    Thumbs up New frags

    I picked up a few nice frags from Greg (Big Dog) and thought I'd share them with everyone. I've heard it said before, but really the pictures don't do them justice. The bonsai is especially colorful. Also, ignore the algae on the glass.

    He was kind enough to frag a large piece of a staghorn that I brought with me using his coral saw. Man that thing was sweet. Definitely need to get me one of those.

    For those of you that haven't made it out to see his stuff, I highly recommend it.

    Thanks a bunch Eric! I just picked up some bright blue acro, rose stylophora, and neospongedes that I need to make room for. Just fragged some peach millepora, rose millepora, and a peach and green acro. Folks are coming this afternoon and tomorrow afternoon if anyone is interested!

    Stopped by Greg's pad again to check out the ze new stuff and picked up 6 new frags. Again, you will have to pardon my poor photo skills. I don't have a digital camera, however the camera on the new iPhone is much better than the one on the older model I had.

    This first one is the bonsai that I got on my first trip. You can really see the green polyps on this pic compared to the last one.

    Having trouble ID'ing this one. If anyone can tell from the photo that would be great

    You can't really tell from the photo but the main stalk of this acro is green and it fades into blue coralites with lime green polyps

    I'm still working on learning all of the different names of corals, so you'll have to bear with me on that.

    I also snagged a box of reef crystals for a good price while I was there, so once I do a w/c I will take some pictures of my entire tank to share with everybody.

    Thanks again Eric! You, Greg, and Frank can come trade any day .......... ! The last bunch of Sunday's with you guys have been fun for me. Most of the coral I keep has been through trading. Since my return to reef keeping after a extended hiatus, I've found a passion for propagation thanks to Anthony and Adam's teaching at the meetings. My displays are solid but I most enjoy culturing and watching corals grow. Believe me I don't do it for the money, only for subsidy of cost. I've never let anyone leave without a free coral or two.

    Greg, I feel confident that I can speak for Greg and Frank when I say we really enjoy coming out to your place. Corals aside, you have one hell of a man cave.

    Here are a few more images of frags I got from my last trip. Because I only have the iPhone for taking pictures I couldn't get clear ones of some of the frags. For some of them I had to resort to top-down images b/c of their placement in my tank.

    I was so happy with the first bonsai acro, I got another one and placed it on the same rock as the first:
