    Very nice zesty. I have my first sps A.rosario but I don't get polyp extension like that. I love the color of that mille. Kudos Todd.

    Keep growing this out so I inevitably get the sps bug and set up a tank when I get into a new place. :D lol

    My guess is different tank, slightly different parameters, different salt. I now get smaller flower like polyps, not the stringy ones pictured. It still looks healthy, so I'm not too concerned.
    I tried to take a picture, but it was too blue. I'll have to get out the DSLR and see what I can do.

    I see a bunch of them with the long polyps, and never have quite figured out why mine don't. Mine are good and healthy though. Its possible it could be the difference in nutrients between tanks. It makes sense to me if they're hungry polyp extension would increase. Mine are far from underfed.
