What is the difference between a super nova and Colorado sunburst? Any side by side pics?

Difference is in the striations and markings on the tentacles. Sunburst tend to have longer and thicker lines/striations that are less broken up that can make the color of the tentacle look more solid. Supernovas on the other hand can develop into a more speckled or "dotted" pattern. Also, supernovas can develop a slight green hue to their tips versus a CSB more yellow tip. Occasionally, green speckles will show up through a Supernova tentacle.

I don't have a side by side, but I took these macro photos a while back of a SN and CSB in my tank (this pic is not of this supernova) that you can use for comparison.

Sweet macro shots and awesome explanation. Do supernovas go through color morphs like sunburst?

That's unclear to me. I can only speak to my experience since there isn't as much discussion about CC Supernovas as there are CSBs in the forums/Facebook (especially in respects to color phases). Mine have mostly stayed bright orange or have gone to being red-ish. Similar behavior to my CSBs under my lighting spectrum. My guess is that they could possibly exhibit the same color phase behavior as a CSB.

Highly recommended seller. I bought a few nems and other coral from him. Excellent packing and great communication.

What can they be mixed with? CSB? Infernos?

My CC Supernovas are currently alone, but they used to be housed with my Colorado Sunbursts and CC Infernos in a SPS dominated reef for about a year without any issues. However, your mileage may vary as some have success mixing and others do not. Some suggest it’s chemical warfare through the water column, some say it’s bacteria to blame. Unfortunately, no one really has a proven answer. Because of this, a number of people that collect high end nems suggest that you don’t mix. I understood the potential risk and decided to mix them anyway and didn’t have any issues, but I definitely had Cipro on hand and a separate tank ready if things did go south.
