Did you pull the trigger on any thing? I got the splatter tiger :smiling-face-with-sunglasses:
I did not. The comment about lights did not answer my question to my satisfaction. I love the way that bta looked but without knowing knowing what tempurature the lights were, that could have just been a ‘normal’ rose bta which I have plenty. So i held off.
How did you do?

I did pretty good. Pretty much got everything that I wanted no complaints there. But like usual went a little overboard :)

The last few live sales that I’ve bought from have been Poto auctions. I feel Ive got some great deals on some pretty nice corals. Always healthy and I’m always happy with what I get.

I am still struggling so only looking at btas. Had a few people check on what I am doing and have been told that I am doing ‘everything’ right and my parameters are close to ideal (of course people always will quote the perfect numbers if you are but 1% off). Since I can’t keep real corals, I have been being successful with btas. Just very limited selection of different color varieties.

Sorry you didn't get the answer you were seeking. The pictures were taken under Radion all blue, royal blue, and violet. However our main brood stock are grown under Kessil AP9x. In our experience Radion really brings out the intensity of the coloration.

If you post some photos of your tank sometimes it may help us diagnose any issue you may be facing.
