    Vivid's Rainbow Delight acro

    Vivid's Rainbow Delight acro anyone have it color up for them? I have had mine for over 6 months and still brown with a little color in the tips. It grows well it's almost 4" tall with multiple branches.

    I am thinking that it ether needs an ULN tank or it looked super when it came in and thats when they took their pic but then it lost it's color.

    If you have it and it looks anything close to the pic let me know what it needs to color up. If you can take a pic.

    I may see if I can sell mine to someone who runs Zeovite as I think thats the only way for it to reach it's full potential.

    Its a beautiful coral from top down. The tan body with blue/pink tips is pretty standard from what Ive seen...

    Will do Bama. I have not had a nice coral not color up in my tank in along time so just trying to figure this one out. I have tried it in two different tanks and everything from t-5s to 400 watt Helios.

    Bigian I guess I am picky because a tan body and only color in the tip is not good enough. I have to say I was really excited to get it but POO on this. LOL

    Tan is another word for brown.

    Thanks Joe

    I would like to think so but I could be wrong. Thanks for the vote of confidence.

    It looks like one of those corals that will look better in an ULN tank so you never know. I used to have one and sometimes wish I still did. It would be nice to have one of each that way the corals that like ULN can go in there.

    I have seen the mother colony in person from the front viewing it through the acrylic and from top down. I must say that it is one of the nicest and most unusual color combos of an acro I have seen. Not sure why youre is brown. But, it was a very light cream color w the branches all shades of pastel getting brighter and more colorful towards the tips. I had a frag in my tank before I had to sell my tank and it was coloring up very nicely within the first couple months. I ran zeovit so idk if that helped.

    I run zeovit... I wouldn't mind letting it settle in my system and see if the color changes

    The Rainbow delight is coloring up some, it has been in my tank 3 weeks I think. Some of the blues and pinks are coming out in the branches and tips, it will take a while for it to completely color up if I can get it to. Joe, if you ever decide to try another piece let me know you are welcome to get a frag back.

    Indeed very nice! I dont think its needs uln as Vivid doesnt run there display that way but more of just readjusting to lower lights as they run 400w and 1000w next to each other in there display where the mc is at hth.

    Are you interested in selling any frags Sailfish or trading? I have a ULN tank and my only complaint is my red corals look light pink, everything else looks amazing though.

    I have had my piece for about 4-5 months now. It has not colored up but did not brown out. It has a pinkish hue to it. About 20 inches from a 400w 20k radiums.

    Thanks for the offer Tommy. I sold it to Tommy so lets hope he can do better then I did.

    I had it under 400 20k MH.

    They also have WSIWG frag up that looks better then mine did but not as good as the other pic. I am probably just bitter because it did not color up for me.

    I just got two frags of it too soon to tell if its going to color up nice though. I'll keep everyone updated.
    I'll keep my Guns,Money and Freedom. You can keep the "Change".

    Common Sense, Its really not that common.

    New 180 Build w/ 150 gallon sump and 50 gallon frag tank (all one system)

    I don't have it anymore. It was getting about 450 Par around 13" below 400 20k MH then put it in my frag tank were it got 400 Par under T-5s. It had some color in the last .5" off the tips but the rest was tan/brown.

    Why were you able to get it to color up? If so share a pic with us.
