So does anyone else's Walt Disney look like this. This was a frag from a Walt Disney that looks normal.

Hey man, how do you get that colour out of your WD? I’d love mine to get like yours but has looked like this for a year

It may be in part by "I used a red filter on my iPhone and the light is set at 20k." Also, that is one heck of a mother colony which has had time to grow over years in a stable environment (just guessing:).

There are a bunch of fakes being sold around here and other places. I have 2 WD frags from different vendors and the original is a real one. Got ripped off by a 2500 member on another on this site as part of a frag pack. Caveat emptor.

The colony in my display tank is about 3-1/2 years old grown from a 1" frag. It receives nearly 500 par under the Radion G5 blues. I dose Brightwell Neonitro, Lugals daily, and Brightwell iron daily as well as maintain stable parameters with a Trident and Trident controlled dosing of elements.

Sad fact is my display tank is crashing at this moment. I have had a couple of close calls like everyone does over the past couple of years but I finally hit the bad crash starting last week. I am watching this large colony STN this week (super sad) and i have tried fragging it up and nursing the tank while keeping it stable. I still have most of my corals in a grow out tank so I have to wait for my display tank to stabilize the losses for a bit. The Walt Disney in my grow out tank is much large today and gorgeous right now.

For these pictures, I had my blues cranked up to 20K and used a red filter. The red filter helps the camera on my mobile phone display a more "real life" image from what your naked eye sees. There was absolutely no editing done to the photo and a WD gets more colorful the larger the colony...especially when you are looking down on the colony and have all of the pumps turned off.
