I love the puffy look of the Blasto. Have had some nice ones over the past year and with the exception of 1.. water chem has taken most of them down.

The one I am looking for may have 2 names.... It is a dark red body with a blak to dark purple radiant center. Like the one I saw earlier. Called Black Cherry or Black Widow.. Now that is something to look at.. I like my reds.. and blues.. but not blue green.. or green.. and some yellow and orange are nice too.. man I cant make up my mind. so.. just not green.. :)

Yours are very similar to mine. I have close to a 12” colony in my 180. Sadly, I did not grow mine...I bought the colony. Are yours really intricate underneath? I have a whole intertwined stem system underneath my colony.

That really is a massive colony, I hope to grow the two types Ive got out quite a bit. I'd really like to find something cool at a frag swap sometime.

I will be better pics of both my colony's for you to see and yes very intricate underneath as I said before these started out as 2 polyps and have grown to 2 huge colony's as other people have stated there are so many versions colors out there now would love to get some other colors would trade a good sized frag of mine... To bad this was not before would have been happy to give you some of what I have.. your blasto is beautiful!

Can somebody ID this for me? Will it play well with other blastos?

My experience is Blastos play well together.., though Not an expert. Looking for pics to get a commercial name. Gimme a few minutes. :)

OOK I am only finding this one under Green Blasto. I found a nice Toxic green but it is not matching tothis pic any.. Sorry I could not be more helpful.. As a single polyp, may not know if it is B. merletti or wellsi till it adds a few heads.

Thank you. The center is so bright, I have to adjust the color on my phone. Imo wellsi.

I think you'll see the prices of Indo Blastos continue to rise indefinitely. The very hot varieties usually grow slow in aquaculture.. I have a pretty legit blasto collection, and ive paid 1000/head for a couple of them.. no joke..
