Thanks Brian.

The trumpets certainly add a pop of color to the tank. And they are very prolific. I have more than I know what to do with.

I've got a basic red, the neon green, and one that's kind of a peach color with purple polyps.  They seem pretty hardy.

Sir, you and I will need to talk about a friendly trade\buy. I would like to acquire a small frag of this one if possible :)

Well that's up for debate it is deep purple through base and has neon green eyes, my friend that gave it to me said he thought it was a purple people eater but I think it's a grape ape...... Might be bias.  It's a good looker.

These are near the surface of the tank. The second is green with blue dots, but appears reddish in the digital image. Digital controlled lighting cause the digital camera to see things differently than the eye. Maybe it is only my eye?

your "green with blue dots" sounds like a Blue Polyp Monti cap.

Really like how some of the Montis are REACHING upwards. My caps always seem to spiral

Its only a 55g, looking to get a 125+ (6ft tank, trying to find the right deal) soon, but i love to buy and sell stuff, really like trading with locals too (west side of cincy). I think im going to frag some of the sunset soon, its just way too big for my tank.

Here's a pic of my Green Monti Spongodes. I had to blow a little stream of water at them to get the polyps to close so the green showed up a little better.

Thanks for posting erky!

Just picked up a setosa back in October myself. I really like it but haven't noticed it in a lot of tanks
