I had them for 6 months. My green cap/purple rim had the most vivid bright coloring to it as did my tricolor acropora. The purples really popped! I aslo had a couple of orange caps, hydnophora, some orange montipora digitata, staghorn... these all grew great and colored nicely. When I changed over to my MH the orange monti digi started bleaching as did my orange caps (in spite of a very slow introduction to the MH lighting) Maybe they needed to be moved down, but they were very colorful under my PC lighting. I didn't have anything that was all purple or all pink. Those are tougher colorings to grow with just PC but it gets really tiresome hearing broad brush comments that you can't have any SPS under PC lighting. That just isn't true based on what I saw in my tank as well as fellow reefers here in NJ.

I agree. My point is there are many you can't- as you also pointed out. I would hate to see someone read this, assume all SPS are fine, go out and buy a pink birds nest only to see it brown and die over time. That would be a beautiful animal lost and a wallet that is alot lighter. Happy reefing.

Equally I would hate for people to read this and think it isn't possible to keep any. I just like to point out to people that they can keep some. As with anything, do your research. If you want to keep some SPS learn what can and can't be kept under the type of lighting and height of the rockwork that you have. I'm glad to see that we agree

Happy reefing!
