    I found another awesome display of how much a coral can morph today. All three of these frags are from the same colony that was cut about six months ago.

    Why are they so different Mike? Same system under the same conditions?

    Different systems with different conditions. The dark frag at the left has been kept under a 400 watt 20k halide with LED accent. Both frags on the right have been kept under a Kessil A350.

    That's really interesting Mike. Thanks for sharing. What brand is the halide bulb? Have you seen good growth witht he Kessil 350?

    I have noticed this quite frequently when buying coral. After some time, they look nothing like when first purchased.

    Which one looks better in person?
    I like the light blue but suspect the darker has better color under daylights?
    Do you think it's all the lights or are water specs similar?

    I prefer the light blue ones too but the mouths pop on the darker one. I'll just take all three. Lol
