    I need a Battle box! Kinda disappointed with what I got at RAP for the money. Should have just gone with Adam and BC. Gotta figure out the funds.

    Finally got a decent shot of my Pearly Cadaver. Easily in my top three from BC.

    As soon as this new build is to that stage I will be ordering that one.

    Don't want to risk losing it in the move over

    I got one from him 2-3 weeks ago! It's beautiful and has amazing polyp extension.

    Can you tell us what type of lighting you have yours under and what PAR? I'm switching from 8 bulb T5 to reefbreeders photon V2 this week!

    Not sure on par but it's under ATI off to the side of my shallow tank. Light is about 15 inch of water surface and it sits down on bottom of 12 inch height tank. It's a very hardy and fast grower for me...

    you won't be disappointed, we'll need to trade in the future some BC for BC.

    I know I won't be disappointed. I've purchased in the past but only recently had anything I'd call success with sps, so I'm hopeful.

    The anticipated pack:
    1. Reef Ready Grape Juice
    2. Blue Matrix
    3. Inlands Kalidescope
    4. Sky Dopple
    5. Tubs Pink Jade
    6. Schizo Sunset
    7. Bleeding tree
    8. PC superman
    9. Vivid rainbow Delight
    10. Rainbows in Spain
    11. Brad's Insane deFuego
    12. Excaliber milli
    But looking through pics in this thread I think I made an oversight in not including the Pearly Cadaver.

    I'm sure I'll be happy with them all, regardless. :) I had a defuego once from BC but lost it awhile back. So, I'm hoping I can do it right this time around. I've always attempted to keep sps under leds before, and while I think it can be done successfully (I have some coloring up under them slowly) these will all go in a tank lit by MH, so I'm excited.

    Some of those pics of the pearly are pretty eye catching though. :)
