Where is that Bonsai in your tank? Any tips for keeping the purple vibrant?

In my tank it is very low, close to the sandbed. But directly under a 250watt Radium in a LumenArc reflector. I'd suggest medium light medium flow and stable parameters.

Here you go Jimbo..... still on the sandbed.
GARF Purple Bonsai


And a few other shots, some of my frags are too far back in the tank for me to take a good focused picture. I really need that macro lense.

Ponape Birdsnest


Upscales Microcladus.....One of my newest additions, I couldn't focus this one. It is green with purple polyps.

Haha, you have expensive taste A1. They are usually around $30-50 an inch. It's easily one of my favorites too. Mine looks more teal though, I hope it deepens up its colors a bit.
