But heres some shots of the new coral. It looks much better in person I think, alot more color to it.
It looks great! Nice piece!

I love it. Very nice coral. Looks kind of like the Birds Nest I saw last weekend. I almost bought it but decided on the Frogspawn instead. Seriously thinking of stopping on the way home tonight.

Yep, it's a nice hue of neon green, plus it was big enough so you can actually see it without having to search for it. LOL I love my birdsnest, though I'm now rethinking if it IS a birdsnest. I think it may be a stylophora instead...

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

It doesn't look like the Birds Nest I was looking at last weekend but it is gorgeous whatever it is. LOL The LFS I was at was one of the most knowledgeable in Atlanta so I trust she knew what it was when I asked her. I had long "fingers" with a blue main trunk and light blue polyps all over it. Very nice. But I love that one. When you find out what it is, let me know. I want to find one.

The stylophora is still an SPS and i would think related to the birdsnest as it looks so similar. here is the link for the stylo

Thanks twitch.

I love shopping day! And tomorrow I have a frag/reef club meeting so I'll most likely be getting more. And I emailed with the guy from the raffle from last weeks convention and he keeps saying corals, as in plural so I think I have some nice pieces coming my way. Sooo excited! I'm also thinking of starting to add coral to my cube now since I'm getting so many. lol I'm almost filled up in the 125g kinda, unless I do some major renovations again. hehe...
