    Hey now.. I think they have a Dr Seuss look to them. I don't have any, but don't mind them. Kenya trees bore me to death & cinnamon palys.

    I am not liking maricultured acros. I got a few from a good sale that just look kinda blah... of the 5 I got one seems to be the jewele. I would have rather bought one nice one than wind up with 4 blah ones

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    I try to stick with the tried and true aquacultured like ORA's, they take a beating and keep on ticking for years not just months. The Planets, GARF, Joe.....very hardy corals.

    Maybe all they need is a little TLC and time. Lighting, flow, water quality, and stability affect growth, color, and PE. :)

    I think I would rather do the same in the same in the future. Especially now that space is becoming a premium.

    yeah they are getting all of the above but when I look at some of the other stuff out there-I would rather put the money in the unique and different.
