  • One of my prized corals...

    Some shots over the course I have had it.. Started about the size of a golf ball 7.5 months ago.. First pick is with CV 20k bulbs.. Second pic it with xm 20k.. Third is with xm20k and vho actinic and T5 blue+ and xm20k on M59 ballast.. Fourth is the same lighting also..

    Here it is 9 weeks ago. After adding the new RO 1 pendants and going with SLS M59 ballast to power my xm20K it has grown through the roof. Plus I treated for redbugs and that was the best thing I have ever done for my SPS corals.. Here
    it is 9 weeks later.

    Picked it up from Evolution Aquatics also ScottW from the boards here..

    Peace all, Jeff :yesway:

                      Thanks all.... I was wondering of the ID on this coral.. I have seen a plana that looked just like it as well, atleast thats what it was named on the site.


                      Peace, Jeff

                          Thanks Vince. Yes all 20K xm.. I think its the best bulb I ever used in 14.5 yrs of reefing... I got the M59 magnetic ballast also to power it at its best along with reef optix 1 reflectors.. Wonderful combination and no color shift after 8 months use on these bulbs...
