Stunning coral Alfie, how long have you had it and what size was it when you first got it?

I got this in May last year and it was about 6cm. I have to frag it shortly and will look at the local newbies for the frags.

Wow, that's incredible growth, your water quality must be spot on, I really struggle to get any growth out of my pin cushions.

Thats what I love about tunze dispersement of water. The coral is in full flow and enjoying it. My parameters are all within ranges.

Any chance you could upload a small video clip of the flow on the pin cushion?

I will have to get the video camara out sometime for that.
In this tank I have the 2 tinze 4500 l/h with the power head of 5000 l/h and on the opposite side I have a 4500 tunze plus 2 Seieo m1 100's. This picture will give you a beter idea of the size it is.

What a beautiful sarcophyton specimen! I had one of those too previously, but unfortunately mine died Jan 2007 when my tank crashed.....

I have something similar (a different type of sarco) in my tank at present....

Alfie - your tank is looking GREAT, I must add!
