I believe....this Walt Disney is the most beautiful coral I have ever seen in person. I am completely blown away by it!

I knew the WD would explode with color for you under your T5/LED fixture. It looks nice under my daytlight halides too  ^-^

And the thing is, it looks good all day long! I ramp LEDs and then knock them down a bit when the T5ís come on for a few hours and then ramp down LEDs in the evening to straight actinic. The other corals look good in certain combinations but this WD is beautiful in ALL the combos. I love it!

AV99 is the real deal. I got my first frag from him at the IndyMAS swap and was thoroughly impressed. Going from his MH to my T5/LED set up had me a little concerned, but it took a very short time for my frag to return to looking as good as the day I bought it. A testament to the health of his corals!

Thanks Tim!

PS I still need a Matt V Rainbow from you!

Sincerely,
Toby

Stick addiction is contagious.  ;)  Glad to share the WD with you too!

Thanks, Toby! I will make sure the Matt V Rainbow ends up in your reef too.

Today I came home with 5 new frags that I picked up from Tim.  As always his corals are the best. If you ever get the chance to go shopping with him jump at it.  Not many corals that he does not have.  Had to climb a 25ft ladder to get them but that is another story :)

Thank you Jesse. Yes, the newest round of pictures were photographed under Hamilton 20K 400 watt Halides. Trying to adjust white balance is a challenge for me under blue light.

As for coral color, its an optical illusion. To the naked eye, the same corals look different under daylight lights versus blue lights. I prefer daylight as that is the way I see the corals on shallow reefs in the wild. When you put them under blue light without making adjustments for white balance, they look crazy Lol.

 Here is a recent picture under heavy blues ... Its a smaller colony of my RRC Pretty in Pink  ::) Just having fun with this image.

Even my blue corals look better under blue lights. AV99 Blue Thunder and Oregon Tort shine under the Hamilton 20k lights.
