    Acropora chesterfieldensis (as neon as a highlighter marker in person!! canon wouldn't capture it)

    Here is A.Tenuis that I have been growing out for 3 yrs from a 1/2 in frag.It was green and now yellow with pink on the tips of the new growth. I tried to capture the light pink tips but could not get them to glow like in person.

    i'm pretty sure the cali tort and the ORA tort are the same thing.

    but yeah, that looks severely bleached. what color are the polyps?

    Not bleached, that's the metering on my camera(for reference, it is on the top of a dark green rubber piece from a rose holder). It is vibrant blue in person, but directly lighted and it drives my camera crazy. If anyone knows how to adjust it, please let me know. I can't get a decent pic of my chesterfieldensis either, it is neon green/yellow in person and looks like a bleached yellow in my pics.

    Forgot to mention, the polyps are the same color blue as the rest of it.
