This is the most difficult acro to photograph that I have ever had. LOL! It looks different depending on the lighting. This was doing amazing, and then I caused it to almost die hitting it with aptasia x. I fragged it into pieces and now have 4 to give out. They are all growing onto the plug and starting to color up again. The new growth is a fantastic purple and the old growth gets a green hue under LED's. Polyps have been many colors ranging from yellow, green and purple?? What the mother colony did look like. Sort of. LOL! Another of the mother colony, and as you can see it looks totally different. Same coral. Standard DBTC rules......would like to see them go to people who have had some success with SPS.
