Thats how I found your thread! Thanks for the help guys. You learn something every day! I ended up trading the torch in today for a yellow tipped hammer. Not as many heads as the torch, but nice. I will post pics of it on my tank thread tomorrow when its hopefully happy. The contrast between the frogspawn and the new hammer is going to look pretty nice I believe. The euphyllia garden looks great by the way!

Aw gee. I just caught onto the LPS garden a few years back when I was in the remarkable LFS in Scottsdale Az. I have spoken about them on my thread a few years back. They have a garden that's the size of a beach ball and all sorts of different colors. I said that's for me. So I have been slowly cultivating a spot on the reef that's all different types of frogspawn and some hammers.

The yellow hammers look great.. I have a nice wall piece of that as well. Did you get wall or branching?

Wowzers... I almost bought a little cap the other day, maybe 3" or so.. $50. That seem about right price wise? If so, that pic is worth thousands!

That's about right. Some go for crazy money. It would be a sin IMO to frag such a coral.
