I know Birdsnest is rather common but I seem to have an overabundance. In order to make some space I'd love to trade with someone!
Apparently I don't know how to properly upload files.

Blunt tip I think. This is a photo of one of the larger frags I have. I'm not really looking for anything specific. I'm open to suggestions. I'm in Corvallis, OR.

PostSubject: the coral I have   Thu Apr 11, 2013 2:14 am

So i'll try and remember all the names of what I have:
fire trumpet
frogspawn
red sea fan {probably on its way out, a friend gave it to me}
richordea
birdsnest
mermaids fan
red candy cap-montipora
I believe a type of chalice, I have the name I can't remember, but it's turquoise and neon blue
candy cap
Then a neon plated coral that self frags

I'm not sure if I am forgetting any or not. But I would be interested in the blue polyp digitata. Could you maybe upload a photo?

I kinda collect plating corals such as the montipora so do you have anyn pics of you plating self fragging coral?I have red cap,pruple,green,and then some but there are so many inbetween that I would be interested in.if not now then maybe later.here is a pic of the digitata.its under T-5s with a high actinic ratio so as usual the coral looks differnt in ither peoples tanks.all in all it will be similar in care as you birds nest and grows pretty fast as well.

Here is an up-close view of the plated coral, but it doesn't do its color justice. So I have included another photo that's a little farther away. http://i72.servimg.com/u/f72/18/23/61/09/neon_p10.jpg

well I would love to trade you for a small piece of that whenever you feel it is ready.Looks like you have a pretty nice setup there.is that a chalice chilling further up in the tank?We should work out a trade time.

Yeah, Right now it's fragging itself into five pieces. I'd prefer not to speed it up and let it frag on it's own. So it may be a while. unless you have any suggestions. what type of plates do you have. if you are collecting i imagine you have a few cool pieces. Yeah, that is a chalice. I'm not sure what variety. I also have another chalice in the tank but it's a much harder to find piece. It's a watermelon chalice. I also forgot that I have a mummy eye and a huge piece of brain coral. I don't know how or why i forgot to list those. they are my 'harder to find pieces'. But i'd be more than happy to set up a time to swap birdnest with your digitata. Do you have any other pieces you'd be willing to trade.

you may also know more than I do but I have a friend that wants to sell me a miami hurricane chalice for 175 that has 25 eyes. it's a pretty sizable piece but I wasn't sure if that was a good price or not. your thoughts would be much appreciated.

I would love to do more trading and I have a large number of corals and have yet to make a complete list.I also have a coral band saw so no coral is unfragable Wink I also have a brain or two I could frag if persuaded with another type of brain.Basicaly I will cut most of my corals no problem as long as the return is similar.As far as pricing of the chalice I am not a good judge of paper value.

Sorry, I was out of town. I like a couple of those but i'd also be down for seeing more of your stuff. It's up to you. I liked the blue looking ricordia on the side, I forget the name of the other ones that look similar, as well as the darker favia looking coral. What is the the rear most coral. Is that a kind of toadstool?
I have a number of other corals but most are frags that I picked up and aren't developed enough to be fragged out.
As for the brain coral I'd be super excited to trade pieces. I have one giant one that I think has three mouths? It's a Wellsyphillia Brain. I have a picture of it from a bit ago but it essentially looks the same. I think now he has a little bit more blue and a light greenish looking blue. I just smashed my iphone screen and for whatever reason can't use the rear camera now. And my actual camera is an old piece of crap.
I'd be down for scheduling a meet up time and talking about what we have and are willing to trade and etc. I don't have a bandsaw available to me, here, that would work. So it would be advantageous if we did want to trade to have your help to do that. I'd like to avoid jacking my pieces up trying to frag them.

So the picture is a little bit old as I have traded several of the corals in the picture but as usual I always keep at least one in the bank.Yes the sarcophytons are a tyree green toadstool leather,really nice green.There is also a green montipora with bueish polyps and a green with white daisy polyped foliosa.all good stuff.as far asthe ricordia I have only one left wich I need to frag wich means it will only be a metter of time beofre one will be up for grabs.We could work out a time to chat a bit and do a trade..I am currently at home for a while do to an injury so it shouldnt be to much of a problem.Sorry to hear about the phone,thats certainly a setback.

Well I would be interested in your ricordia when it comes time to frag that out again. I'm usually busy-ish. Well randomly not busy. I'm a masters student so outside of a couple obligations and classes I'm pretty available to talk for an hour or two. Is there a specific time that would work well for you?
