So I was thinking about that this morning and wondering what my favorite would be... Obviously I don't have very many right now but my frogspawn would have to be my favorite right now. It's only been a week since I got it, but I'm convinced it's grow :p

So what's your favorite frag or coral you have, and post a picture if you have one.

i think the monti caps that i got from joel are probably my favorite.
the green has attached to the rock already and there is obvious signs of growth on the edges. the orange isnt growing as fast but it is growing. i'll post some pics when the lights come on.

Wow just one favorite. The whole big picture is pretty amazing... but I'd have to say today... right now... it's probably some of the bright orange zoos. :D Probably something else tomorrow. (of course, this is from my own inventory) there is some real eye candy out there that's simply out of my price range.

Yeah I know how you feel about that. I've seen some of the Steve Tyree frags that are just out of this world... Out of my price range though :P

Chalice corals are some of My favorite! There are just so many different color variations. I can't pick just one though ;)

Chalice is very cool, I don't know if it would work well in my tank though.

What about dendrophyllia or sun corals? They have always looked cool to me but I've heard they are hard to keep.

On that note not to get off topic but when do you guys feed your zoas? I've tried feeding in the evening when the lights are still on and I tried to feed a mix of bbs and regular brine shrimp but they didn't seem to be eating any. My Frogspawn loves the brine shrimp though.

i usually dont target feed anything. ever. but i would like to get these particular ones to grow so im gonna give it a shot. im just going to do it when i feed the rest of the tank. about 6 pm or so.

Yeah, I only have three frags so target feeding really isn't difficult for me :D

I just use the turkey baster to squirt a little around each one. I don't visibly see them eating anything though like I do with the Frogspawn.

Not to get off topic, but I just posted about 30 new pictures of my tank on the Chicoreefclub.com site. MY favorite at the moment in my tank I think is the candlelight acro which is actually from Kyletech that he got at a frag swap, next to that it would be my red zoas, I still need to get a good picture of.

Oh and Kinghokus get a turkey baster or something and actually spray a little food over those Armor of Gods if you want to see some growth, I have already recovered that frag of them plus a few in the time you have had those.
But when I first got mine there were three, and it was slow for a couple months, when they double to six or so, they really started growing.

yeah i saw those pics. very nice. i really like the clam.
the zoos are still at 4 heads but they were knocked around pretty bad by my hermits for a week or 2. they are in a good spot now and seem to be doing well. i'll hit them tomorrow with some food.

My favorites change from week to week, but right now I will have to say it is the orange crush acan we got from Joel.

It has some wicked stingers that it can send out at least 2 inches!

Wow sounds pretty knarly. Orange has always been my favorite color and I would love to get something with some orange for the tank.

My absolute favorite coral is my black sun coral. It only comes out at night right now but it is really nice. Of course I love my orange sun coral too.

I like target feeding and watching them eat, its really cool.
