    I really would like to know also. I really want their watermelon milli, but I am afraid it will not be that intense when I get it.

    The problem with the rainbow acropora is that the Rainbow's color changes depending on lighitng just like with the Pink Lemonade.The piece of coral can develop alot of colors depeding on lighting like the Pink Lemonade.The best type of lighting IMO is about 12 inches from my 250 MH.Kept good color.Not like their picture though,little bit lighter.

    The Watermelon milli is nice.Havent had a problem.I didnt get mine from them,but its just like it.Kept it 20 inches from 250 MH.

    I think it would have good color as the spectrums can be changed around more than with MH.So if you have 6 bulbs,you can include diffirent spec. bulbs to get you color.

    those Reef Exotic pieces have been around for years and all I've seen is that same frag pic. You'd think after all of this time there'd be a colony out there...
