    Does anyone still have this piece? I’d like to see some pictures. @Battlecorals can you share an updated colony pic?

    I know that @bubbaque got a frag of this around the same time I did. I lost mine and haven't noticed an updated pic from bubbaque in a while. Hope he still has it. If he can't grow it, nobody can;)

    Fully encrusted huh? Looks like @bubbaque has had some good growth then! I've been told BellaT is a slow grower.

    I wish! It grows slow for me. I ended up buying two frags from Adam and I traded my first frag to fish finder. I will take a pic of my second frag tomorrow.

    I got one a few months ago when the Sniper Blue Growout contest started. Compared to the Sniper Blue, it's barely growing. Maybe faster than Hellboy, and same or slower than oregon tort. Over the last four months.

    However, mine still looks similar to @Fishfinder. It never really colored up like @PSXerholic, where-as the HellBoy + Oregon Tort had super saturated color from day 1 and to this day

    I have this piece. I got mine the same week Bubba got his original. It encrusted the plug rather quickly for me, and started coloring well. Growth has slowed tremendously since fully encrusting. Barely any vertical growth.

    Edit: I lied. I got this in a different pack in July, not Feb. No matter. It still isn't doing much.

    My one did barely grow compared to many others.

    Hence it may have to do with the temperatures I run.

    I’ve had mine for roughly four months. I’ve had little to no vertical growth, but decent encrusting. Mine has colored up very well looks quite similar to Adams pictures. My piece is in the 275-325 PAR range.

    Tim, yours look to be doing very well. Are they getting blasted with light?

    Maybe 350ish? I just moved one of mine to a new tank on the system with more light, around 425-450

    Here's an updated shot of the one I moved to higher PAR. It is a looker! I did take a frag off of this one, otherwise it would be bigger.
