    Just wanted to get more details on what it is. And maybe see a main colony picture to see how it'll grow out. The piece I have is three separate branches glued down. They're all alive and I am curious on growth pattern.

    Holy crap, did Arnold win the tank?

    Either way, its the little things that I thought were neat, like the bucket with the letters, having the rubber flappers so there's no temptation to peek in :D

    Reposted the dropbox image. I guess DropBox doesn't normally allow you to "hotlink" images.

    By the way, that is an AWESOME macro shot!
    I will be happy when it grows out to a nice colony. Then it'll be DBTC time (or at least frag fodder). ^_^
    Thanks for putting that into the swap. I'm very happy!

    Its going to be some time before my mother colony is large enough to frag. Maybe in a month or two or if i accidentally break it. What size frag would be good for DBTC?

    Whatever size you make is fine. Generally it's best to give out the same size or better that you got when a chain is going, but since you'd be starting the chain, whatever size you frag is all good! If you wanna trade I'm good w a very small piece

    So I spoke with who I got the frag from (Matt F. from aquaexotic) and there is no need for a DBTC. Both Rich Ross and Matt F. have huge mother collonies of this, and get this, the colony I have comes from mother colonies that pre-date the one that ORA use.

    Wow cool! Dbtc would still be sweet cause neither of those guys is likely to do it these days.

    Hah, purpose of DBTC is to share and back up within the club but really just to share.. Otherwise, there'd be 'no need for DBTC' with any coral =P

    Very nice coral and one that I acquired a while back - Same colony as yours came from and have pictures of the mother colony on my phone ;) Remind me of what it's called...I've actually been wondering for a few weeks now.
