    Its about 5 inches across...and I have broke it off a couple times..so I have the big boy and a couple quarter size pieces growing...when it was gifted to me it was the size of a dime...my frags are free..that's why I try to give frags away...like I said..you pay it forward...karma means more to me than the points you get on this site. ; ) Its a way of life. 8)
    edit..I have had it about 10 months.

    The picture showed a very dark vibrant green frag. It was called something like green apple, I forget at the moment. I'll take a picture of it once I received it next week and acclimate it.

    I too share a love for tablers. I ended up with way more red monti than I intended to lol. And while fragging and working in the tank I inevitably broke some here and there. This shelf is the largest of the frags that broke off the two very large orange monti caps.

    And here is the rest of the collection. Shots all taken today on my phone.
