It still doesn't look like the original pic, I really like how it's come along for me;) It's starting to take off now! The yellow is coming through for sure. And I swear I see pink polyps in the new growth by eye! It's a super soft pink though that I can't capture with my phone. Anyway, here's my frag;

Like I mentioned earlier I received one on October 20th and I kept it low in the tank for 2-3 weeks. During that time it went from looking like Adams to a green acro with the polys having turned green as well.
About two weeks ago I moved it up to the highest point in the tank and it has encrusted nicely and the tips are starting to turn a yellowish hint and the polyps have turned more toward a light reddish color. I am guessing this one likes slightly more light

This one seems to be all over the place as far as color and growth. I'm really liking the way mines looking! It'll probably change colors again in another couple months

I need to take and post a new picture. My coloration still isn't great but my growth is fantastic. Actually, I can't complain about the color, the coral looks fantastic. It just isn't very yellow.

Hi there, I'll confess this is really unlikely only because i have extremely limited amounts of the peel, and unless you ordered one, the odds i'd send one are slim. Not impossible but slim for sure, and for what its worth the "peel" blows the hammer away lol.

either way would love to see a current pic. Im pretty sure id be able to tell you either way. If it turns out to be the "peel", I'll owe you a hammer:)
