    DBTC Rules:

    1. Using this DBTC as a backup in the event that my piece dies. If it does, then I would like a frag of this to regrow.
    2. Frags are not to be sold. They are to stay within BAR. This is a test to see if the members can adhere to the rule. If it does hold, then I'll open up more of my corals up to DBTC.
    3. Keep me updated if this thing dies on you. If not, then please update the thread with the chain info as it's passed along.

    What my mother colony looks like.

    What the tiny boogers looks like on 8/9/16 when I mounted them onto the plugs.

    What the indicative frags looks like. I have 3 in total, but holding probably the bigger of the 2 in the pic for a buddy of mine. There's a 3rd one that's not pictured that will be offered instead. All are similar in that they've been healed for awhile and as you can see encrusted (3/4" plugs).

    Lineage: Direct from Adam at BC.

    Care: Pretty hardy SPS overall. It does require the standard requirements for SPS, with the mother sitting in moderate light (~200-250 on the meter under LEDs) and like all SPS likes stability.

    2 frags currently being offered. If you're interested, pick a number between 1-100 and I'll choose the two winners.

    Pickup in Santa Clara or Neptune during normal business hours or at Aquatic Collection on the weekends.

    Neat little coral, reminds me a LOT of the ORA Pearlberry though, but whatever shops assigning names to corals that already exist isn't exactly new :)

    Thanks for being generous with this Eric, I'd ask but I'm on a SPS hiatus for now until I can figure out how to keep them again! :D
  3. I would love one. I'm doing well with SPS frags lately. Good growth in my moistly SPS frag tank.

    Not really. There's a distinct difference in coloration from this versus the ORA Pearlberry. Here's the ORA Pearlberry for reference. ;)

    Guess it's a lighting thing then, because a quick google shows many pieces similar to this

    But regardless of what it is called, don't want to derail your generous thread :)

    No I just like to play! :Dstill growing but right now my tank is experiencing a mini-crash but it is still alive and growing well. I need to figure out the CA reactor and the dosing pump situation soon.
