    I've personally never seen any green finger leather.
    I know there's green Toadstool and they are getting fairly rare.

    I think the smaller one is the same as the big one once it opens up. I have the same finger leather too but just that i've never heard of green finger leather before. I'm able to get a frag of green tree leather from a reefer in Toronto.

    The picture isnt' very clear (I'll have to get a real camera one of those days) but the two are very different colours.
    The larger one has green polyps, but the main colour is a 'cream/beige'.
    The smaller one is comletely green.

    Assuming you attempted to post a picture, I don't see it.

    PWALL:

    Glad to see the "green thing" frag that you got from me is still alive and well and appears to be growing. I got the original from Marinescape and they called it a green finger leather at the time. However, looking at various references,in particular Borneman's "Corals" it may be Nephthea tree coral or something similar rather than a Sinularia leather. Whatever it is, I like it and I don't know enough about sclerite differences to identify specifically. If you visit the "ultra rare softies" section of http://www.zomania.com/ they have a picture of something that looks very much the same and they call it Neon Green Palau Leather (perhaps really rare or just advertising or a kissing cousin to what you and I now have).

    BTW. The "yellow thing" frag that you traded me for the "green thing" frag is also doing well here at this end of the city.

    Clown_fish:

    What you see in PWALL's post it grows very well for me so I have to frag often to keep it in its corner in my forty. It grows vertically with fingers and glows bright green under actinic lighting.

    Khoa:

    You are welcome to drop by and see what I have. It's bright green and has general form of a finger leather and I am doing my best to ensure that it isn't rare.

    BTW I fragged it again last week so should have three frags attached to rocks this week. Slightly smaller than what you see in PWALL's post. PM me if interested. Frag size slightly smaller than what you see in PWALL's post. Trades welcomed. $$ tolerated. Marinescape gets most of my $$ in the end anyway :biglaugh2
