coral showcase thread

i was hoping to start a coral photo thread. i love looking at whole tank shots but i always wish i could see some close ups of peoples corals as well. so i figured if we had a thread dedicated to it it will help people with identifying there corals and seeing examples of colours and health. there will be a few rules.

1. corals only. if u are going to post a full tank shot that is fine as long as there are close ups of the corals in said tank

2. please try to include only clear shots. i understand not everyone can get crystal clear photos. that is fine. but if u have to squint to make it out then perhaps try the photo again before posting (i am not trying to be rude)

3. include camera type/exposure/settings if possible. this will also help people that are trying to improve there skills.

4. please put the name (common or proper) and the type (soft/sps/lps) if u know it

5. please use a photo uploader program like photobucket/imageshack. it will display a larger picture then the site uploader.

6. HAVE FUN!


i will include a few i have taken to start things off

green zoanthids.



pipe organ coral



ricordia mushroom



green zoanthids under blue leds



button polyps



green star polyps(top left) button polyps (bottom left) green zoanthids (right)



anenome





many of these were taken with different cameras unfortunatly so i cant really include the information.


im sorry if this is in the wrong section. just figured this is where the most traffic would be and it applys specifically to reefs.

They all look great. Do you know any of the names of them? People may be misunderstanding the rules. The pictures don't need to be professional quality. Just not blurry lol. Don't be afraid to post up.

Excellent. Is that first one a candy cane? And what are the 4th and last one? They don't look familiar.

It was sold to me as Kryptonite Candy cane but the more I look the more it looks like a trumpet...

The 4th one is a Acan


The last two are rock flower anemones so awesome.
