SPS ID Wanted - Any idea 05/07/10
Howdy Crew,
I have searched through many websites and have posted on RC (
http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1810767 )
as well as an Australian Reef Board (
http://www.masa.asn.au/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=214603 )
 the following pictures. Yet, no one has been able to suggest with any certainty. The coral with rock stands at 3 - 3.5 inches. Can anyone ID this coral? Thank You <It looks to be the beginning of some type/species of Acroporid... growing over/on another likely stony coral, but of what sort, the corallites aren't distinct, too large for the genus Montipora... at any length, two organisms. Bob Fenner>

Pink Birds nests  my graphics on my computer are not that great I was wondering whether the birds nest is a soft or hard coral I don't know anything about them >> The genus Seriatiopora... are hard corals, family Pocilloporid... keep studying! Bob Fenner
