    SPS ID Please

    Hi there I bought this coral a couple months ago and it came in as a miami orchid. When I first got this piece the color was more brown but it is starting to turn a deeper purple color. It was sold as a miami orchid acro but after looking online at other miami orchids mine looks completely different and I would just like to know what I have. Any help would be appreciated and I apologize that the pictures are not the best, I dont have the greatest camera. Thanks

    its hard to say cause it hasnt really grown any full branches to show its growth pattern, but it looks a lot like a bonsai maybe a valida...

    I stopped by Ashton to pickup some eagle eye zoos and that was what I thought it was. I assumed it was a bonsai or some tri-color. Ashton, thanks again for the zoos.

    Hello,
    Very hard to tell but I would guess Acropora valida also. Here is a picture of my colony.

    Cheers,

    Could be, but I/m not as sure. Many of the branches end rounded and most Valida has pointed ends to a single coralite. Also Valida browns out, never seen one pink out but you never know. Bonsai? Looks possible.

    Thanks for the help guys. Once it grows out a bit more I will work on getting some better pictures and see if we can get a definite id. Hopefully someday my colony will look like the one in your tank kevin. And your welcome for the zoos Peter.
