The only SPS I have is two small birdsnest frags. They have been under the two 20w 12000k for a few months now and are growing well. I will take some photos and keep track on their growth and post it here.

Once my 55g build is done (see my other thread) then I will put a few more SPS corals under these lights and keep track of the growth with weekly pics.

The color is my main concern. Are they brightly colored?

I assume you mean the birdsnest right?

Im not an expert on SPS corals and this is my first frag, it has got brighter green and opens up more since I've had it under these lights. Here's a shot of it from my phone, I will charge up my real camera for better shots.

Yea that's wise! This is an experiment with these lights as I have not seen anyone prior using them for saltwater. As I said before, once I get my 55 running (as soon as my tanks ready at the glass shop, getting drilled) then I will put the canopy over the 55 and get a variety of frags in there so I can do weekly updates on how they are developing. But having used them for a few months I'm confident that they will work, fingers crossed!
