      One frag available. Standard rules apply. 2 frags back in before trading, swapping, or selling. Tank journal and updates every 6 months required.

      I think they look like green Kenya trees

      I am not familiar with Lithophyton, think it's a leather like Capnella, and don't know if it will do well in a mixed reef. I have a cabbage from you in a clown tank that is doing well but I don't know if more leathers would be good for the clowns. Also, does Lithophyton spread easily like Capnella Kenya tree?

      Did you mean lithophyllion?
      Of which there are several types, according to google search. Never heard of them myself.
      Looks interesting though.

      Yes, pictures needed.

      Oh very cool type of coral! I think that is Lithophyllon. I picked up two in different colors at the frag swap and they're doing great in QT but I've never had them in a regular tank yet so maybe I could join this chain later after I have success with those.

      I'd like to have the frag if it's still available. Where are you located?
      Thanks

      From frag swap. Sorry whoever brought them - I have your names at home but am in the mountains now. Under Kessil 80 in QT they are red and gold:

      Those were both labeled lithophyllon? Hard to see.

      Going in to check on things at the school this afternoon and refill reservoirs (off this whole week plus a smoke day last week) and will try to take better pic. I had never heard of Lithophyllon until the swap.

      Golden with yellow spots (mouths?):

      Red with light green or blue mouths:

      No time to clean tank glass or adjust lighting. Or learn how to take good photos.
      Very furry looking. I think they look like psammacora or pavona. So they are not just encrusting but have a lumpy growth form? I love them and have to decide where to put them.

      Orange looks like psammacora to me
      Can't tell on the second. Could be leptoseris maybe.
      Both look cool!

      Orange one is a c3po lythophyllon not a psammacora
      Red one could be lythpyllon too. Still hard to tell. Looks like it has the little tentacles though...

      It is funny -
      That red one in the middle looks a whole lot like a dead coral covered in Cyano.
      :)
