Lps update.

My 3 lps corals are all seemingly doing nicely in my tank. All fully extended, new head on acan, blastomussa has a new head too but can't see it when it's fully open. Hammer looks good although I must admit I have no clue how much extension it's supposed to do when open.
Any advice or comments are welcome.

The hammer looks like what they're supposed to look like. If you're getting growth then the coral like your tank. Since they're stony corals and growing them eats alk and ca, you might want to test your parameters a to make sure they remain high enough. I personally like my tank a bit more blue, but that's just a personal preference.

Got fiji purple leds at around 70 percent. Makes the purple and green pop out.

Tank looks a bit white as the sun is shining onto it as its low in the sky coming straight through the window. Stupid sun, not a problem in the summer as its that much higher.
