Anyone tried Tonga LR?

It looks beautiful on the website, was just wondering if anyone had seen it in person.

I have a piece of tonga branch, but I don't really like it. In a bigger tank; I think it would look great with all sorts of different set-ups. But thats my personal opinion, and you might like it.

Yes, I have 41+ lbs. of it.

The fish love it. The only draw back is that it creates easy hiding places so don't plan on ever catching your fish again...

In low light conditions, mostly purple algae will grow, but there are some reds and greens too. Plus, now after 2 months, some growth and brown coral.

It's different but a nice branch rock addition to your LR.
