Favia Show Off Thread

The Sunburst and Baby's Breath thread got me all into exploring other morphs and colors that are out there, so this is a thread to show off those hidden gems and your favorite Favia corals...I'll start it off with a couple Tyree favorites that I would love to get my hands on

Tyree War and Peace...


Tyree Dragon Soul...

The War and Peace favia is the same as the one Hugo introduced right?

If it is I remember when he got that piece and was trying to sell me a frag. I liked it, but I was way into micros back then. Now I'm kicking myselft, I should've gotten a frag.

Very nice btw. very nice.

All Delight,
That is correct Hugo found it according to reeffarmers website " Hugo acquired the coral from an Indonesian exporter in September of 2006"

shoot, your close to Hugo right? next time you go see him hit him up for some of his hidden gems, especially if that is you in your avatar? I'd be giving stuff to you for free

Here's a couple of old photos. The War coral is about 5 times the size and the Favia is about 3 times the size and the eyes have really turned a bright yellow.

hmm, that purple & yellow was really a Favites, but it was still drop-dead gorgeous. Of course, if you feel you were cheated, I'd be happy to take it off your hands! LOL.
Nice thread & this is why I am addicted to ALL favid corals..

Kev - Hugo has all kinds of nice pieces. Just depends what you like. Lucky for me, we like alot of the same corals. He's more a SPS freak then LPS.

Jose - Wassup man. LOL, he sold you on that war and peace. Its very nice, I should've gotten it. Remember how big that colony was. I know you got a lot of nice stuff, post those pics.
