Also, you are a jerk for having such a nice bonsai. Mine still isn't very happy in my tank. It's polyps are coming out more and more though, so it's getting there I guess.

My bonsai went through a similar stage in the begining... an my Hawkins, I almost through my Hawkins out because it browned out for sooo long. Your pieces will come around nicely.

Its taken forever for my Verde and Nana to come around. They browned out really bad in shipping, and I have seen lots of similar accounts. All I have is time though :p I can't wait to fill up a 180 like yours with SPS.

I had that microcladus in the picture shipped to me. It came in brown and took a couple months to color up. I also got the strawberry shortcake in that same shipment which is still trying to color up. How long have you had the verde and nana?

I'd like to see your updated pics. Im big on thread with pictures, don't know if thats just me or everybody.... so I try to add pictures to my thread.
I'm with you though, I look at every coral every day looking for color improvement. Unfortunately, I think it's like watching a pot of water boil.

I need to start checking out your LED threads, since I am going to need a third light source soon and I can't add a third halide because of a wide center brace.

I am doing an LED set-up but it will probably be September before it is set-up and I will try and find a PAR meter close by test the power of the lights at various depths in my tank

I will keep an eye out for that one too. I probably will be around Sept too.

You can see in the pic how I really need to get that third light source in the middle of my halides.... the left side of the frag is in a shadow, not good.
