    Indeed it does. Truth is, I have been calling this one the "Shag Priority" for quite a while now. Lots of people have it even, and that's what I gave it to them as. Problem is, I was just to impatient to let this one sit long enough to really let those polyps dangle before I took the shot. So instead of the visually shaggy wonder that it actually is, and the essence I really wanted to capture, we have a more subdued look that lends its self better to a name like......."Bleeding Moth", sigh...

    So whatever really. Call it what you will. I think it's just a super shaggy Nasuta, and it does look great believe me. If your into long stringy meaty polyps, this is the shaggiest one I have.

    But you'll just have to take my word on that until you get you yourself, or I can be a little more patient with my photography. Or, if you happen to have one, please feel free to chime in.

    “Stringy meaty polyps” might be my favorite collection of words today....

    More Shaggy than “Crazzzy Banana” and “Trash Compactor”?

    Nice and shaggy for sure. I prefer corals that let it hang out for sure. Not all corals will keep their polyps out all the time.

    Much more shaggy! If I'd have let it sit another couple hours, they'd have been all out for sure.

    Starting to think I should have waited to order my latest Battlebox. Yet another nice piece! Guess I'll just have to order another box in a couple months :)

    Well, Adam snuck a frag of this into my Battlebox anyway:) Totally unexpected awesomeness right there and why I choose Battlecorals to satisfy my sps addiction.

    I'll post up a pic once I get home from work.

    Thanks again Adam! Really appreciate all your help.
