    Shoot man sorry to hear it. I'm thinking i should probably let people know about this one right off the bat from now on. So it's doing well then now at least?

    Hey Daniel, I just mean that this one tends to be extra sensitive to higher light early on. I baked mine a few time even moving it within my own system, but Ive got a colony getting blasted under iwasakis so it can handle it. Just needs a long and gentle acclimation. I will mention that to any future buyers for sure so they don't have ether same problems.

    Ok. I've always had mine in lower light. Either way I'm patient and just looking at the pics of what it could potentially be gives me strength and patience to "wait it out". This really is a special piece!

    I was my fault as I'm a rookie and changed from kessils to T5 and bathed the tank 8 hours at 100% right off the bat. Hard lesson learned. And yes, he's healthy and growing now. I'll post some pics soon.

    I'll second the slow growing. I thought maybe it was because my piece was toying with going dormant. Went back and forth for a month, but ended up coming around. How's the PE on your piece?

    PE is only OK, but I have 5 pygmy angles in my tank so PE extension suffers on all my acros.

    Mine is still a puny little nub. She's gone dormant on me although the color is still ok.
