Thanks. Yes I got a 2 inch frag in March 2012 that browned out - I had high phosphates. Took about 6 months to get it happy again then it grew slowly. It didn't turn into a beauty till a nearly 9-10 months later. Then it was the crowning glory of my old RSM tank. When I upgraded a year ago, the colony hated it and began necrosing on me. I will left with 2-3 bits. I cried myself to sleep every night I swear. Anyway - one year later with a lot of love it's back. And I have a back up colony which is what I frag. I don't touch this main colony.

Not surprised, your current location is too perfect, many near by, no two hour drive to contemplate and your pics are just to envy

Thanks, the people on the list though are from all over the country, they're from another forum I belong to. Folks don't mind getting just one frag shipped.
