gflat's Frags for the Swap

Still working on some decent pics. I can't get the color to work out on most of them... I've got some larger pieces I won't post here, but if interested in large LPS, let me know. I got several things for Jenn's tank this summer, but when I finally got it all put together a few weeks ago, it was already full from other things. Amazing how that happens. A 4-5" Favia, 5-6" Favites, 8-9" Acan echinata (rainbow-esque-mottled with light blue, greens, browns, etc., with some orange in the mouths), and a 7-8" Turbinara peltata.

Common zoas



Reddish with neon green center Protopalythoa. vestitus?


Pink and Green Palys


Isaurus tuberculata? (snake polyps). Heads open up to look more like zoas at night.


Leptastrea pruinosa (lavender/brown with green centers)



Wild SM monti


Acro chesterfieldensis?

Green/yellow soli/efflo


ORA valida


ORA Pink mille


ORA nana (has light blue tips)


ORA aculeus (neon green)


Green polyped mille (picking up a reddish/rose hue)


Purple tipped caroliniana


Lavender tipped, purple polyped acro (sold to me as austera, but I'm not convinced, at all)


Sold to me as A. florida from RM, but not very similar to some A. florida shots I've seen. Light blue/purple tips

Duncannopsammia axifuga. I'll only have a few of these (loath to cut the colony).

Actinic shot


A number of Aussie acans. They've been cut for several weeks now, just haven't gotten any pics together. I've got them suspended in the acan tank, so I haven't been able to get any good shots. I may try moving them for photo opps. I tried to stay small with them (2-6 polyps).

I also have a few blue A. hokesmai, blue tipped stag (formosa?), green digi, green slimer, Pocillopora (pink/green and green), light blue A. gomezi, ORA torquise stag, Neon green Nephthea (I call it a Nephthea, anyway). I'm working on the gomezi and hoke pics. If anyone wants pics of anything else listed, let me know and I'll see what I can dig up. I've got some other little odds and ends, too (tank cleanup, etc.).

$20/polyp. There will likely be two 2 polyp frags, but I'm not sure yet. I hope to cut it this weekend.

Gary- I'm definitely interested in a piece of that leptastrea. I have a couple of other color varieties and they are definitely a neat coral. Let me know what you want for it...

Brian-I'm going $20 on the Leptastrea (~1"x"1, but probably larger, depending on the chisel work).

Lindsey-$20 on all. The ORA are not as big as the others (~1" or so and single branched for the most part). The others should be all bulkier frags of at least 1.5" or so.

saycheese-$20 a frag on those, too. I'm hoping to get around 8 polyps per frag (maybe more-the rock they are on is solid, so I'm not sure how the cookie will crumble). I plan to have everything (fragging, anyway) finished up this weekend. I'm down to the hammer and chisel pieces.

BTW, nearly all of my non acan frags will be in the $15-25 range, some being less, some being more (have a couple of nice sized Pocillopora mini colonies, etc.). All corals have been in my system for at least 6 months and have had no signs of pests on anything (zoas, acros, etc.). I may have planaria, though. I personally see them as a food source, but I have a couple of hungry wrasses. I haven't taken stock in my acans yet (can't really see them all to well where they are and got the plumbing in for my tank room this week, so I've been busy). More pics to come...

Lindsey- They will all range from $15-$25, dependng on size. The $20 size should be around 1.5" or so (most are ~1.5"), The ORA are going to be around an inch, so they are a bit smaller than the rest (cost me a lot more than the others...). I've got a small selection of ORAs (a couple of the German green with blue polyps, aculeus, chips, nana, valida, etc.), and plan to price them all at $20.

Not sure if this will help much, but here are my Acans somewhat separated out by pricing. Check out my mad (three deep rum runner) Paint skillz.

Hey Gary is the Leptastrea pruinosa (lavender/brown with green centers the ones that Casey had? If so do you have any of his other colonies? BTW I saw him today @ the critter he got a nice wrasse.

Wow, Gary... you are making me want to spend too much money!

Are you preselling those, or just giving us a preview?

Looks like its going to be a "Acan swap" not a "frag swap"!
