Cultivated Reef's e-mail has bounced back to me several times lately saying it was invalid. Can someone PM me a valid e-mail addy for them?

Thanks

I just don't have time this week to snap photos, but here are the mother colonies. It started when I won an ebay auction of the 4th pic below. Its actually up for auction again and trust me - its insanely bright.





This one I only got a single polyp of. There was an ebay auction and I missed it by a few bucks. I would have paid much more. It is WAY intense orange in person



This is the one I got in an auction. A sister is up for auction, as well as a few others. It is impossible to capture the brightness of this one. I got a very good sized frag of it.

Blueberry lord. Huge polyps on this guy. Well over an inch across. The juvenile polyps on the outer edge have red in them, but the adults seem to lose that and be solid blue/purple.

I blame zeppelin 100% for dragging me into Acan's. They are by far my favorite coral. I do need to get some of the crazy pastel colors you guys have though. So nice!

A good share are from zeppelin, a few from PhishyBusiness, a couple from PremiumAquatics. Some of these pictures are quite old, some even the first day I got them. I need to go through and take a 100% acan shot session.

A couple of my favorites.

forgot this one - it's a japanese lord. The color is not quite right though - it is a very strange purple/brown and the white has a little yellow in it. But it is a baby polyp, only inflates to approx nickle size or a little bigger. I just noticed the other day there are 2 new polyps under the canopy!!! I was going to put it in the non indo thread but I couldn't find it. Oh well!!

Salt - Yah the sprinkles have a really light green but almost white coloration. Certain polyps they look white certain ones really light green. Probably depends on the lighting they're getting.

Sorry no more available.

I didn't get these from Mike at TheCaptiveReef, but you can try him.

He's got some of the sweetest acans and micros around.

I just got a super sweet care package from him today. I can't wait to go home and start acclimating them.

9 new morphs!!!!

VERY NICE!!! Now that was just a tease!! You said 9 new morphs and that was just 2 pics. (chanting) WE WANT MORE! WE WANT MORE!!.... Mike really does have some of the nicest stuff around. I bet that 24 nano is just about to bust at the seems!! Very nice man. I would love to see a full tank shot some time. I bet that nano looks incredible with all those acans/micros in it.

Thanks for sharing with everyone!
