That formation of the bottom pic of yours is very nice. How big is that across?

Very nice! Did the red one grow that way naturally or did you frag it and stack them one above the other?
The orange cap is about 16" across I have made many frags of it but it grows like a weed.

Regards,
Kevin

It is stacked one above the other. The whirl in the middle was part of the lowest colony where the big empty space is near the left, it grew within 3" of the glass and I accidentally fragged it when cleaning. I wanted to frag off a big piece like that, but honestly I didn't have the nerve to, so it worked out for the best. The one at the very top was just a sliver of a frag that broke off the main colony in transporting it home. It's amazing how fast these grow.

That orange colony is awesome.. 16"! I wish I had the room to let something grow out like that, my tank is only 19" deep. :)

Wow! All those Montis looks so full and beautiful! Here is mine. You can see where the Candy coral was stinging it and then it was moved away from it! :(
