actually every coral in my tank (w/ exception of one) is technically a "hard coral"...usually means the coral has a hard calcium-based skeleton...and most have fleshy "soft" polyps attached to the skeleton.

"Soft Corals" by definition lack the skeleton and are soft/squishy throughout

clarification: one subcategory of hard corals have the fleshy soft polyps attached - these are referred to as LPS [Large Polyp Stonies] while the other subcategory of hard corals, called SPS [Small Polyp Stonies], have less fleshy/smaller sized polyps and these are the typical "hard" looking corals you will find in many marine photos.

Once again Sam is speechless :lol:

I still can't get over that tank even though I have been following it from post number 1 on N-R.com :huh:

Have you found out if the Kudas are pregnant yet Tigah?

P.S I know I am an '05 Tigah, but '05 really has no chance if you pull off the Tidal pico :P
