Cespitularia Pict.
 
Here is a picture of Cespitularia taken with natural sunlight showing the true color of the coral. No photoshop or color enhancements were used. Even the picture doesn't do it justice, it just sparkles. I think it's now my favorite coral.

oooh aahh! very nice! *thumbsup!*

is it predominantly sunlit or is that just a bit of ambient sunlight hitting the tank?

The sparkles almost look as if they've been brushed on by a paint brush. Simply amazing. Great coral.

I think they should call it 'fiber-optics coral' instead. Great pic!

Tinyreef-
Natural sunlight enters through a nearby window mid-afternoon, and moves across the front of the tank.

Churchboy and Durmmreef-
Thanks. To see the way this coral just glitters in the light is most amazing. It's like the sparkle from a rare perfect diamond.

Thats a very nice piece, love the look, where did you get it if I may ask?

I bought it from a local reefer. He has a fantastic reputation, and is known for his serious high-end type of corals. Oh, nice guy, too!:)

I'm located in Michigan.
