    First SPS Frag

    Picked this frag up today down at Marinescape. I'm a little proud becuase it's my first SPS frag.

    It wasn't as pretty under the PC lights they had it under, but when i got it home under my 14K arc's it was a real pleasant suprise.

    It's too young and doesn't really show a natural growth pattern yet- But Tri color is a good guess.

    They were 20$ for small and 29$ for large. I'm not sure which were large though, I was told all of the ones on drywall anchors were 20 bucks.

    The first one I asked for which was shockingly purple was reserved. I have the feeling he had about 30 people ask for the same frag that day :-P.

    Thanks for the tentative ID guys. I'll repost once it puts on some weight

    That's a great looking SPS frag. I'm sure it will grow into a beauty!

    I agree..., Tricolor. The stronger the light, the prettier it will be!! These guys when acclimated to the light, can be practically 1" from the top of the water with 400 w lights.
