I used to see a ton of RED acro's for sale on liveaquaria and in the last two years, nothing! Also I have never even seen one in anyones tank either....anyone have one of these, or now where i can buy one!!!

Looks like a ORA frogskin coral but light red with darker red tips.

Sorry for the bad description...but like i said i dont see them anymore so thats the best i can do.

the only ones I can think of are the red planets they were selling....I know there are a couple of species of red acros out there..the two that I have are both tables..copps red a.hyacinthus and the red planet..one that also comes to mind is the one that Hugo(snipersps) has or had..the red unknown acro?

(not my pic nor my colony)

like this one? Supposedly it gets more red rather than pink depending on conditions.
