    Hey there Jaquesb.Are you(or anyone for that matter) able to id that second coral for me yet.I still am not sure what it is.I have taken a small clip,not such good quality but it might show shape and colour a bit clearer.Let me know what you think.I started on the Kenya tree and then over to it.

    Goodisor - sorry man - but the video is a wee bit out of focus..... Would you possibly be able to take a hi resolution close-up still photo for me? I would really appreciate it.
