What kind of lighting were those under? You might be able to get them to color up in your tank.

Nice pick ups!!!!

I'm counting on that actually. He had them in a 72g bowfront frag tank, all were in the sand. He was using a PC light with just over 200 watts i believe. He was using halide lighting over the tank but ran into some issues a while back and has been subbing the PC in the meantime. I got some of the last of what was left in the tank right now.

Oh man...SCORE!!!!! Who know what colors those corals are! That is really the best case scenario. You should see a big change under your lighting.

Very nice!!!!

Thanks for all the comments guys. I'm pretty shocked that these guys are doing as well as they are considering the lighting they were subject to. I will definitely post some after shots a little bit down the road. thumbs2:
