Well I don't any black star or black magma rocks in the tank but some are on the darker side. It's gonna be a while before they show any real color anyway...

Ah gotcha. Thank you for explaining. I got confused with the Dull and Washed out.

So dark and dingy it is. Got it. I 100% with you. I use what were labeled as rainbow rocks from the landscaping yard.
They are mainly bright white and then have a faint washing of pink, purple, blue, yellow, rust or green. They are realy a nice looking rock.

I also like Lime stone.

Default Update

So its been 4 months the dubs are beginning to develop nice wide bands and the bulu points are getting their signature spots. The only change I've made is the addition of my female spathodus erythrodon, after the loss of her male and then selling off my ilangi group she found herself in a 90 all alone with only a few syno lucipinnis to keep her company. She seems really happy in her new home.
