    A couple weeks ago I nervously purchased a Wilsoni from extremecorals. I was nervous because of what I'd read concerning their difficulties and the price of this little coral., the most I've ever paid for a little coral. I was concerned early on that the colors weren't there, but it's been feeding on a diet of live food. After keeping it just two weeks, it's now among my favorites. It's colors have changed and intensified and it's just a stunning piece o' coral, the nicest in my new reef. I hope to add another once I can afford it.
    This is from the day I received it.... vs now.

    I have a green one that is doing good so far but I've only had it a few weeks now but it's cool watching it eat and I've got a pretty nice sized one

    Here's a current photo without all the blue light. It's really bright blues, reds, green, orange, and lots in between. I bought it from extremecorals.com. It was $250'ish if memory serves. I love buying from those guys, one of the few sites which sells true LARGE colonies vs smalls and frags.

    with the blues cranked up it's really bright.

    Yeah, pricing is generally based on colors more than size.
