I have been growing out this frag as a backup since my upgrade in case my main colony died from the move. Someone ordered an Aquatic-man frag from me and instead of cutting a new frag I figured I would give him my backup frag. He's going to be in for a surprise as this thing should turn into a colony in no time.

Sort of top right, 3 white or light polyps, they are about to take off, very nice. :)

I never had the insanity, unfortunately. I think only a couple people got frags of it. I never see Vivid post about it anymore so hopefully they still have it.
I've got it, and it's amazing. The colors on it are stunning. I'll try to get a pic, but it's in a tough spot.

I just got a frag of this from CC, and I think it's going to be one of the nicest Tenuis out there.
I agree! It’s really nice even under whites. The pic they shared today of it was awesome.

I’m far from 0, haha. A month or so ago I was close to 50 ppm. I have been doing water changes and growing chaeto to reduce that number and I think I’m about 15ppm now with po4 at .11.

I never in my wildest dreams thought I’d have numbers like this but it has showed me it’s not something to be feared and it doesn’t cause brown corals.

Here is my test when it was near that 50 ppm and the bottom pic was tested yesterday.
