    Since I'm lying in bed fighting a severe TMJ flare up and unable to turn my head, I may as well start this addendum to my new tank thread in the cube tank section.
    This is just a place for me to catalog and record growth for all the sps in my new 20in cube ( before I forget which ones are which lol)


    Most will be things that I get as gifts from friends ( My friends are not stingy; the frags are intentionally small. No sense risking big chunks in a new tank).

    Sanjay's Acropora robusta (this thing is awesome) Photo under 10k halide while I was acclimating it

    And last but not least, Sanjay's Red Photon also under 10k

    Thanks! The flame is nice, but the Red Photon is the real star of the show. Since it just turned 2018, I'll set off a firework & show one of those blue-led-with-orange-filter pics of the mother colony :). HAPPY NEW YEAR 20170527_223516.jpg

    Thanks everyone!
    The tank is lit with 2 Radion gen2 pro LEDs. One is mounted at about a 35° angle to the surface, the intention being to get more color development on the growth that is facing the glass, rather than just the surface (and to let me throw light into the caves & overhangs they'll create in time). The second one is mounted normally. The angled light turns on in the morning & trades with the second light in the afternoon, mimicking the progression of the sun. For about 10 minutes each day, both lights are on full blast. It's glorious! lol

    Awww, I'm sorry.
    Yes, the Red Photon does indeed have all those colors, as you can see in the 10k frag pic, but that was a "just for fun" photo for new years (I personally hate orange-filter photos). The filter makes it pop a bit more than real life.



    Here's a straight-from-the-cellphone pic (or rather, one of 30 or 40 tries lol) under actinics sans filter, which of course washes it out with blue & makes the colors a little duller than real life. The true colors are somewhere in-between. 20171010_231047.jpg



    I suck at taking pics, and it's too close to the surface for Sanjay to capture it with his fancy camera, so, for now, the only way to see it true to life is to see it in person. :-(

    I'm probably tempting fate by catloging everything with pictures as I get it, but oh well.
    Acros are encrusting nicely, everything is holding color, though admittedly the green Anacropora is a bit pale from being overlit. It will just have to adapt lol.

    On to the new stuff. Now that I know the tank will grow coral, I'm willing to risk some of the nicer stuff my friends have been holding for me.

    Under Radium 20k while acclimating:
    20180115_045228.jpg Sanjay's Blue Spruce
    20180115_045250.jpg WWC Barnstormer
    20180115_045304.jpg One of my old babies returned to me. Red true table acro with blue rim. Much thinner & tighter table than the PC superman types.
    20180115_154140.jpg A "frag" of Randy Donowitz's awesome green table.



    Under Ushio 14k (10k)

    Oregon tort
    Screenshot_2018-01-15-06-05-43.png ReefGen Blueberry Fantasy. apparently this is pretty hard to get nowadays. It's basically a teal & blue version of the purple monster.


    And finally, on the left next to the other blues, my baby has returned to me! Tony's Cookie Monster

    Well enough. Things are encrusting along. There's just not much to report after one month lol.

    I should really buy a camera :p. It's just so hard to justify spending ( a ton of perfectly good coral) money on a camera that I'm only going to use to photograph corals :p
