Well finally got the 50gal rimless tank up and running. here are a few pics deftly the least amount of rock I 've ever used. only 7 pieces of rock. any thoughts on aqua scape? more rock less rock rearrange ? http://i1158.photobucket.com/albums/p610/Larrypueblo/DSC_0097_zpss4q8b3fp.jpg (http://s1158.photobucket.com/user/Larrypueblo/media/DSC_0097_zpss4q8b3fp.jpg.html) http://i1158.photobucket.com/albums/p610/Larrypueblo/DSC_0090_zpspu0nlsi1.jpg (http://s1158.photobucket.com/user/Larrypueblo/media/DSC_0090_zpspu0nlsi1.jpg.html)

Looking really good.

Since you asked, I think if you added another piece of rock that comes out from the big one on the right, and let it flow towards the eye, it will bring the viewers eye from in a flow from the bottom up, and then to the corals you end up putting on the top of it. If you have a piece that makes a gradual build from low to high, and especially if you have one that curves a little towards the front and left, it would smooth the hard edge on the right. However, you could accomplish the same sort of thing in with a couple of corals. If you place something high on the right, it would tie in with the cave you have on the lower left, using the rule of thirds from photography. Imagine a horizontal line at each third of the tank and a vertical line running each third of the tank. Your cave would be close to the intersection of two of those lines, and the high point on the right would be at another. That gives balance.

Ive seen mine do something similar when it's laying down alot of new skeleton but never that much inflation. Acans will do that as well when they run out of substrate to grow laterally.

How long are the polyps usually when it's happy?

In that case I would say give it some time and don't worry too much. It's prob just inflated so it can put down some calcium underneath. Just keep an eye on it and watch for any receeding tissue or signs of bacterial infection. I'm pretty sure it's good but you never know 100% with corals.

It's a bounce Goni. Sell it for $2,000 asap. No, name it something stupid after a movie that is coming out and jack it up to $3,000.

Does the Goni look healthy ? what about the color? these are the 1st Goni I have tried the little red one seems to be getting a lot of new growth and I see new little polyps on the greenish colored one as well please feel free to give any advice or thoughts.http://i1158.photobucket.com/albums/p610/Larrypueblo/DSC_0147_zpshqao8h7g.jpg (http://s1158.photobucket.com/user/Larrypueblo/media/DSC_0147_zpshqao8h7g.jpg.html)http://i1158.photobucket.com/albums/p610/Larrypueblo/DSC_0149_zpsc1o8166e.jpg (http://s1158.photobucket.com/user/Larrypueblo/media/DSC_0149_zpsc1o8166e.jpg.html)http://i1158.photobucket.com/albums/p610/Larrypueblo/DSC_0148_zpsw30raioq.jpg (http://s1158.photobucket.com/user/Larrypueblo/media/DSC_0148_zpsw30raioq.jpg.html)

They both look plenty healthy to me. Color looks normal too, depending on the way they looked when you got them. Since everything seems to change little from tank to tank, light type to light type, everything looks just right.

They look good to me! Great extension on the green one!

Agreed. Looks great. I can never get the polyps to extend like that. Good work.

Great thanks guys ! if these make it think may try a Goni garden and get some other colors fingers crossed . I know these Goni's are hard to keep .been feed once two twice a week using Reef-Roids and polyp booster, if there something better or suggestion tricks ect ect please chime in.
