My first corals which I just purchased today!!!

Trachyphyllia geoffroyi



Platygyra sp.



Is that okay in the rocks or should it be placed in the sandbed?

Fluxion,
I would keep an eye on that brain. It looks a little bleached out and appears that it was damaged at that area where the skeleton is getting exposed. Keep the water quality up and make sure to feed it enough.

I picked this big boy up at a LFS for $60. It is easily the size of a muskmelon.



This poor guy is only the decline every since I had a light explode over the frag tank.



My first two brains



We call this one lips
