Hello everyone! Just found out about the forum from our lfs here in town. I’m somewhat new to the saltwater scene,  but no stranger to the aquarium hobby. I have a 24 gallon aquatop all in one and working on a reef tank. I picked up some mystery corals today and was hoping to get an ID on them? From what I can find, I have possibly two candy canes, some plate coral, and maybe a couple acans? Any help would be greatly appreciated! I look forward to chatting with everyone.

Welcome! I just heard about this forum from TPA as well, newer to the saltwater scene but have had freshwater tanks. We have a 46g bow tank. We grabbed a 20 and 10 mystery bag, trying to figure out mine as well. Not sure what your corals are, they are beautiful though!

Welcome to the forum ! I knew the minute you said someone referred you to this place it was TPA. Garrett and his crew are fun to visit and he has the nicest shop in Salem. I don’t know if there are other shops there anymore. I remember years ago there was one that was a gun store and a coral store lol. I thought I had the wrong address at first. 

 

You are correct that you got a candy cane or trumpet coral and an acan. I can’t really make out the plate coral from the picture to give you a better id  sorry. 

Glad you found us.

Welcome!  Glad to see another Salem reefer down here.  I think your plate is a pavona cactus coral.  Really neat structure when it grows.  There's a few of us down in the area and you can feel free to give me a shout if you need help.

A belated welcome to you!  Glad Garrett sent you this way as it is a very informative and helpful community.  Good luck with your new foray into reef keeping - it's a hard habit to break once you've started!  Looks like you scored a few nice pieces to get you going... hope they do well for you.
