    Hi guys, I went to the Bloem reefmeeting at Ed's over the weekend. As if it weren't enough for them to share their knowledge they also had to share some of their corals! Thanks to Ed for the green starpolyps and to oom Hennie(Reefmaniac) for the monster Euphelia frag, here is a pic:

    Aww, it was nothing :) :) - keep in mind that it is still a tiny frag, when compared to the mother colony:

    Mekaeel, I've never seen this size on a pic or in person of a coral reef. Will be interesting to know if something this size still exist in the wild

    No problem Sean - Your frag is booked :) and yes, the mother does belong to me.

    It has grown so large that it is starting to break apart under it's own weight. I also had to break off a large piece on the left of this colony as it was seriously threatening my large leather coral. I still have two "frags" of about 150mm - 200mm in diameter just propped between the LR and the tank glass, so if there's anyone else who wants a piece just come and collect :whistling:

    Oh, and I don't sell frags - I give them away for free ;)

    Thanks Hennie, but it would really be nice if you can post some pics with info regarding the other setups you have- whether you keep it for scientific reasons or not- we still interested:thumbup:
