mathew,
thanks for the compliments. some of these pieces i have had almost forever. some via good trades. come to reef a polza in oct =).(scmas.org) more then welcome to come by. i get a lot of visitors when the frag swaps are in town. i just need to stock the fridge better when people come by.
my "Nice Favia" is soon to be evaluated by steve tyree himself. he was eyeballing it bigtime the last time he was by.
i will try to shoot a few pics in the next day or two of the remaining collection=)

Wishntoboutside,

Thanks, I'll try to do that.

Hey guys, speaking of pics, can anyone give me some advice on how to hook up a Samsung L830 Digital Camera to a Dell Inspiron 531 PC?? I'm totally lost, the bloody manual is about par for the course these days. I have like 6 ports I can stick the prong on the camera's USB cable into, but not a clue to which is correct. One of the available microphone ports? (My old Dell came with that one). Any of you whiz kids know the answer? HELP!!

Sincerely,
Matthew
PS.
You have MORE? Maybe you can blow Kev out of the water! LOL.

Nikde123,

Now that is a cool shot. Nothing looks better than LPS corals under actinic lighting!
Ah Kev, are you admitting defeat? LOL!

You guys the picture does not do it justice. The green is the most crazy neon thing I have ever seen. I tried to bump up the saturation a bit to make it look more real to life, but it doesn't even come close.

I'm not sure if this is one. I picked it up from the frag bin in my local LFS. Or could this be a montastrea?

Thanks SteveOhh,

It really looks like that...It's a bit scary of they can grow that big

Luckily they grow slowly upwards ( 3to5mm per year)
Time will tell...

I snapped this picture after this favia killed a monti plate frag that I had growing a little too close... the plate is now just a skeleton about 2 1/2 inches across with 11 little plates growing off the sides......a casualty of war......
