    Wow, that first pic is awesome. I never thought GPS can be such agressive growers that they actually embed themselfs into other corals...
    I will have to keep an eye out on mine...:whistling:

    Thinking maybe I should move my candy cane or the favia as they seem to be too close to each other.
