Personally have visited Oceanlife, Urban Aquatics, FJW, Infinity Fish and several others. All great places.
    That would be awesome actually, I'll shoot you a pm! Might have some free frags to, still looking at things!


    Ok, going to bug y'all for some coralid pics. I've searched, I've found things that might kinda sorta be....I'm lost. Can anyone tell me what these are? Sorry for the phone pics, I will try to get the GH4 charged today.

    these have an orange dot in the middle, hard structure, then the green and orange part. are they LPS or some kind of softie?


    The ones with the "tentacles" and the bubbles on the tips. There's a two headed one very similar to the left, and three of the same frag on the rack. These are torches of some kind?


    It's actually hunter green with whiteish bubble tips. Torch?


    The green..... lump in the middle. BRIGHT neon green, hard as a rock. The one similar to it to the right is not hard, and is a different coral I think


    Blue one front and center. I'm not sure if this is some type of SPS, or a colony of blue soft polyps. I'm leaning towards SPS...... I actually thought it was dead SPS at first, but the better I've gotten the water, the better it seem to be.



    There's a tone od polyps, a couple kinds of mushrooms, and severial xenia variants. All the softies came out of the DT for now.

    I can't figure out how to edit, but....

    So the lump is a favia maybe? And the first one as well? I think I may have what I thought was mushrooms on another frag that are some kind as well, will have to get better pics

    Great mix of things there -- not sure I am commenting on the same ones you are referring to (and I am still learning myself) but here goes:
    Type of favia
    Hammer
    Duncan
    montipora
    blue star polyps is my running guess.

    Hopefully, this at least gets you a starting point for your google-fu to help find something more specific. Also, hopefully, some of the more salty pro's can help out as well!

    Keep improving your water quality and checking parameters and be amazed the changes you see!

    Cool stuff

    Ok so the blue star polyps are not going in the tank(read to much about what they'l do lol!), the monti(green leaf plate apparently) and the hammer are going in. Thank you a ton on those!

    I don' think the green one is Duncan, I actually have a fist sized Duncan in my DT already, the one is much larger at the base and has much longer tentacles. Thank you for the id's, starting to get a feel for what I'm looking at. Also seems the other a looked at is a maroon colored favia.

    My thoughts - are best guesses. I am no expert yet on my coral ID -- thus I google a ton myself!

    You where right on with the others, as soon as I googled I found what I was seeing! And from the pic it kinda looks like my Duncan lol

    Looking again -- the mis-identified duncan looks more like a torch (not sure because mine crashed). Some torches have the 'ball' on the end like those. The bluer harder one is gorgeous, but I don't have a guess.
