It has some great potential to become an OG competitor, or at least get to the level of the Sunkist. If I had the funds I would possibly nab that one, there were I think 5 more but they disappeared in less than 12 hours lol
ASD always has the fire. Im sure they get first dibs on all the latest and greatest because they probably do alot of importing with certain wholesalers and divers. Im always stalking ASD gear. Ive gotten some gems from ASD.
You kinda took the words I wanted to say about that last one. Definetely has potential to be great. Never know what you can end up with in right conditions thats for sure.

I have never heard of the GB orange before, very interesting! I have seen some Sunkists with bigger bubbles than an OG, they were sick as hecc.
On another note, have you seen the Reefkoi bounce? It's bubble are pinky orange and glassy clear. Super pretty.

I'm sure they are the same shroom. GB doesn't make as many bubbles from what I found out historically. If i was to guess either one is just a healthy offspring or morph from one another. There are subtle differences especially in bubble production.

Woke up to an almost disaster this morning. My pufferfish got stuff to my return intake. Not sure how long he was stuck to it. Didn't damage anything but he is swollen and not using his fin on that side. Totally frustrated because i spaced it when i moved him yesterday. He's been stuck to everything he can possibly get stuck to at this point i knew better but got sidetracked.
Lowered my temps in the process but shrooms look alright.
Hope puffdaddy will be ok. He literally spits water at us when we go in fish room.
Anyhow a cpl morning wake up pix.

Just for the heck of it I decided to play around with picture edit functions on my phone. Typically just take the pictures in pro mode and try to get best focused picture i cant get with 0 filters and try to portray them exactly how they look to the eye.
I think i got it pretty close on the greens and how things actually look just looking at them on my reef under my lamp.
I like the edit function. It allows you to remove all the extra saturation from water movement and glare and shadows the lights create.
Need to work on getting super focused pictures now:)

All of your shrooms look amazing! The live rock in your sump is awesome! I wish mine looked that great.

My condolences for your loss. Also, glad the wife did a good job taking care of things while you were gone.

Your thread has given me a few good ideas. Thanks! Will be following along!

Feel like the shrooms are being shy today and don't want to let me take good pictures lol. They are still waking up.
Shroom condos should be here today:)
Can't wait to be able to gst a good shot of the electus. The net cover just won't let me. Will be nice to be able to get it in good position. The tupperware box is just a little to big.

The gonzos are fast hardy growers for sure. Already splitting again. Now if i could only get the rest of them to start dropping babies! Would love to see what the green jb babies do. If its just a one off or if it drops green babies. Or green based babies with orange and red. Or if the babies just come out regular jb color. Idk but suspense is killing me:)

Ok they are waking up a little.
Somewhere along the line I turned my white channel way up. Not sure when, why or where but something looked off when I put a cpl discs in it was way to bright!
Sure enough I must have mistakenly done that.
Dialed back down to 16%. Shrooms are for sure digging the violet spectrum.
Super close to the brs reccomended just 5% more on the violets.

A cpl pix of some of my favorites:)
And a cpl full table shots to show movement:)

Shroom condos have arrived. Fair warning to be prepared for some epic electus shots in the coming days;)
She mad right now for making the switch to new home.
On the flip side its great to know she has attached really well to the plug rubble:)
Be awesome if she decided to start dropping babies soon:)

Thanks for the heads up. They do have some really nice stuff. Especially that rainbow electus.
there are some bounces as well for insanely cheap! And just some really nice rhods in general, many of which have loads of potential. If I weren't saving funds for a show here on the 7th I would nab some! I'll be keeping this site bookmarked for the future.
