Wait a sec... where has this one been hiding?

Looks nice Jeremy!  Despite their less than exclusive reputation there are a lot of nice looking birds nests out there these days. I'm partial to the ORA bird of paradise (another of Holly's collection🙂).

I like ponape. Anyone have a nice ponape frag for me??

Roy has forests of it usually!  Like real mini forests!  I bet he will bring some to the swap!

I think that's the Bird of Paradise, probably my fav. The polyps are purplier in my tank, but the base is that same rich color. Love it!

That is funny!  Didn't recognize it in that shot - definitely one of the nicest in my book.

What threw me off is how thick the branches are.  Almost like cats paw thick... The colors are spot on, for whatever reason that's the color it turns in this tank...

Yeah, I was thinking stylo too. But my green stylo doesn't have that skin. My Bird of Paradise does have much thicker branches than the Ponape. It's hard to see in the picture, but what do the tips look like? Pointed? Or rounded?

That's an interesting looking specimen.  I attached a pic of what a typical ORA Bird of Paradise looks like.  In my experience, the best colors seem to come out under fairly low light with emerald green body and purple polyps with the colors weakening under strong lighting.  I have never seen them morph to a solid green, but you never know with corals.  Branches also look a little too blunt to me.  Looks a bit like a Stylo, but since the polyps appear to be arranged more or less in rows, it is probably a Birdsnest of some type.

On the topic of favorite Birdsnest, this bi-color colony was pretty cool looking.

Ken's pic is more what I am used to with the ORA bird of paradise (in my admittedly limited exposure). That bicolor colony is pretty cool.

Ya, I think I took a picture of a stylo!  It is way too blunt.  Time to rename the thread :doh:

@KenH great pics, that bicolor is cool!
