    Hmmmm reminds me of that stupid Fishtank...:) When a "replica" can look like the real deal also...why would someone pay $1500...:eek:..Lucky bugger who won it...if he's into "expensive" and "rare"..:p

    Compared to those ugly rare fish, i dont think the price is that bad. Appears you can get frags of it for alot cheaper. Heres another (possibly shopped) pic of it.

    Na probably not rare, Acroporids have large ranges. It looks very similar to our local A. appressa, nasuta, varialis and variabilis..?

    Were those pics under blue lights? If so, wonder what it looks like under the whites.
