Wow that looks...AMAZING. How much DID that cost you? Looks like you got some new LEDs too. What kind are they? Stunners perhaps? afro afro afro afro

unfortunatly it has to come apart, to some extent.it is simply too big of a coral at this point in time both financialy and aggresivly so i will be offering out frags for a proper price Rolling Eyes supposedly this guy is super high on the scales of defense.it will destroy anything that touches it.fortunatly it seems to have no sweepers and grows super slow.you should see this thing under actinics and then you will crap your pants Razz
not really but i know you will want some redskull.

No joke. I dont know what causes it. But it will go like months and be fine then one day they arise. You saw the reach it had to get to my frogspawn. It was like 8-10 inches away. I am sure your bright green brain on the sand in your 55 is similar. The whole thing is like one big fuzzy mass.

Its on the list of things to frag.there just hasnt been the demand for it that i thought there would be.people see it and are like thats pretty cool.then i am like its worth X amount to me and that usualy scares them away.if i knew that people wanted some and and were willing to trade/spend its worth then i will certainly cut it.infact i am going to cut a small pice for one of my other tnaks and might just slice a couple extra but for now i have little incentive especialy how lethal it is.
