New SPS colonies (pics)

Again the self crowned king or the crosspost has a new one. These are some pics of 4 new colonies of SPS (acro and birdsnest) I picked up yesterday. I would like some positive IDs if they can be provided. Kudos to the donor. I have had some issues during the burn-in of my coralvue bulbs but that seems to have settled. I am still leaning on the side of caution and have them all low in the tank with a shortened seven hour photo period which I will lengthen by an hour every other day and then slowly move them up to the desired location. Thoughts? Comments?

Th interesting part of this is that I sort of took atvantage of an opportunity and a LFS employee. Generally I don't like to buy SPS from Local sources based on cost. But this employee clearly had the wrong figures. Usually all SPS colonies are $75 out of their SPS display. I paid as low as $35 each and only $15 for the small colony. This one was the most expensive at $49.

Nice acros. I prefer not to buy large colonies. What is the fun in that. You buy frags and watch them grow. But nice anyways.

No no the clam is alot better. I moved him, cleaned him, removed some pyramid snails, and fed the crap out of him. Looking lots better. Plus picked up a six line wrasse to hopefully take care of the pyramid snail problem.

Curious: what was the burn-in issue with your coral vue bulbs? I've got 2 new 250w bulbs, so I'm kinda wondering.
