Here are a couple more pics of them. These are still with my cell phone our camera is now in Virginia Beach for the weekend.




The Superman Montipora is one of those corals that everyone wants but doesn't want to pay the $$$ for. The Superman Monti is an encrusting montipora not a plating one. Its usually purple to blue based with bright red polyps, that is how it got the name superman. It's not a very fast growing coral and does require very good lighting and excellent water conditions.

The Hawkins Blue Echinata is considered a "deep water" coral. It has a smooth appearance with more tubular branches.

Here is a better pic of the coral from Liveaquaria

Moderate to high lighting. It's not a coral that you want to just drop in the tank because of the cost. Liveaquaria has them for $99.99 and that's for 3/4 of an inch. It is a limited offer ORA coral. From what I read on ORAs site they started with it in 2006 and have been growing it since but they only sell so many per month. I also want to get the Phils Granulosa that is a cool coral as well.
