For a lot of people its resale and trade.
I cant seem to remember the names of what I have.

I'll chime in with a quick pic. My 2 colonies both hail directly from BigR Corals.
This is a phone picture, unedited.

Thank you for the honest picture. This is very similar to what I seen in person.

WD is only nice under 20k.
No way any of these WD will look good in my 10k lighting T5.
My white is real white, My yellow is real yellow, My blue is real blue
Google what ATI use for their 10,000k spectrum combo.
Most modern leds are tune to 12,000k to 14,000k spectrum when all the leds are put 100% full power.

I just got a great deal on a frag so I had to do it. It's definitely a nice coral and I'm excited to watch it grow out.

I tried to get a somewhat decent and realistic pic of my frag. I'm a terrible photographer and I'm using my phone. It is a very nice coral but I couldn't capture its true colors. It has hints of pink and purple that I hope will intensify when I put it into my frag tank. I will say it looks better in person than it does in my pic. It's in QT at the moment and it has been dipped twice. Walt Disney on the left, Homewrecker on the right

Here's my WD photo under Kessil AP700 (daylight setting) and T5 (blue+ and coral+).

This is what I see in person. Under the blue setting on the Kessil, the pink parts look more purple and the body looks greenish.
