To much gossip time for a picture

XXX Goni. Short polyp 2 hours in my tank.

My personal favorite from this post. Look at all the colors. The greens are hard, feel and scrap like coraline. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck it must be a duck

Setting up second dose for Triton method. Nope can’t afford to build a cabinet. Dose pumps are better with no cabinet then cabinet with no dose pump. My part being green

Coralie comes in many different colors. pink, or some other shade of red, but some species can be purple, yellow, blue, white, or gray-green.

When it starts on rocks I get pinks. Definitely my favorite while it last. They get more red and eventually become purple.

In my 75 before upgrade it started to plate. That was really cool. I hope I can get it plating again

Do you know if light spectrum has anything to do with the color or just the strain of coraline

My guess is like coral it requires different spectrums or intensties. Each color I would believe requires just a little different. The reason we are seeing different colors in different parts of the tank. Purple or a shade of purple is most prevalent in our aquariums is because of the spectrum and intensities of the light we use.

I seen green in low par areas. In high par I seen purples and pink.

Just what I've seen. I could be completely wrong

I think you might be right. I have seen the same in my tank too. Purple seems darker in brighter light.

Saltwater nuclear Reactor <3 so cool to see how it has phased and evolved, like they tend to do. Whats left for other macros? Keith's chaeto has doubled already in mine.

How bout a video of your tank? I gotta get down there and just come solo for a day trip. When i have time to stay and not burn cheese ;)

Most of the macro is ulva and smaller ball of chaeto. Everything else got choked out or was more of a pain then it was worth.

You and any Misfit are welcome anytime. The door is always open.

Ill be in the bushes and hide miller lites around the driveway like easter eggs. U will know then.

Saturday I may have had some drinks and logged in POTO auction. Ended up bidding on a Sunkist bounce and winning. Hmm I never win anything. Figured I’ll drive an hour and pick it up and save $20 in shipping. After $15 in tolls, $10 gas, and $10 lunch I made it home. Didn’t take a picture because it’s either blue or color is way blown out and the bubbles are yellow so here it is from POTO
