    Thanks guys!! We have amazing success with these pieces. I think we have it figured out! We have tanks where the parameters are very specific just to receive these corals. Acclimation and good water is key.

    What are those parameters you keep these in? Are those similar to where they come from or just something you found works well?

    Each one looks like a gem. So you think they are going to keep those colors? That would be wonderful!

    We keep them in pretty common parameters. Calcium and DKH close to NSW. Lower nutrients, but no carbon dosing.

    Thanks!

    lol Thank you

    Ill post some pics of our grow out tanks. Not only do they keep their colors, they get better!!

    For everyone asking how these corals do long term...

    This is one of several of our SPS Grow Out Tanks. These corals have all been put through a insane 4 month QT before making it here. We have noticed once we get them into a stable system with good parameters they start coloring up and growing in no time. Some more Eye Candy!

    P.S. Notice the Radions have whites on too! We took this shot under a 20k spectrum.

    Is that a purple stylo in the upper left hand corner? If so, it sure has super thick branches.

    Being from SoCal I never have had any desire or reason to go to Orlando. I mean why go to Florida to visit amusement parks. NOW I have a reason to visit Orlando!
