    I don't own a fancy high dollar camera, but after picking up this new acropora from Matt @BoomCorals I almost want to just to share with you guys the color of it. It's called Booms Blueberry Stag, and it's got a dark blue color with a purple hugh to it, and the new growth spots are a light blue. It's gorgeous and a great addition to my tank. Thanks Matt!!

    You’re welcome and happy new year! And yea it’s a tough coral to get a picture of for sure. I may have to try some different things to get a picture as close to the eye as possible.

    I also picked up this one from him. It's called sunrise millepora, and it's an orange with slight pink color and new growth is yellow. Beautiful coral which again cannot be captured by camera.

    I just got done moving him when I took this picture, he started coming out a little bit before that, I'll take some pics tomorrow when they're not so upset with me. And I agree, darn Wisconsin below 0 weather!

    I constantly browse boom corals site wishing the temp would warm up! I just don't trust USPS getting my corals to me in -1 degree weather :( My very first order from him was extremely impressive!

    Looking good, nice score! I would encourage you to move them 8"-10" apart or more. You will find as they grow, they will immediately start competing with one another for space.
