It took a little while to settle in but it’s looking good now

This frag came from a local reefer who got their original piece from the same person I got my first one from (which came from JF>CG: originator of TGC cherry Bomb). Unfortunately our common source had a major crash and got out of the hobby completely. My rather sizable colony never looked this good. And my second piece from therman died too. This one is temperamental.
Images from 8/15. I’ll add more on 9/15.

Unfortunately this is not my first rodeo with this girl either. She’s been a real rhymes with itch. I have a good feeling about this one though.

Bought one and it was white for the longest time, so I smashed it with a pair of pliers and it came back to life. There are 6 in this pic.

I was ticked, I paid $200 for it and it was white when I got it. I told the seller and he said he would replace it, then his colony died and there was not a new frag to be had. After 4 months I snapped

Mine is too new to show growth yet. I got it on Aug. 5 from @A Reef Creation and it arrived healthy. Here it is when I received it:

And here it is today (3 weeks later):

The pink is starting to come through slowly.

Yours is perfect. This is a growth progression thread.

This is one I've struggled with too. I originally had 2 beautiful large (softball sized) colonies that were doing amazing, but then I believe I had a bacterial imbalance that caused it to RTN. The only other coral affected in my system was MattV Rainbow Envy. I've now acquired both of them again and they are doing well (knock on wood), but I lost 2 more frags of HW before the ones I have now settled in. Here's a couple of pics of one of my colonies it was much larger when it croaked...

Here’s an updated pic of my white beauty as of today. This one is a soul survivor. Didn’t think she would have made it, but it’s one of my fastest growers right now.

Those look great. This is one I've never had luck with. I'm on my 3rd attempt (first couple tries went nowhere). I can keep it alive and nice bright green, but I can't get them to grow or develop the pink highlighting... Some people grow it like gsp, but I don't know the trick.
