    This acro is such a pain in the butt. I gave up on it ages ago. Good luck to you all!

    I just got the notification from Fedex saying it should be here tomorrow! I added five other corals, so I am excited!

    We are going to need it but if somehow you do get it to color up, it sure is pretty!

    My wife noticed I was awake way before I normally am and asked "why are you up so early"? I told her I had to check fedex and see if my box made it through the FedEx hub. Woohoo, it made it! It's out for delivery!

    My frag browned out a bit. It is entrusting though. Almost has the super glue completely encrusted.

    As a side note, I noticed some rtn on a pink millepora frag this morning before work. Really has me worried. Not sure what caused it yet. I upped the flow from my mp40 yesterday. Put it back to how I had it this morning. I also did a 5 gallon water change before this started. Hope it just affects that one frag.

    Hopefully it's nothing serious and you caught it before anything happens further.

    I ended up buying 6 frags and they all seemed to have browned out besides the Aussie echinta I got. I'm sure they will color up.

    Here's mine after 2 weeks in the tank. Sorry for the phone pic. I really need to dig my camera out of storage.

    Here's a side by side from day 1 to day 13. This frag is also a favorite perching point for my clown goby...I hope that doesn't impede growth. As you can see, starting to encrust over the glue, and darkened up a bit. day-1-13.jpg Day 13 (2).jpg

    I have mine placed under too much light. It’s about a year old. But it’s seriously encrusted so I can’t easily move it. Corals around it are doing outstanding. 89B3F036-8A54-48FA-8B44-C28D6C833699.jpeg

    My BattleBox arrived yesterday full of awesomeness, along with my contest Frag. Adam did an amazing job choosing my new gems. Shipping was a breeze, glad we waited.

    @Crimsonvice I'm glad you decided to mount it horizontally. I'm very curious to see how it turns out!
