    I'll have two frags of WTF Psammacora available at the next meeting.

    This "ugly" coral has a little history, a history of being shunned. Frank Burr gave me this coral a while back hoping it would color up in my tank, it was brick red in his tank. He got the coral fro m Steve Tyree who said, maybe this will color up in your tank, it was brick red in Steve's tank. That's about it it's a brick red encrusting Psammacora that needs shade or low light, and clean water. An ugly coral that's been kicked to the curb.

    Oooh... I *have* to have a coral that both Steve and Frank turned down :D

    I'll start a whole series of Bizarro LE :D

    I'll pay people money to take the frags that I grow!

    I'll spam RC with pics of the coral so that I'll lose lots of money :D :D :D

    You can shill for me, Jeremy!

    Thanks Jeremy, this was one of the ones that never had a thread. I've got Norm and Rich down for these 2. Now "Skyler's Hydnophora" is the only one without a thread HINT HINT :)

    Jeremy,

    [/quote]I think I gave you a frag, but I doubt it's blue, not to say that it isn't. But this sucker has been all over the globe and is still Brick.

    [/quote] Levi, I gave Perry a piece as a DBTC, and put two piece into two different swaps, so at this point there is only one piece out there.

    You are totally spot on about the lighting for this thing. I needs almost nothing or it starts to fade.

    I'd love to have this little piece of history. What kind of conditions does it want? Super super low light and moderate flow?

    Pretty much seems to grow anywhere :)

    Super low is right. Actually the less the better. I picked up a frag a couple of years ago in a swap (just because I liked the name) and literally have it in a cave. Any light makes this thing pale out.
