I just received this beautiful chalice from a guy on eBay. It was labeled as an "Easter Bunny" chalice. Of course there are all made up names for these things so I didn't expect to find much information on this particular variety ( which I didn't, LOL)
My question is has anyone seen anything like this? It is absolutely gorgeous. I honestly don't have room for it, but didn't realize that it was such a large piece! (3.5" diameter)
There is Coralline present on the disc that it is on. But the only way for me to place it on my stone work would be to remove it.
Any suggestions? :)

I've been watching this thread as if I use my imagination (since photo has a blue light and no orange filter) this coral seems exactly like a coral someone was selling at Reef-A-Palooza Texas. My imagination says those are Easter Egg like colors around the pink dots, but it just seems pink and purple on my monitor looking at above.

If this matches that coral, it was outside my comfortable price range and since occasionally my nitrates spike I didn't want to risk $$$$ only for it to go white. Typically I take a photo when something touches my heart with so much desire... but checking my phone no photo - guess the money was deal breaker in my situation.

Glad for you.

FYI: I always prefer removing corals from frag plug/disk after dipping to cut down on pests, but it already seems IN tank.

Very interesting! It was actually in white light when I took the photo but there was no filter I'll be glad to post one!

There is some "yellowish" coloration present.
