Why 3 you ask?

I want to hear, or better yet see, your TOP picks (and only choosing three really makes it difficult!)

BUT, 3 in a tank you ask? Because I don't want this to be based purely off color- interesting and varying growth patterns really become a major factor!

Why in "daylight" or 20k and under spectrum?! Because we'd end up with a thread full of tenuis ( don't get me wrong I love them and own enough of them) and "rainbows" that only look great a short time of the day.

I'm looking for sps that are show stoppers during the day, not just under the heavy blue/orange glasses...and yes I do that too! :) I'm making a swap to MH lighting and would really like to see some pieces that look good the majority of the day.

I'm with bubba on the hungs rainbow. I have the grafted version and it looks fabulous in any lighting. Pealberry and sc orange passion are great choices though id have to throw an efflo in there somewhere though.

I had a nice 500 efflo growing out but lost it with a few other pieces in my stn/rtn battle. I'm hoping the tank has worked through it now.

OT is like a 42 year old woman who still looks sexy as heII, am I wrong?! She may not be 25, but she still got the face, body, money, experience AND excellent credit score!!!
I think you mean that “one” you don’t tell your friends about. And maybe make hide behind a tree if anyone you know comes walking by.
