Green Nephthea

Green Nephthea. This colony came from Rich, President of MARS, and has been fragged many times. The nephthea needs moderate to strong flow and small particulate foods (TLF Marine Snow, DT's Phytoplankton) should be blown across their extended polyps. They do have the tendancy to "brown" up under intense lighting, therefore this coral will soon have a new home in the North Lake Tahoe Boys and Girls Club's aquarium.

Purple Bullseye Mushroom

Purple Bullseye Mushroom Coral. This brightly colored mushroom comes from the Tonga Islands. I consider this shroom to be one of the most handsome mushrooms seen in the aquarium trade. Although a bit uncommon, fragging and sharing with fellow reefers is highly recommended.
