      Yes. There are two different coral that are popular as birds nest, green pociliopora damicornis, and the pink tip seriatopora.

      Almost. Seriatopora is "birdsnest". Several colors exist including green. Poccilopora damicornis is different.

      Seriatopora is in the Family Pocilloporidae. So same family as Pocillopora at least.

      @Mark B @Coral reefer I am under the assmption that the left one is pociliopora damicornis. I am rethinking now, and going through the article again, probably you are correct, this is S. caliendrum

      I like the one you gave us more. The green is much more vibrant.

      I see a top and a bottom. Neon green seriatopora (could be caliendrum) on top. Green poccilopora damiconis on bottom.

      One question.. my wife is not a member, but she will participate on the frag swap... how do I do her pre-registration and how to label her frags? Just a general question...

      I think he is looking at it on a desktop where as you're probably looking at it on your phone.

      Just do two PayPal transactions. If you want to be more specific you can put in the notes section the specific name of who it goes to. As far as labeling you can just use the same user name. It's mostly just so the recipient can contact you if they have questions.

      Got it.. thanks

      I just asked Kim P. if she could pass along the swap info to NVR. From looking around I don't really see alot of excitement or posting about the swap. I hope we get a good amount of people show up. Maybe bump some posts? :rolleyes:

      We need more info on Raffle prizes. I'm offering up a frag of The Vinh but it doesn't look like it is drawing much attention. Maybe a frag of something else? I'll see if I can frag an eye off my other CB chalice.

      Maybe a frag of WD?

      We AtLeast got the word out to a lot of people at the coral farmers market.
      Maybe @Corallus can post a couple of raffle items?

      I just posted on r2r and rc with it. I'm not on Facebook but is someone able to post it on the bars fb page if it's not already?
