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!

Looks like a Hollywood Stunner Chalice.

Sort of look like my polyps

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 :thumb:

I've got a piece about that size, yeah they really pop under actinics!

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.

What did you pay for it? Might get one. Seen them for $13.50 on spikescorals and my lfs has about the same price.

Nice peice! Sadly my LFS won't go under $20 for frags :'(

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.
