Thanks. It's all nice as long as we like 'em. I see that you got a piece from Larry. I am waiting for mine to come soon, hopefully next week

Here's a picture of mine, showing how it's sorta dripping over the edges:



I notice some of your pics showing how your corals are pushing out and starting to plate. Is what mine is doing a function of the water flow? I have a small amount of cross-flow from both directions and it's under where the skimmer dumps out. Any help's appreciated.

Yup, that's the original Orange Sherbert from JCigars! It has great color and grows very well. Here is a shot of it about 6 months ago. I fragged 3 pieces, sold 2 and donated the 3rd frag for a club raffle. A lucky reefer bought one and won a second one in the raffle! I'll let him step forward if he wants to be identified

longra, you may have to place your echino on a flat surface to get it to grow horizontal. I have several that will droop like yours and form a hard dome-shaped skeleton. That makes it difficult to frag and I don't think it looks as nice as the flat growing ones.

I glued the edge of a flat frag onto this vertical rock and you can see that the growth is "dripping" downward where it is unsupported and upward where it is against the rock:

That was a lucky day for me!!!!!

I even won a gift card from Pruess on the same day.

Off topic but anyone who visits Lansing Michigan has got to check out Pruess, what a great store.

BeakerBob, thanks for the info. Now, if I could only figure out how to bring back its bright coloration. Not sure if it's too much light or too little.
