  1. Pretty honest pic of the Jason fox home wrecker. It’s actually a pretty good grower. Bought the tiniest of all frags and it grew into this. The small frag pic is it on 3/26/2018 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Is this really an oregon tort?

    People get Cali tort and Oregon tort mixed up all the time. Similar names, colors and growth. The easiest difference is Cali tort usually has a green base but sometimes it doesn’t and that’s when it’s harder to tell a difference. That’s definitely the Oregon. Really awesome piece

    Like he said I see a lot of Staghorn’s being grown out for placement on reef but not much elkhorn. This is a great idea for the elkhorn since it’s so large and slow growing and harder to work with. The Staghorns grow quick enough to where I don’t think microfrag is necessary. I bet the stags grow so quick they wouldn’t have the manpower to keep up with it. Tiny frags in my tank easily can be wiped out by a cyano or GHA outbreak and survivability is much greater in larger pieces.
  5. I guess I should document growth on this one since a lot of people comment on it. Had a lot of trouble settling in but I think it’s done settled Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Grafted Millipora

    No no you can’t graft your own! It’s a super duper rare infection only obtained from mars! For the low low price of only 382492 you can obtain this rare frag! Kidding awesome article thanks for finding that

    Grafted Millipora

    I wish we knew which milli were grafted so this club could start some. My wild guess would be one of the more greener sunsets and bubblegum? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yea what if the pink part growth starts to take off and leaves the green stuff in the dark, taking over. Then you have a $25 milli. If all the offspring frags looks like this It’s a highly desirable piece. I’m not sure what will happen as I have never seen this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Is this a Colorado Sunburst ?

    Here it is a few days ago! The pink tip there is the giveaway that it’s not a sunburst. My sunburst had yellow or bright orange tip Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I have kept legit ones twice. They didn’t grow at all. Eventually died. Meanwhile my other bubble tips were growing and splitting like crazy. I won’t be buying another. However I think I have the same one you have pictured tommy, in the store I thought it had potential to be one. As soon as I got it home in my lights I knew it wasn’t. But it’s my fav nem and I’m going to enjoy the daylights out of it.

    Acropora Eating Flatworm ID

    Here is the flatworm if y’all couldn’t spot it. I’ll look at the thread after I cut a few frags and maintenance tank. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Pretty neat and disgusting pic I saw on the internet. AEFW eggs, there is a flatworm visible on the acro. Bite marks. Looks like they tried to stay hidden on the underside of the acro. Pretty classic symptoms. Trailmarks is another way to help spot them but I don’t see them on this one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
