    Holy smackers Batman! I could've sworn it was white. Glad to see it's starting to color up.

    Looking amazing. Really nice additions
    If you don't mind, where did you get both types of anthias? LFS or somewhere online?

    I am curious if anyone had dead corals and liverocks out of the water for a few months and placed back into the tank come back alive?

    Can corals survice this ordeal?

    A had a assumed dead goniopora "rock" reused from a heap in the garden and used it as a pedastal for my duncanopsammia.

    After a few days it turned out a surprise.

    hey Glenn,

    Hope you're doing well sir. I never would believe it could be true, but nature does have its ways of throwing us curveballs. If this is truly the case you could be on to a new discovery thanks to this wonderful hobby we all enjoy so much! Curious, wondering if you threw that Goni skeleton out because you thought it was dead, originally?

    Perhaps a university or some other research lab would be interested... :)

    It seems nature have it's way in conserving live.

    After my tank has outgrown itselve with corals the lower sections became overschadowed, which created a problem for corals underneath.
    Due to light and flow limitation the base died
    So i did a rescape and remove all (assumed) dead sections and tossed them on a heap in the garden for later use.

    Coral surviving after 4 months sitting outside in a rock pile in the Netherlands... that's crazy talk. :D

    Amazing if that's what has in fact happened... I'm staying tuned here. :coffee2:

    This is extreme, already reefers have come forward with corals that were asummed dead for months that came back to live once conditions improved.
