdin out the fireworks


different angle, but dirty tank

NOT BAD. I do see what you mean by lighting, the part not in direct light seems to have more color(s) in pic 2. Definitely something to think about.
How are your regarding aggression?

Rich,

Good one. Very nice growth rate.
Whew.. Thought we'd reach the end of the eye candy a few days ago!

That is a nice piece to, Snipersnips. Maybe not flashingly bright, but very nice pastel shade. I've seen an encrusting one like that, but it was the more common green color at my LFS.

Two of mine are on the sand, but one is trying to use the current to get to its neighbor! Cannot quite reach it, but I need to watch it!

Love that red & green one, Saltcreep. Is the last pic a frag of Baby'sbreath?
I was working on a deal to get a small frag of my own but my source has been banned & I've serios doubts about his veracity. Ces't le vie..

Matthew
Very nice pics!

Here's one I just got. Actually, it's my only Favia at the moment.

Any guesses at an ID?
