New colony - Need an ID

They just got a shipment of corals in at Advanced Aquatics in Schaumburg... needless to say, I had to come home with one. Can anybody help me out with an ID?

I've taken three pictures under different lighting, you'll have to forgive my crappy camera. I'm still trying to get a better picture with the colors intact.

Daytime lights, no flash.


Daytime lights, flash.


Actinics only, no flash.


Thanks!
Ed

I have very similar one.

It was $49 or something like that. I don't remember exactly because I bought some other stuff while I was there... they got fish in as well

I'm trying to get a better picture, the color on this thing is nice and it's a shame I can't get my camera to really show it.

It's okay to admit that you love that avatar above all others!

Actually, an artist buddy of mine drew that a long time ago under the title of "Do not drink and fish". With my recent addition to reef tanks, he thought it would be appropriate.

<--------------Wow! Talk about originality! Rumor spreads about someone stealing and twisting my av. I have to come investigate.


I think you need to learn something about copyrights.... You see, my av is copyright protected. This also includes parodying my copyright protected av. This is obviously a blatant infraction of my rights. The OP knows I make signs, among other things for my job. The OP also stole my idea to put on that sign. Sure, the OP "changed" it to a fish, thinking it would be enough to throw me off. This is blatent copyright infringement and plagiarism.

I'm going to consult my old business partner, who just happens to be.... You guessed it, a copyright attorney. The OP shall be hearing from him shortly.

I also hold copyrights on Commas and periods, not to mention the space bar. Your egregious use of my copyrighted material will not be tolerated. "This aggression will not stand!"tm The Big Lebowski

Please pay me now, or remove the infractions from your post. Thank you.

I have a friend that told his kids that he invented the word "hello". They bought his story for years and told all their friends who told their parents who laughed about it

I took the liberty of removing your infractions from the above post. Please refrain from using said copyrighted materials from now on. Oh, and BTW, I now hold the copyright on that "fixed" post, as well.

It was, however, a funny story.

Wow Ray calm down. Ekrunch does obviously likes your avitar otherwise he would of not gone to the extreme of having someone make one to look like yours. Maybe Ekrunch does not have any orginality but at least he has good taste in Avitar's. I would of thought he would of atleast given you credit for the idea though.

SR702 : I'm getting you a spell checker for Christmas!

"... spotting this Avatar impostor ..."

Engine 7 : You're right... it's all downhill from here!
