Red Planet by far is the best red out there I've seen in person. Only thing is good or bad some LED settings perform whack a doo shades from pink to white to red and green. I've seen red planets under LEDs that had all white body and pink in the rest of the coral.......no deep red.

It's not the Radions per say causing the problem it's the spectrum settings aren't conducive to the coral creating vivid reds. The red pigments aren't getting excited at your current settings. Or
it also may just be visual.......is it purple visually when you whiten up the lights more?

My tank is severly lacking in pink and red acros. I have a Vivids Confetti but want one or two more in this color pallet. I’m looking for some ideas on what to get. These will be going under LEDs. Any suggestions?

Fox Flame
Red Planet
PC Rainbow - Higher PAR will bring out all Reds
CB Maleficent
TSA Princess Peach
TGC Cherry Bomb
BC Frankenberry V1 -
BC Frankenberry V2 - more red than V1
BC Firecracker table - red table with blue tips

And this beauty no name table I picked up for $10 in my LFS bargain bin. Sorry I know this doesn't help. Just had to show it off :D

I have red mushrooms, bubblegum digitata, Darth Maul Porities, Setosa, red Goniopora (actually Bernardpora now), red Acans, pink stylophora and I almost just bought TNT anacropra.

Reds, oranges and pinks just aren't great colors to find in Acropora - but there are better options if you aren't dead set on an Acropora only tank.
