Someone thought that my favia was a chalice when I told them it was a favia they seemed disappointed cause it's nice not that it's for sale anyways but it's more of popularity contest a lot of of people get crappy corals for their value and not the look if the value of my favia was let's say $200 he would have harrassed me to sell it to him but it's a 60 dollar frag I got

The Applejacks definitely looks like any other $200+, it's such a killer piece that not many folks have. Those feeder tentacles are proof that it's doing well in your system!

Hi there, I'm new to r2r. Does anyone have an ID on this Favia? Bought it many years ago in a coral store in Germany. Got a huge bubble in the last months. Regards Alex

Looks like baby's breath favia
Thanks, that's really close to mine. The Baby's Breath has green in the center an less red color. Mine is only gold in the center. What about Raptors Gold? I think the color corresponds roughly to mine but it seem like the Raptors Gold has a more defined change from red to turquoise. Found only this pictur on Cornbredcorals to compare.
