Letís celebrate Labor Day with some colorful pictures!
Pics were taken under blue light, no saturation added, I try my best to mimic the color I see when blue and violet LEDs are on.
Enjoy.

Rr Pretty in Pink. Currently the most bright coral in my tank right now. Truly glowing.


Group shots for comparison. Next to it are Walt Disney (left) and RRA Rainbow Bloom (right)



Vivid confetti is the next shinning coral. Beautiful red!



Up hight of the tank is my smoothskin. Interesting acro with yellow tips and pinkish body/base. Hope you notice the blue polyps.


Unknown tenuis with very cool teal body and pink coralline.


Another unknow acro with yellow polyps.


BkChem Black Sabbath, I am so lucky didnít lose it during the crash. Slowly coming back.

So, do you have 3 radions?
One on either end that is perpendicular to the tank and then one in the middle that is parallel?

So my schedule is like this, 1PM to 3PM I have mostly blue and violet channel on. From 3PM to 9PM I have Blue/Violet at 100%, White/Green/Red at 24%. 9PM to 2AM I have mostly blue/violet again.
Hope it helps.

Yes, I have 3 radion g4 pros on this tank. The middle is parallel because there's the overflowbox in the center (I hate it!!!)

Things doing real good but the tank look boring with just frags.
Just switch to Samsung and tapatalk on Android doesn't let me upload full size pictures like the one on iPhone.
Hopefully the pictures still look decent and still able to...entertain you.

Pictures were taken using Nikon D500 aith Tamron 90mm macro lens. 20k lighting.

The one you saw in picture was Lps amino. Brs shipped me wrong that bottle when I ordered Kz Flatworm stop. So I am dosing 2ml everything other day, just because I have it.
The other product I used is kz flatworm stop. Not sure if it work but when I had the crash, my friend recommends me using this, he said it helps strengthen the corals.
