Luisse, did you have to do much photo acclimation? I also just got a few red St Thomas and have a darker red rhodactis. Neither one seems to like much light. I have several other rhodactis colors and St Thomas - all took to light quicker. Is it something about the reds?

NIce shrooms......What color is the yuma?
heres a pic under full lighting 14k phoenix with t5 actinic+,its in a shaded area on this pic before i put it out in the open...its orange color...this yuma came from somebody that he got from blazer 3 years ago...he grew it from a dime size...so if u blast captive grown orange yumas with lots of light it will turn pinkish?i saw blazers yuma when i bought from him a while ago when he still have his tank and i swear they are pink but they are high up the tank getting blasted with a lot of light....remember my 2 baby pinks before?(rip):cry:

if u can see on the pic i posted above the 2nd smallest yuma is pinkish....that came from rnegret...it stayed pinkish but not as pink when i first got it...........i guess its all about lighting....
