    Now you have brought back painful memories Adam . Lost tank to the dreadful AEFW 7-8 years back when I hardly knew what they were and sworn never ever to keep reef tank again .

    Indiscriminately bought acros from anyone possible to have caused it .

    But once a reefer always a reefer !

    Some like OG purple monster I can get again today but will be another 5 years till they grow into colonies .
    But some like sapphire millepora and pink panther - not sure if I can get them anywhere again from trusted sources :(

    Wish I had some pics of them .

    Regards,
    Abhishek

    I had to tear this done in 2014. I am currently trying to build a new system but wow. This was nice. Lots of Adams corals were in there.

    My WWC SOTR Milli. Terrible pic, but it was the only one I could find of it. It was a beautiful coral.

    Man, I think we may have all lost that one. That guy might actually really disappear completely someday lol. Mines been gone for years. Was a great looking milli though. Way better than average.

    I lost my gonzo cookie monster after I failed to test my parameters. it fought a good battle but ultimately died right before I got everything stable. now I'm back on the hunt for a piece.

    Thing is I know the pics already. I remember the tank, and it's a serious heartbreaker, but Can you try to re-upload them. They didn't show up in your original post unfortunately

    I called him Snozberry. The bluest blue I ever saw. Put Oregon tort to shame.

    Powder Blue. Mid Left -- Pictures never did this coral justice. NO matter what i tried, it just looked meh in photos but it looked stellar in person. Loved the growth pattern too.

    This guy. Grew out from a frag to this and three different tank transfers in a year. Not the biggest colony ever or the best growth but for one of my first sps corals I was proud of it. I never remembered the name to it (not a tri color valida-I had two colonies of those and had more blueish green than purple like this guy) BTW this was taken under 10k 250 watt mh 9727B9D0-9E24-4691-B271-4069E3A8BCFF.jpeg
