  1. I can make one frag of this WMPN Montipora, it gets best polyp extension in the evenings, and prefers to be on the bottom 3rd of my tank. I have a 6x39W Powermodule and my tank is 16" tall.

    I can deliver this frag the week of Christmas, within reason, or you can pick up in Alameda or Emeryville.

    Oh, I'd toss my name in the hat. If it's a flip between this or the setosa, I'd rather get this.
    And I still think the Raiders won't get more than 6 points :D

    Looks like an orange nodosa to me.

    I was told it was a Mystic, my camera skills blow, the color is like a Magenta/pink with the electric blue polyps. Good thing I didnt pay a premium price for it

    Isn't the one on the left a nodosa and the one up for grabs is the monti on the right?? Just wondering, not saying anyone is wrong..

    Levi, the one on the left looks like a Setosa. The one on the right more like a Nodosa, though mine does not have electric blue polyps. I dunno if it is Mystic or Nodosa.

    Ah newbie mistake :), nodose, setosa..... aren't they usually both orange at least :)

    yup, but a very different orange. The Setosa also has an unusual growth pattern.
     
  10. Setosa is on the left, what I thought was the Mystic is the one on the right, and in the backdrop is a monti I got from ocean treasures that was too close to the ORA Red Planet, and got burned because of it. Had to move it away. Like I said, it was sold to me as a Mystic, at the time, i didnt really put any attention to the name, just liked the color so I will call it a knockoff...and remove the poll. He never called it an LE or AE coral.
     
  11. Hears the pic of the whole setosa

    The guy I bought it from got it last year at the BACFM

    Don't remove the poll. Just because it wasn't sold as an LE or AE doesn't mean it can't be a DBTC-x. Actually some of the corals that most belong there are corals that don't have those designations because the big names in the industry haven't seen them yet!

    Like I said, I'm not sure if it is a mystic or a nodosa. But it is a worthwhile discussion. After all, Levi already learned what a Setosa is! ;)
     
  13. :)no if it becomes something thats great...LOL...I thought you were calling me the newb. The other two I have the setosa and appleberry are the real deal. The setosa in high light, started to turn pink so I tossed it in the lower third, where it went back to that deep salmon color. The way I have the plug on the rock, may be why it is growing the way it is. I just balanced it up there, and a few weeks later found it encrusting on the one spot where the rock actually touches the back of the plug. And started getting the nodules radiating from the edges.

    Thanks Charles :p
     
  15. I'm gonna take a gamble at 13 points here(of course that would be four field goals, no touchdowns), lol. I guessed they would score 17 on the other coral you have, I will make the gamble on this one! Thanks! Beautiful pieces by the way!
     
  16. sfsuphysics wins this one with "6"...raiders scored 7 pts. from kick return 90+ yds....

    Where do you live, any good LFS nearby?

    I live in San Francisco, good LFS is really a personal opinion, Ocean Treasures is really nice, they have some really nice coral tanks, but we can work something out to how I'll get the piece.

    Going to meetings? Maybe involve a 3rd party if you live far away, etc.
     
  20. I live in Alameda, it's no big deal, I have to go to the wharf tomorrow
