the bottom left two stalks look to be colored correctly for it.. see how the body is kind of a green color (jade) and the coralites are pink?

looks sweet so hard to get good pics to show how cool some of your pieces are.  After searching all over for Tyree pink jade I dont think it exists but there is a tubs pink jade I think that might be what you have

we will have to ask crystal to figure out for sure what the coral is and if she can give us a link of what it is and where its from. i got it from her, so she should know what it is.

Alright I got some new full tank shots last night and thought I would share. I really like taking pics at night because you get a whole lot less glare. Frags are still small but they are growing steadily. It will be a while before they actually look like corals instead of my tank looking like a frag tank.







And I got another pic of the new Trachyphillia. Come on all you lurkers let me know what you think.

It's coming along great. I'm so surprised how small things look in that tank. Its changed a bit since I seen it when I got some food from you.

You asked for FTS and you got them. Ya, the tank is changing a lot right now. I am adding a bunch of new corals and every week it seems, there is something new in the tank. At some point it will get full, of course I want to leave room for everything to grow in.

I really like the new corals. Is it easy to frag those?

Jesse, yes you can frag them, but it is just starting to be done, and is too risky for me to try. I might try it out on a less expensive coral, but I wouldn't want to risk it on these. And dont believe Andy, you dont use a chainsaw, you use a bandsaw, with water injection.

Crystal, thanks for the links, that one on R2R looks nice. I didnt really know what I was getting when I bought it from you.

This is an amazing tank and a very good build thread.  These are tank setups and build threads that tempt me to try my hand at a salt tank. 
I really like the Starphire tanks and the dims of these tanks.  36" deep is a great depth.
I'll be watching the progression.  Thanks for sharing.

Thanks man. I have seen some of the tanks you had up for sale lately and was seriously temped to buy the big ones, but then you have to buy lights and pumps for it, and I would rather just devote my time to this setup right now. I just setup a new frag system and that has been a lot of work too. You are welcome to come check it out in person and have a beer with me if you would like.

I am here to answer questions. Plumbing can either be a major pain, or really simple and clean...depends on how you go about it. What beast are you speaking of?

Working on gathering up the rest of the stuff to do a 225 in wall, with fish room behind the tank. Lighting and pumps are what's killing my budget now (besides the usual bills and girlfriend expenses LOL)

Ya I hear you. Costs can build up pretty quick. If I were you I would not skimp on pumps. Reeflo pumps are the best/most efficient on the market and I highly recommend spending the extra up front, and saving money in the long run with electricity. I replaced 5 pumps with 1 reeflo pump. The 5 pumps were: return for 200g, return for frag tank, skimmer feed pump, 2x recirc skimmer pumps. Good luck on the build and let me know if you have questions. FYI, there is someone selling a reeflo pump in the classified section right now.

Sorry everyone for being gone so long and not updating. I took a trip to Egypt and am just getting back into the swing of things and decided to do an update on my tanks. Thankfully everything survived during my trip and I was very happy to see all of the growth after being gone. (You really notice it when you aren't looking at them every day) I am getting more and more frags and some things are growing in nicely. Some corals might have been placed too close together and are starting to kill each other off. Here are some FTS pics. I still cant get the color right, the blue seems to wash out all of the corals' color and I cant seem to fix it with my white balance.
