    Just wondering if anyone else has this one. I wanted it because of the name really. I spent soooo many hours trying to get past him in Punch Out, lol. Kudos to Adam and his super original names! And what a cool acro!

    I can verify this is Battle approved as well. I've lost several sps frags over the past 2-3 months but not this one. He just keeps doing his thing.

    Since threads need pics, here's the best I could muster with my Galaxy S6 on the fly.

    I knew I remembered seeing one in a for sale thread. This is not my pic and belongs to reefnjunkie.

    I had one, but lost it in my crash. I'll be ordering another when my tank recovers. It was one of my favs.

    It really is a cool piece. I'm not a good photographer, yet. But it has this cool purplish green shimmer to it. I can not get it show in pics at all. Got a buddy coming over this weekend to help me take better pics of my tank.

    Here is mine. I've had it a few months now, and recently just shot that top branch out and has been growing rather quickly since. Not much color yet, but hoping with new growth the colors will come.

    Now that's a good representation of the color I see. Much better pic than mine.

    Yeah it's mostly a greenish/teal for me. Mine is low in the tank around 200 par. Not sure if it needs more light to get all the multi colors, but the growth is good in this spot so I'm going to leave it here for now and see what happens.

    I do not have a par meter and have never mapped the par in my tank. My best guesstimate would be 250 to 350 par. The tips on mine are turning purpleish.

    It unfortunately was a part of the first wave of death that happened during my travels. :(

    Stumbled across this image on Instagram. Not sure if it's the same coral, but looks really similar.
