Wow the yellow one is hot
I have yellow one also but yours looks
Interesting if my green yellow one can be like yours. The polyps now is brown and the yellow is more green. Any suggestions to get more yellow and red polyps?Thanks! The thing I like about that one is it's contrast under full spectrum. The base is a deep blue that turns greenish as the yellow comes in. Under blues the yellow still pops, but you lose the blue base a bit. The polyps were more red than maroon, but I have high N/P and feed a ton and they darkened a bit. It is a cool piece.
The Spec's are a very intersting one if you ask me. Underrated for sure,but because its "newer" imported species I feel like it doesn't appeal to everyone. From what I am hearing its not nearly as hardy as the belowed Tenuis which I feel like is hard to bwleat with the 14000+ colors it comes in lol.
Does anyone know who the first to import one of these way ?

I think that the tenuis is harder to keep the colors and more sensitive “not all of them” but lot of them.I don't know the first for sure, but I believe the flaming sunrise was one of the first to garner attention. I believe that was under the care of candy corals in Canada.
I think you're correct in that they're more sensitive than many tenuis.
The yellow has deepened in my system with time, and originally looked similar to your photos.
I had to frag the colony to save parts of it this past summer as the colony had developed an infection. I was able to save a few pieces. Currently I have a piece at 330 PAR and another at 470 PAR and the colors are frankly similar. I run 250 W Radiums and T5. I also feed a lot. My measurable nutrients are at nitrates 5-10 and Phos 0.1-0.2. Truthfully, I don't have great insight on whether it is a parameter that draws the yellow out or if it is the coral itself.
