Very nice Favia. LOL, I almost thought it was a Favites or a Goniastrea for a second, until I saw the faint seperations of the coralites. Really one of the more attractive green ones that we have seen in this thread.
Do you have any others?

Sincerely,
Matthew

I have been trying to get a shot without flash but my camera is not letting me do it for some reason.
Where did you place yours? Mine bleached a little from when it was under direct mh light and it seems like being shaded a bit.

I just came across this thread, some amazing favias out there.
Here's one I've had for a bit. It gets blue on the shaded parts.

rxx2,

That one you have is a very good one, well worthy of its place here.
I saw a really different one on a post about Acan's, I hope the guy post it here. It really is a unique Favid!

ct_vol,

That just maybe the prettiest purple one yet. I know those aren't rare colors, but its contrast & the depth of the color are superb!
