    Leptastrea is a coral I find fascinating and one that I'm surprised isn't more popular.

    I picked up this guy at a coral convention in June. I had originally placed him further back in the tank and I could never get great vids. I decided to pop him off his old perch and move him to the spot where my two micromussa corals had waged battle. The coral didn't really care for being man-handled and moved, but is already showing some good colors and polyp extension just two days after being moved and re-glued.

    Sped up a good portion of the video so you could get to see it eat most of its food without having to sit through over 9 mins of footage haha

    Thanks!

    What was really interesting, but lost in the time lapse, was all the little critters that came out of the rockwork. They are so small and move so quickly that they are just brief blips in the clip above, but in the original video you get to see dozens. I'll try to edit the original (which is over nine minutes long) down to just a minute or two later today so you guys can see what I'm talking about :)

    That was such a neat video! Is the purple and green coral on the left a trumpet?

    It is a micromussa (lots of folks still call them acans, though). I see a lot of similarities between some micromussa and the trumpet/candy canes :) This one looks a bit weird because I had glued it to a little sea shell so it is growing into a small ball instead of flattening out.

    nice video! Leptastrea are one of my favorite corals, I have two types in my reef tank (brown with green centers, and the orange-golden variety, very similar if not identical to the type you have).

    That small colony you have will encrust that entire section of live rock if given the chance.
