New additions

So I recently picked up a few new corals for the tank. The first three I got from my brother in law an he didn't tell me what they were. Maybe you guys can help with that one.

And the last little guy is a torch that almost died at my LFS so I bargained with the owner and picked it up for $10.00 ,hopefully that's a good deal

The first three are acros. . . I am not sure on exactly what the detailed names are.

As for the torch. . 10 bucks isn't bad, but usually u can get them for a descent price in good condition.

My wife is actually starting to say that we have too much purple . I told her that I'm going to work on getting some more corals to add other colors like some red mushrooms and a blue waving hand I saw at another LFS. Never thought I would have too much purple.

I started out with a volleyball sized rock already covered in coraline over a year ago and about 5 months ago I added some large rocks and decided to treat the tank with Kent's Purple Tech just to jump start the process. I only did two treatments and my tank went purple. Others I've talked with said they didn't have great results with purple tech but I think I did . Give it a try

Just fyi acros require high intensity lighting. Not sure what your using but figured you might not know since you didnt know what they were.
