    Mine has started to show blue tips several times and then something happens to the tank and the tips are lost.

    After the move there was a definitely slump and subsequent recovery period, but I am seeing the blue again now for sure. Seems way more prominent in colonies under leds for me. Still not exactly sure what the recipe is but w hen all the coloration is realized in this one its such a remarkable acro! Thanks for reviving this thread:)

    Nice!
    Adam, how high above water is the Photon? How far below surface was coral?

    Outstanding! That looks really good! Mine have shown hints of blue that have wavered a little since move but I can see it wanting to come back for sure.

    I think mine is starting to get the blue tips. I cut a frag off the one in my display and moved it to my tank with leds to see if that would make a difference.

    Adam do you still think it's the leds that bring out the blue?

    that's a beautiful piece Bubba! Mine went from all green, to start coloring up with the pinkish, and then it died on me. I love the rim on that!

    I would say around 350-400, it is getting blasted with Blue LED's and high nutrients.

    I can never give mine enough PAR to get blue tips for fear it would explode overnight and smother every other coral in the tank.
