    Adam! I'm suprised you remember me... of course I did pester the crap out of you to come see your facility for a while. Yeah, I was out of the hobby for a while due to unforseen health issues, but I still drooled over your website the whole time I was gone. I am about to get set up again and I look forward to a battle baggie!

    I have one of these on my frag rack, delivered yesterday. Even the day of unpacking it glowed under the blues. This thing is going to make me /drool once it acclimates!

    It's a fuzzy one for sure! I love fuzzy acros! That's with all flow on too.

    I can't capture the yellow on it well with my phone. It's like a highlighter marker.

    Just have to update this thread. This coral is amazing. The yellow on mine is very pale, but the green is starting to come in. And it has the best polyp extension of any of my acros. Wish my photography skills were better!

    Figured out I was using really bad light setting. Got those fixed and my hammer is already showing improvement. Starting to color up nicely!

    Here's mine. Polyps look like they want to go for a walk around the tank, lol. Just took this pic about an hour ago actually. This is with t5s only. Kessils turned off before I could snap the pic. 20180627_200505.jpg

    What light do you use? I have mine under a Kessil/t5 combo. I like the colors your getting out of yours.

    I use Mitras LX 7206's with T5 supplements. I was using way too much red light. I dialed down the reds and whites and my coral started growing better and are showing better color.

    Very cool!

    Try to get a shot of your frag soon. It'll be neat to compare yours, brew12 and mine as they grow:)

    Same as Brew12. Got mine months ago. You can see a pic of mine right when I got it earlier in this thread. And a more recent one just a few posts before your first in this thread. I really like it. It's a cool one for sure!
