Looks like it lost it's nice green color since you bought it. Hey it's the guy that sold it to you. It's latin is Acropora subglabra or "Deepwater Bottlebrush". Depending on your lighting spectrum, this acro can have a few variations in color. It is a Bali maricultured coral.

No it is still as green I just didnt bother messing with the white balance in that pic. You can kinda tell especially by looking at the color of the clam and the coraline algae on the rock is very washed out in the picture. I remember you saying it was a deepwater bottlebrush but when i saw the turaki i guess i started second guessing. Either way it is a sweet coral!

This is just PC actinics? That is an amazing photo! All I could get were 50/50 PC's for my config, and there is just NOT enough actinic like that.

Beautiful, dude!

Yeah that is just PC actinics. If you have a PC fixture you can put actinics in it that will work. How many lamps do you have in your fixture?

I have a dual retrofit PC setup from Corallife from a number of years ago, now in a PFO reflector with a 175W MH. It's a square pin 55 watt arrangement. And therein lies the problem. The only 55W square-pins I could buy were 50/50's and they had to be ordered from a local store. I found a website that says you can use 65W bulbs AFTER I bought the 50/50's. Of course, that was one website that sold bulbs, so you have to consider that too. Since the bulbs are brand new, I haven't gone out to buy a 65W actinic to see what happens. I also don't want to burn anything out. I guess I'll try one and see what happens, then at least I'll have the other side if something does go awry.

That'd be awesome. Then we can confirm whether the 65's will work on a 55 ballast. I bought a single 65W hood that I have over a tank with some live rock in, and was going to test with that 50/50 bulb, but it is straight pin, so that was out.

Let me know and I'll come get it then. Again, tanks for the offer.
