Thanks Matt.  They came on one of my chunks of live rock. Think they are just a pink centered star polyp. I'm getting bored shooting my stuff (since there isn't much yet) so if your or anybody else local wants some shots taken for fun, let me know.

What kind of camera are you using?  You have some skills with a lens.

I think I understand.  I was a photography major for one year.  Sometimes it's not a good idea to mix business with what you love to do.

So here is an updated photo(just over a year now) of the 20h reef.  After suffering badly while I recovered from a broken ankle, it's back up to a much healthier status. And the addition of the new Razor 120w led light makes a huge change.

Looking good. Looks deceptive, good use of space for the smaller tank.

   Filling in nicely ! Glad you like the LED's you got from Bobby at Absolute Coral . Those corals must have some pop with that light.

Nice nano you got going there.  Good luck with the new lights.  Be careful not to burn anything.
