    Hi Everyone:

    Just wanted to see if someone local in the club might have a piece of either coral. Let me know! TIA!

    I have the Japanese one, which is a slow grower. Won't be fragging this one for awhile since it's such a slow growing softy. Buddy just picked up the OG weeping willow which I'm guessing he won't frag until at least 6 months from now.

    So is it actually a deepwater coral? Or someone just threw that term on there because?

    I’ve read differing opinions but the consensus seems to be that some of the early green toadstools came through Asia. Regardless, I think the defining features are super green polyps (fairly long) and super green body as well.

    Definitely interested in the toadstool depending on how they look under regular lights (and cost of course). My Tyree toadstool looks really green under blues but under regular lighting the body is a pretty dull tan, although the polyps stay fairly green.

    One defining feature is that these tend to be very slow growers. I am curious how long your supplier has had the frags growing.

    Any ideas on pricing and when you’d get them in?

    JP toad under whites.

    Under bluer lighting, it's a very nice green throughout. Mine is the middle one on the top row. Bottom left was disturbed so that it would withdraw its tentacles to show the green base.

    Here are the willows from buddy's frag tank.

    The OG weeping willow.

    This is another variant. Came from a personal collection. Indo-based.

    Is that encouragement to others or are you saying that’s what you currently do? :). I still need to find some time to
    make my way up the hill to pay you a visit in person.

    Good eye. That's actually my tiny frag there, that was fragged off the base of the other one there and is now mounted. Just waiting for its eventual delivery to NorCal.
