    I am reliably informed it looked similar to this when first bought from TMC

    I did 2 frags of it when it was rough, one for me and one for Killi, incase it died.

    As the colony seems to be recovering, I gave my frag to Nev yesterday, so we will soon see, what proper colours it will go to.

    Your frag of mine looks great mate. A lighter purple colour, and is certainly thriving. :thumbup1:

    Cheers Ged :thumbup1:

    I am hoping Pearls will combat both my Nitrates and Phosphates, not planning to stock the tank heavily, then the Skimmer and LR, i do need to add a carbon source, but as its an unsumped setup, i need to try and retrofit something.

    The Orphek PR-156w LED unit arrived yesterday, thanks to Marine Aquatics.

    A quick video of my tank under the whites.
