    Replace old lamps and adding 25% more light seems to please these 2 coral very much.
    In the recent weeks the colors are improving and day by day.

    Today is was time to do some gardening in my butterflyreef.
    The corals were growing into eachother and towards the surface. Light, flow and space for the fish to swim were getting limited and it was time to do something about it.

    A dozen of acropora frogskin frags was the result of "a days work"


    Before, after and frags
