Got this piece of Tierra De Fuego and would love to see anyone else’s pieces. 

So show off your TDF!

What camera or phone are you using 

IPhone 7+ with the original Aquariclip for the all blue shots and just the IPhone for the 12k.

Is this a Tyree Tierra De Fuego?

 

I know the Tyree TDF doesn’t get the greens and is all just lovely pinks and reds.

This thing is easily the fastest growing sps in my tank currently, which is nice because it happens to be my favorite so far.

TdF is indestructible.  I put mine through so much, including getting chomped on by a parrotfish, only to have it bounce right back.  Definitely a specimen to be proud of!  I love the top layer of hot pink yours has put on.

Yeah, seems pretty bulletproof. It and a couple other acros in my tank have been doing well recently so I just ordered a couple highends (RR Pink Cadillac and WWC Heart Breaker to name some) to try my hand at. 

 

When I first got my chunk of TDF I tried doing research but couldn’t find much, but one thing that kept coming up was that it was just another Red Planet acro. That you shouldn’t bother buying it and just pick up the cheaper RP.

 

I can say for sure it is not. Mine has hot pink coralites and teal blue growing tips instead of red. The body does get green like RP but it’s more of a lighter blue green.

Try heavy metals... I guarantee you can kill it 😞  Normally though, yeah it seemed to be a trooper and did really well in the tank for a long time.  Definitely will look for another piece.

Well considering how mine is growing and the fact I have a nano I’ll probably do some trimming later in the year and I would be happy to share this piece with the collective. I feel like it’s my duty to kick back some frags considering this was a freebie given to me at my first meetup.

Very kind offer - thanks Salted!  I had been bringing a lot of frags to meetings early last year to give to a lot of new members because the tank (125) was getting overgrown.  Let me tell you, a heavy metal contamination can stop that real quick.  We actually tried to save the Del Fuego colony by taking over to PDXmonkeyboy's place (it was actually his) but it was too late and didn't survive a pretty aggressive dip/treatment (as we didn't know what the problem was at the time).  To be fair, the Del Fuego was one of the last acros to go downhill - which supports the notion of it being generally hardy in tanks.  Very nice coral in my opinion.

About two months of growth and the TDF is still going strong.

Good eye! Yeah it’s a RRU Pink Cadillac frag. It’s been coloring up nicely since I got it about two months ago.

      How do you earn community reputation? I usually can't post items right away because I don't have enough can someone explain how to get more?
    • By Taylorhardy1
      The teal frags are sold, but I could make a few more if anyone is interested. The green stag is still available for $10, and the green and purple tipped tort for $15. Looks like a miyagi tort but a deeper green.

      I have a nice sized red planet frag for sale. It's been growing like craZy, shooting out all over the place. Looking to get $50 for it or trade for other corals/power heads. This thing has been growing and growing since the original post, I'll add some updated pics tomorrow but it's looking really good and getting big!

      New here so I guess I cant post classifieds. I am moving out of state and need to pass on my SPS tank.
      Any ideas for me to post or contacts to be made I am all ears. I have it on Craigs but could sure use some help.

      I am moving and would like to see my sps tank go to the right home. I have it posted on craigslist,
      <Removed link>
      I would love if some generous philanthropist would like to share the cost with me as I could really use some moving money.
      I am open to all ideas. Thank you
