Can someone please tell me what this is? Also it started out as 2 heads and is now this. However, it hasn't left the Coral Plug. Is that Normal?

Looks like Orange Bam Bams. Hard to tell. Is it very bright Orange with a darker orange?

I was thinking bambams too. Hard to say about staying on the plug. I've seen zoas do this before and eventually they start growing down the sides. Congrats on the growth they look great

I was going to guess BamBams as well, but look a little browned out. ??? What light are they under?

It is the camera on my phone. I run a six lamp T-5. I am not sure if this is a good light. Some people say yes and others say no. I want to go with LED's, but I have no idea what I would need for a 46 gallon bow front? I have seen some people talk about DIY but I am not a handy man.

T5's are great, I had great color and growth under them... Maybe it's just a dark photo, my T5's were screaming when I had them. Here are some BamBam's under just 4 t5 bulbs:

Holy cow! Those are awesome! Yeah the picture doesn't do the corals justice at all. With T-5's am I limited on the Corals that I can keep? Am I able to keep SPS, LPS things like that?

Depends on your tank, filtration, etc, but yes if you have High Output T5's, they will grow anything.

I want to get it drilled. I can't find anyone that will drill it while it has water in it. Question for you. If I drained the tank and got it drilled would I have re-cycle the tank?

Depends on if you keep everything you take out of the tank... How big is it?

You can drill it with the water in it, just have to be careful and fast:yesnod:

Piece of cake, get a couple trash cans, move the rock into one with some water, the rest of the water and fish into another, "drill baby drill" plumb and refill. Should be done in a couple hours tops.

So I would just have to buy a drill bit and the bulkheads and the plumbing?
