Yeah... it was only a matter of time! I think she's nicknamed me "The Enabler."

So MsBearCtr... are you looking for what's in the picture you posted, or a Pectinia Lactusa? I just happened to get the 3-volume Veron coral book for my birthday the other day (WOW... 17 lbs of books about corals!) and looked up the Pectinia Lactusa. While some of them *kind* of look like a platygyra, the pectinia have much deeper and broader valleys.

I really think the picture you posted is a type of platygyra, and now that you've mentioned the coloration you're looking for, I think I remember seeing that coral on LiveAquaria maybe? At least somewhere I remember seeing a platygyra with pink valleys and purplish/brownish ridges.

If I see one at any of my haunts, should I tell you? I mean... I wouldn't want to be accused of feeding your addiction or anything, but we all have to look out for each other, right? (Plus I'm done buying for a while, so I have no problem telling you where the good ones are!)

It's always Kurt's fault (or Ziggys).

Have a look at these pics of Pectinia Lactusa

It's probably a good thing that I don't have 17 lbs of books about corals.....I'd be broke and divorced too!

C'mon Enab.....er...I mean Kurt, if you see this please, please let me know. I need this badly.....(Jeeze! I think I'm a coral junkie).

And as for you Ziggy....you're not innocent here either! You go posting those pictures of your new corals and then tease us with promises of fragging in the future! For Shame!! You know that cmor has absolutely no self control when it comes to corals (welcome to my world cmor).

Nuts! I just went on the site and he updated it and therefore removed the coral since it was sold.....Oh well, you'll just have to wait until I get it and post a brag picture of it.
