I bet your SPS won't grow this fast! [video]

3D printed SPS!

smartwater101 over at ReefCentral decided to use his Flashforge 3D printer to augment his 90 gallon reef aquarium build and in my opinion ended up with two rather nice heads of 3D printed SPS corals. While they certainly don't exceed the more expensive cast models that are available for purchase, the results turned out pretty awesome and it's a cool application of 3D printing technology in our hobby.
