    Tell us something about them! Preuss glues all three on a rock and call them Wheels of Fortune. I bought one from them a week or two back. Would love for it to thrive.

    This is the story of these montis! The purple was a frag received on January from a friend. It was the size of a quarter! The red was purchased from a LFS on May and placed close to the purple. Then I purchased the green on July and placed it between the other two.

    It is amazing the growth. If the alkalinity drops they will start to fade in color. i have a calcium reactor that maintains calcium and alkalinity on target 8kh and 420 cal.

    Here some more photos
