Back at it... RSR 170

In the ongoing investigation into what the heck is the Green Lump, I shot this horrible top-down pic to show the changes to the color at the tips.  Still looking sort of like the Paletta Tricolor, still totally the wrong shape.

 

I will likely need to update this later as when looking at the photo on the monitor the shot is shameful... I really need one of those spyglass things.

Well, it has been three weeks since the last update.  I have finally gotten pretty close to figuring out my alk dosage, running at around .7dkh per day of usage.  I am seeing some happy corals starting to extend polyps more and more in the day hours.  A few of these shots are horrible, I still can't get the phone to shoot blue corals quite right, and some of the pieces are just too well lit, I can't turn down the brightness enough to get any detail... they will work for growth tracking shots though.

Confusa (I think) from @Gil&Fin

Wild Australian probably a spathulata from Cuttlefish, it can't tell if it wants to be yellow or pink

Another wild Aussie acro from cuttlefish, no clue what it is but the colony was a table.  tips are going a nice rose color, they look more purple in photo

Red Dragon continues to be a purple dragon

Blue Tort from Cuttlefish, this one needs some TLC but I swear it looks better after two days in the tank.  Maybe @CuttleFishandCoral can back me up on this.  Does not photograph well at 550 par

Some old school Purple People Eaters that I scored from @goldenbasketreef

Wild Aussie from Cuttlefish, this is looking to be a "shortcake" and is turning blue on the growth edges

What I thought was a SunsentMonti from @Gil&Fin but it is turning purple on the edges, why must everything turn purple?

Tubbs Stellata from Cuttlefish is finding its groove.

Still on the hunt for a 20k Lokani, RR Maleficent, Pinky the Bear, Purple Monster with lineage, Bahama Mamma, and Icefire Echinata if you have a line on those. 

That's all for now.  If you are in SW Portland, have a DSLR, and want to come for a photo shoot so I can get some good pictures I will trade pizza and beer for your time, hit me up.

Once my wife comes back from her trip to Africa with my camera on Friday, I'd be happy to arrange a photo shoot.  My tank only has so many corals, so I'm getting tired of taking the same photos over and over!  I have a Nikon D610 with a 200mm macro capable of very detailed photos.  Here's an example:

I am one of those idiots that buys a Spath thinking he will be the one to keep it looking pretty... posting a photo so I can prove myself wrong in a month... at least for now it is so colorful it looks fake!

Also included a group photo for scale, which really means nothing to anyone but me, but I guess it will help me count branches to see if it grew any...
