Went to a new local store called Aquatic Reflections. One of the best reefer experiences! Robert has tons of imported coral heads and frags that are both colorful and rare. It is amazing to see them all just sitting there. My wallet could only support the following purchase:
  • Cultured A. lovelli - very nice teal
  • Cultured A. abrolhensis - nice piece
  • Cultured A. tortuosa - bright blue
  • Cultured dark blue Acropora, with bright green throughout its base
  • Cultured A. microphthalma - electric dark green polyps
  • Cultured 2.5" T. crocea, ultra turquoise
