Soft corals are underappreciated

By Leonard Ho - Posted Jan 25, 2017 09:00 AM
I am as guilty as the next reefkeeper who shuns soft corals in favor of stony corals. But when I see a soft coral reef tank as beautiful as MikeC's aquarium, I'm forced to reevaluate my preferences.

You'd be hard pressed to convince me that a SPS or LPS tank is much (if any) more colorful thank MikeC's reefscape.  When you add in the sway of soft corals and the feathery glow of all the tiny soft polyps, what I see is a heavenly, dreamlike reef that only soft corals can produce.
