Got a cracker of a yellow one today, and another type of flowerpot coral proper name unknown at the mo and I got a very nice hammer, bleeding payday madness lol

Keith the Biggest problem with the triton one is that their is no institutions at all on the bottle how to dose apparently after yeh get them to test the water they will advise what to use, I think this is stupid cause you'd have to be getting the test done allot so you can monitor it, so thats ridiculous and apparently that's their biggest income doing the tests, feck that

Just going to order the Kent stuff and the stuff you recommended above or maybe just the stuff above haven't read into it yet

The Kent stuff does look good though 'well easy to use 10ml per 100lr per wk
But again how does one know how much is actually in the tank

Nothing ventured nothing gained in this hobby bud, go for it and if you succeed you'll have a beautiful coral if not then at least you tried

Cheers lads

Only have a green one out their chris and it's not great on one side, I managed to twist keelans arm and give me the yellow from the main tank, it's only half open in the pic really is a cracker

Anyone have a name on the other one not the touch, thus in the flesh really is the bizz never seen anything like it before

Super looking corals Jeff. Middle ones looks like alveopora; easier to keep than goniopora. Also interested how the hammer gets on. Is it a wall rather than a branching hammer?

Cheers mate your spot on it is a alveopora, really really like this one have to say it's a proper eye catcher
