New ORA Granulosa!

Well i am happy to say i got my hands on this coral today. The story goes as this... it is a new ORA release which is really a rerelease of an old coral that they use to have available. The hurricane destroyed the thing and now one of the volunteers at ORA has regrown it and right now there is a very limited supply of these. It is being called ORA Phil's Green Granulosa. Here are some pics
Anyone else hear about this yet?

Yeah im thinking A. Suharsonoi also now that i look at it. ORA is calling it a granulosa but when i saw it i didnt think it was really a granulosa either.

mcliffy2, Very nice green was that picture messed with in any post editing programs like photoshop? The colors looks kinda whacky is it really that vibrant? very nice tort ive never seen a tort that green before!
