Description:

Up for auction is the highly sought after Space Invader. If you have seen it in person it was very likely the brightest coral in the tank. It's hardy, accepts a large range of lighting and holds its color. It eats readily. Things to watch for are long sweeper tentacles that will sting anything in their path. This one is growing in ~150 PAR T5/LED lighting.

There are 10-12 eyes depending on how you count :) The coral is ~3"x3"x2.5" give or take. It is fat, happy, and growing more everyday. If some wanted to frag it they'd make 3-4 healthy sized frags, hence the starting price.

Thanks guys and gals. I'm kind of surprised no one is bidding on it. It is without a doubt the jewel of my system. I can't really express how neon it is to people. Let's put it this way, when I fragged it and was gluing it to the plugs, some of the pigment/zooxanthellae got on my fingers/counter/plug and it looked like a green highlighter had exploded. I was quite amazed.

The price is due to the size. When I bought my piece it wasn't even 1"x1" and it was $275 I believe. I think that's what you will find is the going price at any online retailers that have the real deal. Mines a deal ;)

Cheers
