Before the days of "Walt Disney" acros, there was a species called Acropora tenuis. I still think the WD coral is another A. tenuis, just with vivid coloration like Disney would demand.
The first clam I ever purchased was a blue Tridacna maxima, and it continues to be my preferred species of clams to keep. I'm sure I'll be getting more in 2017.
I spotted this coral during one of my tank tours, and captured this image. Later I had it printed and framed, and it still hangs on the wall when you enter my home. this is an Acanthastrea echinata.
Such a great looking coral, but no-one that got a frag from me kept it alive. Eventually I lost it as well.
The 280g reef ran for almost exactly 6 years. It was my favorite because it did so well and in general filled me with pride. Looking forward to saying the same about my 400g one day.
This gem of a coral seemed to hold its own in the midst of all those lovely zoanthids, making for a wonderful shot.
Loving the channel!
Get newsy stuff frequently.
The last year has been great!
All the reefy things!
