Opinions on some more corals.

Lemme run some corals by you:

Zoas, these are a disgusting brown colour in any light that isn't blue... When under blues they are a fantastic orange and purple fluorescent colour.
I have no clue what they actually are but does £37 ($55) sound reasonable?



Maze, typical fluorescent green and red colouration, perhaps a 3" piece.
£29 ($45) seems pretty decent to me.



Blasto's, rather dull rust coloured outside with a nice neon green mouth.
£31 ($47).

I'd do the maze if the spot on the left isn't recession and pass on the blasto, just can't keep them personally.

Is there a particular way to tell if it's recessed or not?

Yeah, if the area looks exactly like the coral...just covered in algae or whatever else rather than flesh.

Your tank is dominated so far by softies, along that theme are mushrooms, a million different kind of encrusting polyps like GSP. Zoas, and maybe even a LPS like frogspawn or hammer coral.

I'm that case, no.

It just looks like rock on the left.

Yeah, I'd LOVE a Euphyllia.

Unfortunately my LFS only stocks multiple-headed, gigantic and expensive specimens.

The only member who frag's anything just happens to be the boss and also just happens to not be in.

I could always try online...

Sure, I've have pretty good luck with on line orders. My son runs the web site for a guy out east that we buy most all our corals from.
