      Agree, Edward, the tips appear too narrow to be a Porities species, but, hell I'm not good at these--it's SPS for sure Bob

        I'm not sure if it is the same as imported from Fiji some time ago. I think this is a sps which is very hard to keep, also, the exception on the rule All of these I've seen (both Indonesian and Fiji) have died within a few months... VERY strange!

        I'm not sure on the species, it might be Porites or Stylophora, but it also might be something else! It sure looks like Montipora digitata but I'm 99% sure it isn't!

          It looks like digitata to me. There have been a number of aquacultured blue digitatas coming in, here in the States, lately.

            It's really hard to tell from that pics because of the pixillation. My first guess was stylophora.

                Alexander,

                How long have you had it? From what I have heard, people here have had a hard time keeping the blue color.

                I am a little confused. People here call you Alexander, is that your given name or your family name?

                      Tom, I only keep it since 3 weeks. It is placed directly under the bulb and until now it has not lost color. The people are right, my given name is Alexander

                      Gary, hmm, that is what my mother also told me

                        Well, that still doesn't prove he's not color-blind Bob

                              Madison, no drastic changes, just a little bit growth. Both pictures are from today.
