    What about a brain or a bubble or a green pearl bubble.

    A green branching hammer or a torch coral would also look preety sweet there to.

    Be careful not to put anything that puts out long tentacles or sweepers ( this is at night time too) as they may get sucked onto the powerhead intake. I wouldn't put any LPS near it. I wouls day a leather perhaps.

    That purple unknown thing (some sort of a tree leather) that Ivan has in the soft coral section for sale might do the trick there.

    John,
    That's a Kenya tree. That coral will grow long and lanky under average lighting. They will grow full and bushy ( much nicer this way) under stronger lighting. It too has the potential of being pulled into the intake if too close to it because they expand a lot during the day when the lights are on..., and it grows "very" quick!! Harder to trim than a leather because it is somewhat firmer. The purple is not it's normal color ( I had spoken to Ivan about this quite awhile ago and he said it was already losing the purple and going back to it's normal brown coloring).

    Thanks a lot there Toutoche. Didn't know all of that. I kind of figured that the purple coloration wasn't normal, but I have to admit, it looks really neat. I think I'll be pm'ing you in the future if you don't mind for some advice on coral selection for the new tank.
