Thanks - I can see it now you've IDd it, but I had no idea Pectinia came in colours like that! The only ones I've ever seen in person were dark brown and tan, with smoother skin.

That green with yellow - Simply gorgeous!

To Do List:
1. Seek Tyree Space Invaders Pectinia.
2. Buy said item.

That's it really. Now I've seen, I want! I have a perfect spot in the new tank that's currently cycling....seriously though, where should I be looking for this in southern Ontario?

I'm not sure if there are any in Southern Ontario anymore. The original frag was imported into Ontario from the US, but he shut his tank down a few years ago, and I heard that he lost his mother colony before he shut it down. As far as I know, he only made 3 frags, and all 3 of them went here to Saskatoon. One of those died, one is huge and the owner won't frag it, and I have the 3rd one. I have sold 2 frags to BC - one is big enough to frag, but I don't think he's cut or sold any yet, and I sold one frag back to the guy here that lost his. So as far as I know, there are only 5 people that own this coral in Canada right now.

I've heard that people have had issues fragging this Pectinia, and have lost their mother colonies to brown jelly after fragging, but mine has fragged well (so far, touch wood). I do currently have one frag sitting in my tank beside the mother. ;)

Guys and Gals, A couple of things..

1. I would really appreciate it if you guys would stay on topic here, thanks.
2. I'm changing the topic to: How to get a Space Invaders Pectina into Kien's tank.

That is all, carry on.

Congrats - it looks stunning! Er, um, if that's yours I see.....staying on topic here....

I'm heading to my first ever Fragfest next weekend and I have no idea what to expect other than I'm rigging up a temporary frag rack in the current tank - just in case I need it. Also taking the cash I've stashed on an ongoing basis for hobby stuff. Excited over here....and I'm off topic again, sorry! :redface::redface:
