Man, that poor Royal Gramma needs some friends. One of the very few fish you can mate up in your display tank. Unfortunately, you have to make sure you do not end up with two males, which is tricky.

Love the baby orange rfa too bad they grow so slow at first. I have alot of them that pop up I think lsuhunter ended up with one in the macro I gave him I dont even know what color. I get a mix of blea ones and ultras. Did that baby come from one of your old ones? Are you planning more rfa for the tank?

That’s !! I want a skull like that. Where did you buy it ?

I had the skull made. It was supposed to be a castle greyskul motif but liked it better this way! Couldn’t figure out how to put the sand fall in there because of the layout of the scape…

This is what we never realized every reef needs! You need to get something encrusting it :cool:

I wanna get a pectinia in there. Not sure how much further on encrusting though. My a skittles bomb

Cyphastrea would look nice and it’s not expensive

Leptastrea too or montipora or an encrusting pavonia.
I think he is too high and lighting is way too direct for these. Although and encrusting montipora could work.

Same here. Cyphastrea has bleached on me if the lighting is too high.

How about a Stylocoeniella? A different color type. These are encrusting and do well in high light. No idea what you PAR is, but since you are only inches from the water surface, I don't think it will be a problem. Since you are near the top of the tank, these won't branch.

I have some burning banana stylo you can have for free to put up on top to encrust it.
