So I won a Somatic UF-1 media reactor at one of my LFS anniversary sale 

I know nothing about this product

Just looked through your page, and I gotta say, you have some great frags. Don't have a media reactor myself, but it basically tumbles whatever media is inside it, which is beneficial for certain types of media

Some new pics. Grabbed a couple coral from the anniversary sale at FJW aquarium in Houston. https://instagram.com/p/BakQ-5MAvJb/

Oh and I changed my lighting to all blues. The acans have really loved it. I watched the Jason Fox video and he said that is what really makes the coral color up

Jason knows his stuff and the corals are looking really good. What are you using to take pictures?

These are armors.

What I have and what I think you have are different than armors. They have a much more scattered pink center and also a teal skirt as opposed to brown/dark like armors. They are super sick so I'm hoping you got a good deal on them :happy:.

I was just curious because I have been growing mine out for a while and got them as a wild caught probably a year and a half ago as a single polyp. 

 

 

 

Also I just noticed those magicians in the background of that picture. Man you have some sick zoas!

It’s awesome. Takes a little while to break in and get tuned just right but it pulls out some gunk!

Man those are good prices. You buy from Unlimited Coral Colors at all? I always see them at shows and know they are out of Houston.

@TFish77 this is the “mutant zoa” that popped up with my Gatorade zoas. Green lashes, blue rim, pink body, gold mouth with blue “lips”

Ah those are eagle eyes (at least they look like it). Another cool pickup for sure.
