I've got a few and they're not too bad. I've got Acropora, a few different encrusting and plating montiporas, monti spongoides, a couple montipora digitatas, pachyseris, and pocillopora. Come of the montis are pretty fast growing and easy. You just need good light and have the good water parameters. I had some issues recently when my nitrates really spiked. I had some die off, but with diligent water changes and bringing those down, everything looks good now!

Hello everyone ...a few pics of my new 60 cube :) ....it replaces the 45gal,,,has a sump but best of all was a awesome buy! Long story short...lost the majority of the fish in the 45 to marine ich .... I suspect it came into the tank on a new coral...while I was in the LFS getting medication saw this used tank for sale....$400 for stand,tank and sump, refugium light and pump ! I transferred the contents of the 45g into the 60 cube and have been letting things grow....I only have the CUC and 2 fish, black and white wrasse and the pink polka dot gobie that survived the ich :(

I am enjoying the new tank but am somewhat hesitant to add more fish.

Added a Montipora Digitata frag rock...there are green, red, blue and purple polyps on the frag :) and the Bali is still alive and growing! They are very SLOW growers but it is encrusted on the plug and thickened up considerably :)

Hope this satiates your need for a salt fix rush ;)

Love to hear what everyone thinks.
