Well all blue LEDs + Orange filter = Exaggerated colors. Its the salesman special.

These corals in all blue LED's without the orange filter are less poppy, and Full Spectrum pictures of these corals look completely different. Some of these under 14k are pretty much just a tan/green color.

Did you guys know Tenuis used to be trash coral before LED's?

The neon one top center right..

Ohh.. myy... gawwwwd

The green and orange one just up and right of center? That's a wild Spathalata, which started really growing once it moved back to my tank. It's developing a lot of orange/peach tones which are really nice. I have high hopes for that one.

No I do not, it's one I've wanted for awhile though, and it should be a chunky frag :)
Niceee! Well congratulations! It’s always rewarding getting something you’ve had your eye on.

Definitely! I've had my eyes on most of those for awhile. Thankfully that was all fun'ded by coral sales too. Looks like I'm setting up a trade or two as well. Today I got a small colony of TGC Cherry Bomb. Came in after I finished taking pictures of course, lol..

That’s the way to do it! Very cool. Is coral sales your full time job or what else do you do as a profession?

Rakie, after following your build thread, curious what your issues with vibrant was( I either missed it, or have brain farted and can't remember)?

I've been using it to get rid of some nuisance algae, which it has worked on, but my some euphyllia, and blasto's do not look happy. I'm now wondering if it's the vibrant, because everything was happy before.
