Stylo vs SSC

Stylo took a battering and the Shortcake receded. - Draw

 

Branching Monitopora vs Hydnophora

Surprisingly the monti won this one as Hydnophora tends to kill anything it touches!

 

Seriatopora Hysterix vs Monti plate

Both quick growers with the monti taking over the hysterix from inside out. Sold the beastly fight before I got to see the outcome but neither suffered any damage, it was more of who can outgrow the other.

 

Tenius vs Stag

Stag damaged but killed off a large section of tenius

 

Guttatus vs Gomezi

Guttatus won this one easily, damaging a significant part of the Gomezi

Interesting one here......

Aiptasia vs zoas

Zoas seem to be out numbering the offending aiptasia and trying to smother it will be another good battle I think!

I found aips get in between them no matter how many of them there are and just grow that a bit higher so they can't be pushed out.
