    Somebody hit up the Reef Raft booth. Did you leave any for anyone else? :) I'd like to see that yellow SPS. Just how yellow is it?

    Oh I left plenty for everyone else! There's no point in picking up extras of the same thing. The yellow is more green under my lights, but that could also be due to my normally high phosphates.

    Is that 56 or 5.6?

    56 there since the numbers are always full digits and no decimals are used. 56 ppb equates to 0.17 ppm of phosphates.

    My so called yellow millepora that I picked up at the CFM, is green in my system. Does anyone have a true yellow SPS here?

    Depends on the spectrum of your lighting and of course your nutrient levels. Pink floyd and/or the TCK pikachu are a couple of the true yellows. I'm running phosphates at 0.17 ppm. I've seen the PF and pikachu with lower phosphates (~0.03 - 0.05 ppm).

    You make me feel better about my high phosphates. I thought everyone around here was at 0.03 or less. :)

    Glad that I could help. :p

    Phosphates have been high since at least March, when I measured it at 0.15 ppm. I could probably bring it down by feeding less or elevating my nitrates, which are usually bottomed out. Nitrates tested at 0.2 ppm so it's detectably low.

    New comp for the month. Some removed from the last sale and some added.

    I picked up a sunset millepora that definitely is yellow on the top half (green on bottom) but it has brownish polyps that block some of the nice color. The Pink Floyd I saw at the recent coral farmers market was the yellowest acro I've seen outside my tank.
