When you start siphon by sucking, and this came out, 🤢🤮.  right side is fresh mixed sw for comparison.  I’m really terrible with water change. 😅

That's pretty much how my water change water looks all the time. I dont know where all the detritus comes from. 

 

Drops equivalent of 4 cubes of LRS and some pellets in. Watches a shoal of 10 anthias swim by.

The PE you caught on the second is nuts lol, almost looks like little Duncan heads or nem's.

Thanks! Both of these have been showing crazy PE. 
 

Just a random note/reminder for myself. When shoot with iPhone late at night, don’t edit color temp while the “Night mode” screen is on 😅.  Here’s a bit of a redo.

That is the SC orange passion. This one is slowly developing the signature bright orange polyps, just getting pass the yellowish stage.  The Superman tenuis should have pink-to-red polyps. 
If you referring to the mound of putty there, that is a small frag of cali tort. Just a bad angle of it 😅

Thats the orange passion?! This below is my tenuis. Just looked similar except I noticed yours had a lot more green. My orange passion is just a small stick. Was bright green everywhere but I am noticing polyps are turning orange or yellow. Just a waiting game. Thing is working hard to encrust first I think. 
 

Very nice pics

Thanks!  I have one unknown tenuis that looks like that. The polyps are kinda bleh, but actually look nice under more white light.

@mitten_reef Lemonade will always be a staple in my tank due to hardiness. OP is my permanent favorite. It's the right balance of price, hardiness, and coloration. 

 

@Elizabeth94 The SC OP's color's come more into bloom as it develops into a colony. Many times as a smaller frag, it will green out, but eventually it'll work itself back to orange. It is unmistakably orange too. 

 

Under whites:

Under Blues with Filter (you can actually see the damage to my tips here from my tank crash):

please tell me this means the OP survived the crash.
 

 

Let’s play a game of where’s Waldo, more like where’s Rasta? 😂

@pokerdobe THAT is exactly what I am hoping for! Absolutely beautiful. 
 

Funny. I remember rastas seemed like slow growers in my past tank. So with my newer tank they were the first to go in. Love their color.

They grow well, but all the yellow ones were already established on the rock when I added a few rastas.  Btw, I found a pic of the OP from not long ago, from April 5 photo set to be exact. It’s a bit blurry cuz it wasn’t the focus of that shot, just cropped it here. The polyps were still blah then.

Thanks! Slow and steady gets there. Once it starts taking off, it's a surprisingly fast grower. I've made more frags of OP than any other tenuis.

because the other tank is kinda slow-going due to reasons beyond my controls, I decided to give myself a little pat on the back with some new corals.  :lol:.  Not really wise use of tank budget, since I still have some more hardware/equipment to purchase for that tank, but oh well.  🤷‍♂️

 

waiting on shipping confirmation :happydance:

So I don’t think you need either of these two, or you probably won’t have a hard time finding them near you.  But, yes, dibs to you. 
These two are must have’s for me: JF Beach Bum and the WD...
