    Im confused, is this a color morph of wire coral, or something completely different?

    Hey trent,

    Hey bill, good to hear from you! That is a shame about the power outage. Was it that massive storm over July 4th that got you?

    I am limited to what I have also because I had a copper build up but I can try and hook you up. What are you keeping now a days? I won't be able to make it to the swap since I'll be out of town. :(

    I wouldn't call it a color morph as nps corals can come in almost any color. Their color is genetically programmed so "morphs" are uncommon in nps.
    It's just green and orange, really cool combo and just looks super cool.

    Yeah, the Dericho storm got me, I had an infestation of flatworm I was preparing to treat that weekend(I bought 2 bottles of flatworm exit just to make sure I got them all this time!) but the storm hit an hour after I got home friday night, and the power went within 5 minutes of that, on day 4 the flatworms must have had a mass die-off and the toxins basically suffocated the poor fish :( At 2am I heard the clowns gasping at the surface but there wasnt anything I could do for them, the next morning I found all the fish dead. wasn't till 2 days after the power came back I that I realized the flatworms were all gone and the skimmer was full of the reddish brown bodies. Amazingly 90% of my corals survived :)

    It's all good at the moment, all thats in the tank are my RBTA's (5 now, the large one split last week!) the Hammer coral (that I should learn how to frag, it's about the size of a softball and got about 20 heads now), a few stray chalices and my cuc.

    No fish at the moment but I plan on bidding for the pair of ORA snowflake clowns donated to the club by Mr Coral to be auctioned to the highest bidder with poceeds going to the club8). also one of the club members is looking to trade a yellow candy hogfish for an RBTA or 2 which I happen to actually have to trade :p

    And ofcourse tomorrow is Frag Fest... last time I came home with a dozen free frags :joker: I try and post picks when I get home

    It looks sweet!
