    Hi all reefers

    80% of the requests we receive via the forum are for PHOTO'S of the corals we have in stock. Seeing that every reefer love to see photo's of coral's we decided to post photos on this thread + constantly add new photo's.

    Because we carry 400+ CORALD in stock at all times you should prepare yourself for 100's of photo's

    PS. all these photo's are small to ensure faster download time and are of currant stock - meaning it was in stock the moment we uploaded the photo's.

    This is a Acanthastrea sp. that is bigger than my hand, with some close ups for colour ID

    This is close-up with and without flash.

    Photo 3

    This see-through Symphyllia sp? is as big as a womans fist. These photos do not do it justice, as it look more pink than in these photos.

    These photo's was taken under normal room lighting. Under reef lighting it look like the second photo

    But it is a very good / superior product:thumbup: "ask my spawning sun coral":whistling:

    You know me to well :pbut good water quality and lighting are as important to health as food.

    3 are close to big enough to remove - the rest are still to small. But counted 83 still in retail tank. More will be hidden behind corals AND ON THE PIECES THAT WAS IN THE TANK.
