  1. What an insanely gorgeous species! Posted one month ago
    1. Yes! and I am happy now there is a web site where I can contrast many of my past coral pictures to give a more accurate ID. Corals will always be tentative, same as sponges but if I can ID correctly a fraction of them that already makes me happier! :-) Posted one month ago
