    Most colorful corals...I wish I had

    Post by ericpkeith on Tue Feb 04, 2014 6:38 pm

    I've been trying to find some really cool corals that just blow my mind. Thus far, the two I seem to like the most are the following.

    A rouge millepora: I rarely such rich and subtle color in sps coral (excluding montipora)


    And of course Aussie Acans...which come in so many rainbow colors. I personally like this one...though a bit clownish.
    Truly the peacock of the coral world.


    What are your favorites? Do you actually have it...cause I sure don't.

    All great corals.  Anything from Aussyland is going to cost you. Most people focus on sps but there are a lot of great softies out there.  Bounce Mushrooms are awesome but way outside my budget.

    Anyone ever see Darth Maul Porites?

    Great looking torch coral. My first reef tank was nothing but softies. Torch Coral and Frogspawn were corals I wanted really bad but out of my price range as I had that tank when I was in college.

    I'm too distracted to post a picture at the moment (so posting a link to a good pic), but a coral I wish I had, I just bought from Crystal and Bogden, which is a Becker tort.

    I also really like ATL Raspberry Lemonade Nasuta
