As this one is growing larger I am liking it more and more. It has this nice copper sheen to the body and the polyps have this yellow that contrast nice against the body. Throw in the purple growth tips and I think it's gonna be a stunner.

I must give credit to a local reefer for having one of the nicest Walt Disney's I have seen. This is one I picked up from him.

Wow. With all the new Tenuis out there it's still hard to beat a good Walt Disney. Anything about his set up or something he was doing that was different?

He did things differently than I do. He said he barely feeds but doses a capful of phosphate once a week. He runs radions with diffusers and had his corals only a few inches under the water to give them as much par as possible. He said his corals get around 550 par under the Radions.

I grabbed a few corals from Top Shelf Aquatics yesterday. I will share the pics over the week.

I already have a Cherry Bomb but theirs looked so nice I figured I would grab another.

I recently picked up a frag of the Twisted Sister from TSA. Looking forward to seeing it grow out and hopefully looking like yours. That is stunning!

Hey bubba I was wondering if you had some recommendations on some pieces worth picking up from TSA. I got some gift cards for christmas and I am itching for some stunning pieces. I am thinking for sure the CB Maleficent but haven't really got to much further.

That’s tough as everyone likes different stuff and has different budgets.

If budget doesn’t matter I’d get something like RRUSA angry birds, Biodiesel or rainbow fusion.

If on a tighter budget I’d get pearlberry, pink lemonade, fruity pebbles.

Somehow I missed all your updates of new rebuild . Awesome to see you back !

Even if you have the biggest budget , if there’s one acro you have to have is a true Pearlberry . Nothing quite like it ;)
