    Sometimes the common name stops at the street when you leave the LFS!!!

    Awesome idea you have there, Pwny. I agree with Paul about the wiki like feature. Then all you would have to do is keep incorrect info out of it.

    Cool site,
    I'm wondering if down the road, when you have 100's of corals per category, you may want to change the way you organize the interface. For example you'll have a huge lists of names, but why not put a small picture beside each one for people that just want to look for a cool looking coral instead of having to click on every single link.

    Great idea, i'll try and send some pics this weekend. Also a good idea to click on those little links at the bottom (ads), whether you need stuff or not to help support the site.

    2/3's of the care tips are on the site i still need to do LPS stuff ill get to it a bit later I’m still working on a improved nav system for the site, i haven’t found one just right yet. I'll finish up working on care tips later tonight or tomorrow and a little more content. If people want anything else added to care tips let me know please or if you have picture’s for coral you want featured on the website let me know, it could use a lot more of everything especially sps. [email protected] is my e-mail for submitting pictures.

    Ok one more update I changed the nav so its pictures then you can click them to get to their care tips and such. I will be playing with it a bit more later to try and get the names to show up over the corals still and see if there is a way to add spacers to it. Let me know what you guys think of the new nav setup, I’ll get the LPS care tips up tomorrow I got sidetrack playing with the nav.

    Ok so I have finished all current coral care tips, keep sending me corals and I will update when I can! Also I changed the navigation to picture’s to try and improve the system but it still isn’t what I would like it to be. Feel free to give me feedback on the Website and I will do my best to improve it. This is still a work in progress but I feel like it has a good base to start from now. Thank you to all that have helped to support the site so far.
