I want this coral and can't find it....

does anyone have a suggestion as to further proceed in my pursuit to find a Pectinia lactuca? I've exhausted my searches on yahoo and google. I can find pictures of them but can't find a place to order them.

Is there a place that you know of that will take special orders?

This is what I'm looking for--

I was just going to say kinda the same thing... that picture sure looks like a platygyra and not a pectinia.

That's what I'm finding.....I've googled and yahooed (if that's a word) and I can find them, like the one in your link, but they aren't the ones that I'm looking for.

Could the one in the picture be something different? I don't think it's likely but I'm grasping at straws.

I'm kicking myself now, I'll probably never find another one like it. I had ordered it through extremecorals.com and they dorked up my order and didn't include it. When I called their customer service number they had already sold it so I was essentially S.O.L.

Rats! I'm sure Kurt had something to do with this!
