Encrusting... something question

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I have some seriously nobby rock, and I want to find something that will encrust over it.  I am thinking a super colorful lepto, a couple of cool encrusting montiporas, or a nice cyphastrea or two.  The pockets in this rock are around 1/2" deep, so it needs to be something that has some serious depth to it, or something that can grow across the spans in the rock.  I need to eventually cover an area the size of a football.

 

I guess the other option would be ensconcing it in ricordeas...

 

Any ideas from someone who has tried to deal with this super bump Fiji-esque rock?

Agreed, lepto's are fast.  They're also not good fighters which makes that a good combination.  Monti's can be like a wave of death in some cases.

I have my eyes on a couple of monties, rainbow is one of them.  The tank is rather small so I need to be selective so the tank isn't overloaded.  I also really like the jedi mind trick!
