    Do you have a sweet looking milipora in your collection? Maybe, you have a colony that's getting big? The pieces don't have to be "super rare" or have a crazy break the bank price tag. I'm just looking for a few nice colored frags or mini colonies. Odds are, if you think it's nice looking. then it would be nice to me too.
    I know there is a pretty good chance someone in our club must have some to frag.
    I'm willing to buy the frags, but the BAR membership brotherhood would be even better. o_O

    I concur. It looks more like a green slimer, A. yongei, than a milli.

    Growing 5 different variations of milleporas at the moment, but none are at the fragging size. DTW is selling a 5 pack of millis on RC at the moment which is a pretty good deal.

    If you're looking for a better deal, then you're gonna have to go through the $10/20 bins at some place like Neptune. I've seen a variety of wild millis there including sunsets, bubblegum, and blue/purples.

    yes i agree with ALL of you. @ashburn2k frag didn't really look like milipora to me. (but i wasn't gonna second quess him till others chimed in)
    And YES, I did see DTP posting on RCenttal. That's actually why i posted this. It was very tempting to buy his pack. But, I figured i would ask BAR members if they had any growing out of control, and were ready to frag. I always like to look within our club first.

    Just saw DTW's tank yesterday. Super clean healthy tank and his coral frags are very healthy.

    So, part of his pack includes the Copps' 24k millipora. For reference, Copps charges $100 for a 1" frag of that piece, so that should put things in perspective.

    I'm limited in space so I usually am pretty picky with what goes in the tank and stays in there. I usually pick up a few millis from the $10 bins and see how well they color up. Sunsets are pretty common in Neptune's tank and I don't really like the colors from them so I've given them away in the past. Here's some of the ones that I've found recently or kept from the $10 bins.

    For the named pieces, I would start out with the following: Copps' 24k, AquaSD rainbow, snipersps bubblegum, and the sapphire (Palmer's blue).

    wow those are some "prized" finds.
    thanks everyone for the input. Let me see if I can talk my other half into purchasing the mili frag pack from DivingTW.
    Although, I might be broke after buying @Bruce Spiegelman pack. :(

    This is an RR milli. Got it from a buddy so not sure how much it costs. Bleached and finally picking some colors up. The mother has an orange base with white tipped polyps.

    I got a mille from Golden Basket and WWC at the last coral farmers market. Golden Basket has very nice ones that I follow on Facebook.
