    Here's my initial pic. Sorry it took me a minute to post it. Took it after three days of acclimation on rack and then glued in place. Best of luck to everyone.

    Sorry for the late entry photo y’all, month has been hectic with the first shipment being held for a day and the tank sprung a leak shortly after receiving the replacement.

    Took this at my lfs last night while we patch up my system.

    Since I’m technically late I should be disqualified but figured I should send the progress photos.

    Lol, don't scare anyone ;-)

    Well I can see if what I think is good growth can now be compared to others which is very interesting for me! Never have a chance to compare truly due to the fact that corals came always from different sources.

    So the only growth enhancing thing I do (from my experiuence growth enhancing) is actually keeping my Potassium at 410 with weekly corrections as wel I dose some Strontium daily. Like many know, I share openly what I do ;-)

    There is a discussion thread also. It’s in the Battlecorals sponsor forum. We are trying to use this one just for pics.

    After one month in the tank. Can't see it well in the pic but starting to get some green coloring around the base and where the branches are.
