Send me a frag so I can get a good look at it.







;)

Sure thing. :D

This is a picture with a bit more focus in it. Could it be danae?

Yeah its a crazy color - pink polyps with light blue mantle. I'll look into the mollis, peltiformis. Thanks.

M. peltiformis is out do to its description of plating. M. mollis is looking very promising. In fact reeffarmers.com actually described something similar a few years back. So thanks!

I have an M. peltiformis and they only seem to come in one color combo IME - tanish yellow with blue polyps. I'm no expert like Jamie, but it just looks completely different. (Yours is much nicer! Lol.)

I see it in that pretty much all the time also. However, as to weather or not it is because it actally is a peltiformis or online stores jsut label them as that because it is a common color combination (kinda like any monti with superman coloration becomes a danae), I do not know.
