In the first picture, what is the “wall” behind the acro that’s bluish in color? Gorgeous corals!!

I have a moderate fish load but I feed heavy so I need some GFO to keep P04 in check. The N03 stays balanced from my skimmer. I don't use any other export tools.

These are my ballpark targets--
P04- .03-.10ppm
N03- .5- 10ppm

Range between the two 50-200 to 1 nitrate to phosphate

Here's a few branch shots I like--

AquaSD



Palmers



Homewrecker coming along nicely.

Wow the color on your sps are outstanding. They look great.
Thank you

Ed, how often are you changing out your bulbs?
Display with Ice Cap Ballast (overdriven) every 6 months

Frag Tank- 6 bulb Sunpower 10 months

2 weeks after I change them I can always visually see color pop...........this is about when the bulbs have burned in. I believe the corals respond to the spectrum back to where they do best and of course the bulbs are running at their peaks.

There is very little change in par over time, but spectrum shifts.
-----------------------------------------------

Here's a few pics, I'll get more posted later--

Smurfette- I've had this for 3 years and it went dormant on me many times and when it grew it was very slow.

It's finally hitting it's stride with new buds and colors. This is the nicest pink type milli I have ever seen and I've owned and seen all the popular named millis in person. The branch tips have a majenta purple that leads to blue tips and the body is an electric pink.



Wintergreen Delight- I really like the bright pastel green on this and it really stands out if surrounded by some darker colored acros.



Nice branch shot of the Wild Rasberry



Goblin Milli and Utter chaos-- I don't see forest green millis that often. Most are the brighter green. Nice contrast of colors and why I like zoa/palys.......... they can really set off acros.



WWC Bounce- I'm liking the colors under my "white" lights:cool::)

Thanks AGAIN Ed! You convinced me to add 2x Coral+ and 2x Blue+. Did it with an AL fixture with XR30. Next step is to change out the ballasts, but already seeing color and coral improvement. I've NEVER seen corraline grow like it.

Ed,
very beautiful
in those 3 years that you had this frag, did you moved it to different positions or did you just kept it in same place and par level? I want to know how patient you need to be with an acro before moving it to another level when trying to get the best color in it?
