I just found your updated tank thread - be sure you post them there, too! ^_^ Looks like a couple of people are wondering how you're doing over there!

Do you know what these are? I'm loving the fancy (okay, goofy!) names these beauties end up with. . . :)

No idea lol. I got them dirt cheap at the lfs. They just have them labeled as "assorted zoanthids". Maybe someone will know

Crayolas?! LOL! 64-pack FOR THE WIN!
Since they're named after crayons, I have to ask how true to life the colors are in this shot?
I love the shape of these. . . and the texture.

I never edit or modify my pictures so they look like that in person,all these corals do, some look even better. The thing is though that in salt water reef tanks the lighting kelvins is much bluer than any fresh water tank so that may throw you off.If I turn off the white lighting these corals literaly GLOW! They emit there own light similar the way a black light does once they are under actinic lighting.Answer to your question is these can look unreal in person,Yes they look that good. On another note if you leave the flash on or see these corals on true sunlight many of them are not as appealing. It really depends on the coral but generally they are under 10,000 Kelvin to 20,000 so these pictures are al acrrurate.

NUCLEAR WINTERS! I love these ones as they have a different look as well as polyp structure.Slow growers for me but seem pretty hardy.
