    I spent most of the day working on my 75 gallon reef tank and then started taking pictures. I tried some things that were new for me, and learned a couple of lessons from them in the process. I am planning on adding a whole bunch of pictures to this thread so it will not be very friendly to...

    What is the best coral out there for a filler? I don't want one that will choke or sting the heck out of other corals though. If there even is a coral out there like this.

    I bought a piece of LR about a year ago and saw this, but it was much smaller. I didn't really notice it was alive until I saw it glowing in the lunar light one night. Under my T-5's it has grown considerably, I am guessing some kind of monitpora. Help is appreciated! I like him:agree:
