I switched from XM to ReefLux bulbs at this point. The coral's color changes accordingly.

Excluding the March 2006 picture, every image was taken the same way with the same amount of zoom, the lens pressed against the glass. As you can see in the April 2006 picture above, it almost completely fills the frame.

And another picture slightly from above, to see the 'colony'.
A couple of tiny pieces broke off, but not wanting to waste any frags, they were glued to a new rock.
