Our awesome Hikari rep brought me a frag of these today to add to my growing collection, he said he picked the colony up at MACNA, but didn't have a name. Just that they're awesome. lol. And indeed they are, couldn't believe how red they are once they started to open up. Got a couple quick shots while they were still at work. Plan on taking some new pics in a couple days, give em a chance to settle in in my tank first.

So far the best match i've found for them is the Valentine's Day Massacre, i'm pretty sure these are it. But gotta wait til my guys are totally open and happy to be totally sure.

Edit: Just found these, which could also be them... http://store.atlantisaquarium.net/frg014.html

This pic TOTALLY doesn't do em justice at all.

It seems like a lot of people have trouble with these melting on them. From what I've seen so far...they are so slow slow growers. It'll be an exciting day when mine decide to finally pop a baby. *fingerscrossed*
