    mixing flame and coral beauty together

    i decided two days ago to tansfer my cb from my softie tank to my sps mix reef, which also housed a flame angel. at first, the flame angel wasnt very happy. as of today, the flame angel seems to tolerate the cb a bit more. i hope this works out, and will post pics once they get along better.
