Blue Lipped Pink Tenuis from ReefCorner.
I see your polyp extension and raise you one more with this unknown...maybe a spath?
Here are some other shots...excuse the ugly ulva algae, something for the potters to munch on.
Colony of miyagi, wasn't under the best lights
green dragon frag
random blue and green stag 6"
random green smooth acro and rose Mille next to it
pink and orange Hyacinthus
slimer close up
rescue abro frag; moved it up, look a polyp!
Blue tip green parillis maybe?
Tyree tricolor frag
ORA lantana monti. Good luck finding that one anywhere lol. Side note I HATE ORA plugs...
My ugly looks a lot like a Miyagi. I have no idea what it is.
I will take the unknown Stag and the Hyacinthus thank you very much.
The first unknown looks like Millepora, nice coloration.
That miyagi is a very ugly brown currently. Can't wait for the deep purple like my other miyagi colony.
I'm always open to trade
And I thought so too, but the axial corallite is flatter and more pronounced than a typical millepora.
The problem is, there are waaaay too many purple with green base tort like acros lol.
On a side note, I think loripes and nasuta are very closely related species.
It's this one, not sure could be an Enchinata, just not sure.
Nawww not Nausta and Loripes. I got this Nasuta from Ken at ReefCorner, it's growing well and coloring up, it's a wild Nausta.
Loripes and Granulosa, yeah I have to go and look.
I know polyps are not something to ID by, but I've never seen echinata with anywhere near that much polyp extension. Looking at that darker picture, I believe I have the same or very similar, both in my tank and at one of the displays at work. I'll take pictures when I get a chance. My piece is barely .5", the other is about 1". Mine looks like a vermiculata, but flow and lighting can change growth way too much.
Looking at corallite structure and growth patterns (of colonies), they look similar to me. Maybe it's a case of convergent evolution.
I need to stop posting late, I did not mean loripes at all. Lol
Separate names with a comma.
