Funny enough I just changed my avatar to my current fav fuzzy stick pic. :D You can't see from this angle, but the base of the coral is actually very light cream/white...quite unique. It looks very much like ORA Bellina.

Thanks all. Pick which ever pick you think makes sense, they all have some merit to me (in one way or another).

I hope to get some picks of my new system up in the next little while, fired up my calcium reactor up on the weekend, the colour should start showing up more in the next week or so. Even have a new camera!
