Just got a nice piece of echinophyllia, about 4x4 inches. Kind of purple/red on the outer edges, green in the center, light blue eyes. $48 at a LFS.... don't see why people pay so much for tiny frags.

Wish I had a camera.

Nice Jim. That one looks like this freebie I just got. It's flesh was receding, so it got cut in half and hopefully will heal nicely.

No you aren't. I'm pretty positive those types are Oxys.

My first chalice. I've had it for 2 weeks. It's in a 75 gallon, about 8" from the top, might move it down, but I love it so I was going to try and make it a centerpiece. It's about 4"x4". This photo doesn't really bring out the green in it.
