I'm kind of partial to my fuzzies as well

Just got back into the hobby after a several year absence. This is my first time having corals except for Xenia. Just took this picture of my two month old soft coral/mushroom tank and wanted to show it off.

My 40 gallon Breeder with softies. Always looking to add more. I want more zoas, Xenia, more GSP (yes, GSP...I want the back wall eventually covered in it) and any other softies. This thread really has me interested in so many.

Gah! I forgot about this thread. Now I'm subscribed haha.

Do any of you have a lemon tree coral? I purchased one from liveaquaria and the thing nearly died in shipment. it's only about an inch and slowly recovering.

Just made the jump from FW to SW with a coral only pico.

Green leather toadstool


Freshly cut Yuma straight onto the rock, it was growing on the tank back at the lfs.

Hallzoo, I am completely jealous of that frogspawn. Totally cool. I had one with about 16 heads on it and I thought I was doing well with that.
