    I'll try to get you a picture tonight. I moved it about a month ago into the main display so the colors are adjusting to T5 but it's growing very quickly so that's nice.

    Don't judge for color since its adjusting to T5s coming from LED but its growing very nicely.

    I like how you always follow through with request! Looks like it's growing fast, it's already off the plug. Color doesn't look bad either.

    Please tell my wife that so I can get bonus points.

    Yeah, color was more intense under LEDs but I'm sure once its adapted to T5, will shine too.

    I am in the market for the confetti, so I reached out to Brandon (vivid mentioned him in a post earlier as a seller) and he was able to send me a couple pics right off his camera. I think they look pretty great!

    Well I jumped in and purchased the frag he was holding. I will take photos when it gets here.

    I'm curious to see it. He was lambasted on the SPS Facebook page for pictures not matching what was received. Or so I heard at least. Supposedly he's taking less "improved" pictures now.

    I follow the sps Facebook page and I haven't seen much said on it. With that photo right of the camera I can't imagine it being to far from that. I'm curious as well how it will be. This being the most expensive frag I have purchased I hope it's nice.

    IBN's photo a couple post above looks pretty close to the ones he showed me that I posted.

    It was right after the original confetti frags were released if I remember right. The pictures he sent you look more realistic.

    Here's a juiced confetti picture. Not his, or at least I didn't receive it from him but someone else.

    Yeah that looks juiced up, lol. I love how I'm the pics he sent me you can see the polyp color transition. I will for sure take a pic but I'm absolutely horrible taking pics.

    I will be sure to disappoint, at least with my photo skills.

    Growth on my frag has really started to take off lately. Crappy iPhone shots...

    looks like this is a pretty fast grower. Brandon definitely has a lot of very very nice pictures of the Facebook page, especially what he posted tonight. I always wished someone else would go take pictures of them to see if they are close or what, they look insanely nice.

    That picture may appear buttered up but honestly after seeing it in person top down that is about as close to reality as it gets. The colors on there piece they have in the back of the store has all those colors and they are not dull by any means under blues.

    Wish I had a positive thing to input about my frag. I have been battling some issues with my tank that affected all of my sps. I broke the frag up and put one piece in my softy tank and both frags are just barely holding on. Praying they come out ok. Triton test is on its way.

    That's good to hear. I'm not a blue tank guy but I heard its a nice looking one under whites too. Hope your tank bounces back.

    Thank you.

    Does anyone have a nice clean white light shot or even 14k? That is the only thing I don't recall seeing.
