    Can someone ID this frag for me? I've looked all over and couldn't find anything on it. I'd like too know what it is because he's growing well and the picture doesn't do it justice, it's a beautiful little frag. Thanks!

    Hey Everyone, I have a brain coral that's not doing good at all. I've had him for about 3 month, and he was healthy, and would swell up when the lights were on. But lately (2 weeks), he hasn't swollen up at all, and its definitely receding... You can see in the pictures that a piece of rock...

    I have had a brain coral that came with my live rock. It seems to be alive but not growing very much. Should I be feeding it mysis shrimp any? I have a Fluval LED Marine & Reef Full Spectrum light. It seems to be keeping the coral alive just not growing much

    Sorry for yet another ID thread. I just don't know what I buy, and the people at the LFS aren't the most helpful. I just thought that this was a good deal. It's kind of blah colored now but they said it should eventually take on a purplish tone. The tentacles are starting to extend and it's...
