Here is the tank now. I've had it for a 1.5 years. Had a minor setback when i bought the Iwasaki 175W SE MH and didn't acclimate them properly. I lost a large green birds nest SPS and i only have a small frag of the mother colony now. Also my purple cap took a bleach hit as well as my red cap.

Anyway, here are some pics of the corals.

Red cap....pink still but getting darker

that leather you ask about actually looks like a kenya tree. I would move that favia up to more light...it looks like its dieing...(I could be wrong).

all in all, pretty nice. no fish?

I second the "looks like a kenya tree", tanks looking good. Thanks for the pics.

The favia is doing fine, it was getting too much light and started to bleach out a bit and turn purple. I lowered it and feed it often, it wants to eat every night!

Thanks

Looks good. I'm interested to see what those zoas do in your tank. I got them from Derek and they had fallen behind something in his tank and were pretty drab. They were just starting to color up, with that little green ring around the middle.
