    Hey R2R,

    About a year ago I bought a small frag of blueberry fields acro, it came in a pack. Originally I wanted an Oregon Tort but thr seller said this was the same and offers up the same blue. In his tank it is very deep blue but after a year in my tank it is greenish light blueish. I know acros can change color so I don't really care about that. He usually charges around 60 a frag for it, now around the forum I see a frag also called wwc blueberry fields acro and it has green polyps. Looks very different from the one I got and at my local reef forum sells for around 10 a frag. When I cut a few frags from it I asked for 40 for 2 inches of it yet no one seems to want it. Is this the same thing as the wwc version? And am I charging too much?

    Doesn’t look like Blueberry fields to me. I think 10-15 for unnamed blue green acro seems about right. Oregon Tort has zero green.

    hard to tell from the pic. What's your lighting. I have oregon and don't have super bright lights and sometimes (depending on light cycle) it can look teal. I also have blueberry fields from wwc... green polyps. here's an old tort pic... it's not color balanced but you can see the growth. 20150515_163725_resized.jpg

    It's not the WWC Blueberry Fields. WWC's piece is like a bonsai acro with blue body and green polyps.
    There is another older acro people called Blueberry Fields which yours looks closer to.
    But it is definitely not the same as Oregon Tort. If you care about the names and lineage of your pieces, I would be weary buying stuff from someone who can make such bold claims.
    A LOT of people confuse the Oregon Tort for any bright blue acro/tort. I've even seen vendors claim to be selling Oregon Tort when it isn't which sucks because then people buy it thinking they have a piece of Oregon Tort and it just keeps spreading around carrying the wrong name.

    The Oregon Tort I have is the bluest blue coral I've ever seen.

    Yeah I think it is the older bbf acro. My post may have not been clear, i knew it wasn't oregon tort just wanted to know what it was. Thanks for the response.
