My favorite is a small frag of Dual Blue Echinata that I got from Frag Farmer. Very beautiful coral. I have the oregon tort, purple monster, and icefire echinata among others but I like this one better.

For me it would have to be this Prostrata I got from Tyree, through Mike Paletta, back in 95 or 96. Had it for 10 years or so through many tanks and moves. ultimately lost it a couple years ago in my first and only battle with AEFW.

May you rest in peace, my friend......


By the way, if anybody got some of this from Tubs back in the day and still has it, I will make you an offer you can't refuse

Is that the tyree prostrata? Go in the New year's new pictures thread in this forum and look for one of my posts. I quoted a picture of the tyree prostrata that some guy had. You could pm him and see if he would frag it for you. Good Luck!

Unfirtunately, it's not the same. This came from before the Reefarmer days. Steve was brokering corals to a few out east back when cool SPS were difficult to come by. Mike was getting some of these shipments from Steve, and I was lucky enough to grab this beauty. I believe it was on one of the Solomons disks that Bob Mankin was doing.

I agree that it is one of the nicest green acros out there. It is tried and tested and grows like a weed.

Now we're talking! That microlados is gorgeous. Another acro to add to my list. Reefsluge, that acro with blue/purple polyps is also stunning. Where did you get it from?
