    AWESOME frags mofro! Superbly packaged (they travelled in style ;)) as well; one of the "extra" frags is now 2 frags but other than that those are the most unstressed looking shipped SPS I've seen... The colours are amazing, I hope they stay that way (or at least close) :p

    They look like beacons of blue under actinic, and actually kinda under normal lights as well...

    the question was if they were under actinic or not, pref not as was pointed out re frag one which was under actinic, but that is history, the frags still looked great:razz: :razz: :razz:

    Ivan, any suggestions on mounting the frags with the tube like branch holder?

    At present the units are in-bedded in the substrate, just to get them use to there new lighting enviro, but I would like to mount them high up on the reef soon.

    I have the blue and purple colours, going transform my reef soon as they are BIG boys :thumbup:

    Yip, they wedge in between crevices in rocks very well. The coral will encrust whatever part of the plug is exposed, and then encrust onto the rock. The plug is very easy to cut shorter with a sidecutter.
