40g breeder with Chinese LEDS. Tank was moved 1 month ago so will not be as stable as most of the tanks the other frags are going in. Also trying new things with this tank such as feeding corals and other additives I've never used before. The LED's are new as I used to run an ATI T5 fixture and still tempted to go back to it.

Same picture, attempt at making true colors. Still going seemingly strong, despite some challenges.

Still settling in. Haven't tried feedings because water quality was bad. Getting back on regular maintenance schedule. I think I see a numb (baby) poking through

Here is my guy, my strategy is to simply not move or touch the frag at all from day 1...

Here is mine. It's not coloring up like it did the first week nor is it too happy, but it grew a second polyp in a matter of two weeks

You all should have picked a more colorful polyp. Does it look better in person?

Much better in person.  It's hard to get a good picture of them.  

 

Here is the best pic I could get of it. Pic is under 20k radiums, UVL aqua sun and 454 t12VHO's, and reefbrite XHO's.20170409_225239_zpspz32ok1p.jpg

Quick update, I was feeling left out when most people seems to be having a second polyp coming in... during feeding today I noticed a baby polyp! I'm joining the 2 polyps club.

Algae bloom and phone pic so not the best picture... 1d04954111286f0bb76d2aa524d4f46e.jpg

But here's my polyp! Don't see a second one yet.

Here is my update.

All my zoas are doing really well now. Especially so since I've been dumping in all sorts of food into the tank. Flakes, reef roids, pellets, mysis, and baby brine. I've been dosing phytoplankton and Coral Accel too.

Seeing a little hair algae... but, whatever it takes!

Set up a chaeto reactor to account for the extra feeding.  I have one that sucks up all the nutrients from 3 auto feedings a day  :P

Looking good so far.   BTW in case someone has their frag melt please PM me and I will get you a replacement.
