    Hi to all,

    A quick question to the Acro guru's out there:

    Any thoughts as to the name of this species ? ( Sorry , not a great pic)
    All I do know is that it is a wild colony and most likely hails from South East Asia.

    It is really hard to identify some of the acro's. If I were to guess it would be either a A.nana or A.granulosa

    Thanks Manic,

    Yeah, it's pretty difficult for me to ID the colony at present since it's still quite small. To me , the corallites look to be closer to that of A.Granulosa than A. Nana to me , but time will tell.

    Looks like an A.Tenuis to me. Granulosa is more rounded.
