    I usually don't get rid of sps, but I need the space for the frags that I just picked up from RAP. These are all grown in pieces that are either encrusted or are mini colonies depending on who you ask. Asking price is way less than half of what I paid for the original frag and definitely a steal if you pick up the set - $100. Pictures are of the actual coral that you'll receive. Pick up in Santa Clara or meet over at Neptune.

    I'm listing this on BAR first before I release it on the larger forums since I want to give you guys first dibs on them. The prices will be slightly higher as well when that happens.

    This piece has a very unique growth structure and could be the centerpiece in someone's tank. Picture taken with sunlight hitting it. $20

    Another piece that's coloring up. Also basking in the sunlight, but you can see the decent base colors and the pink tips. $20

    If you've ever been to CRC, you'll see the mother colony of this piece. This is the CRC rainbow, which hasn't colored up on me yet due to the times where the alk wasn't stable. The mother has very beautiful pink base. It's finally growing and pushing up new nubs. $20

    Another one that's grown in. Green base with pink tips. $20

    This one has a beautiful mint green base with purple tips. It's been growing back towards the flow so you only see the front branches in this shot. $20

    BC spainbow. One of my favorites due to how easy it is to take care of and for its beautiful colors. My original colony STN on me so I broke it apart into two groupings. I'm still keeping the larger piece and this is the smaller of the two. $40

    I'll take the spainbow if no one is buying the set

    Dude, your PE is crazy. Makes all your corals look like millies.

    Thanks! They're pretty normal polyp extension for me in the daytime. When I came back from RAP and was putting the new sps in when the lights were out, it was even crazier then.

    Yeah, that first one is a beauty. I would keep it, but I need the space for the RR The Vinh, which is similar.

    That’s what I thought it was when I saw it but figured you would have mentioned it’s name if it was.

    It went from Doc Aquarium to Elegant Corals and eventually to Calikid.

    hahaha, ok.

    Edgar is the BAR lurker :D
    I'm not jealous or anything, my "tank" is on the dirty side and I'm sure these corals would die very quickly, I was just curious who's getting the goods.

    Aren't you out of space in that 40? These are slightly larger than the normal size twigs. :p

    I wasn't expecting to sell these pieces so soon. I went down to RAP with the expectation to pick up 2 frags only. Only issue was that the seller was so generous that he gave me 3 extras (RR firecracker, RR wolverine, RR unnamed yellow). The others were deals that were too good to pass up. Went down for 2 sticks and came back with 9 instead. Need the space to mount the new ones.
