                        My ORA looks like CAReefers tort.

                        Is it me, or do I need to get a Oregon tort??? Because, I am pretty sure that I need one.

                          Hi Marshal, just a nice growth pattern of a beautiful Acropora

                          Hi Adam, the Oregon tort are notrious slow growers[read: long waiting lines for frags]. Jim at Rainbowcorals does sell these frags. Bob

                            ORA tort Wade?

                            Is this your coral, it is not an ORA tort but it is beautiful and much more rare than what you think it is.
