    RR USA should be the same as RR Asia/Canada since the USA colony was purchased directly from Jay here in Mississauga. I've found that it doesn't have quite the same amount of orange coloration. The SC OP seems to show more blue/orange and less green.

    I agree. The USA and Asia look the same. The SC is a different coral. The SC is the better one, IMO for the same reasons as above.

    I have rr Asia, CA, and also ultimate OP USA. They are all different Corals. CA or sexy OP are the same species of sps and most likely is the exact type. They all have orange polyps and can morph a little depends on lighting and water chemistry.

    They are small frags so aren’t good examples. Do a google search on them and you’ll find plenty of good pics.

    SC Orange Passion- This is under Blue+ & Coral+ T5 which give about a 14k look. So there isn't any overly blue lighting accentuating the orange,yellow, green.
    The SC version has the nicest orange polyps from what I've seen in the other morphs.
