coral id please

Picked this up today for 10 bucks and can't remember the name of it for the life of me. I tried looking it up with no hope. I found montipora that kinda looked like it but I think it started with a b or d. Any help much appreciated!

I agree FlReefer...they look gorgeous under those actinics (or moonlights)!
Militaryminded1, those are zoas, they are not a LPS coral like a chalice is. Looking good though

That would be awesome if it wad the Hollywood stunner. If so I got a good deal. Definitely not zoas though there are some orange bam bam zoas behind it. Your zoas look like dragon eyes.

Try negotiating and comparing prices to online prices. They'll want your business for sure b/c online stores are out competing them. Maybe buy a bunch and ask for a discount b/c you got a lot.

I've tried working with them and the only deal they do is 3 frags for $50 :/. But I have gotten decent deals on larger colonies.
