    Hi Reefers

    A few weeks ago I received these pictures of golden torch corals destined for the USA.:eek:

    This is pictures after they have been acclimated for a few months, because they come from very deep they are not so brilliant when they land but soon develop into beauty's!!

    So after getting all info I ordered these.

    This is what they look, like
    UNDER Actinic only.

    But for reference sake I took these pictures with a flash.

    Saw some of these in Papua. They were 2-3m deep in mangrove areas. Quite an unusual look to them.
