    Hugo, hoping you can help me out my man. I got this from you in a trade over three years ago now, closer to four I think. I t was a dormant mess for at least the first couple years but has since finally come around. No real idea of mature structure yet but the color should be a pretty easy one to place. All the bags had names on them but I have never know what this one was.lol I have just been calling it "snipers blue something or other":biggrin1:


    It's blue and I mean real blue. The kind of blue that doesn't photograph well or at least I have not figured out how to capture it well but what an oddball gem. Any one have this thing or recognize it?


    Here's the best I could do. Close but not quite all there. Just a tough color to real nail.

    Hi Adam here's a little bit of background on th acro. A long time ago when I was a vendor and was selling my corals together with john susbila through exotic frags i remember that john named it Snipersps lapiz lazul and it was famous back in those days but u fortunately it was very sensitive and the majority of people who bought died on them also I remember that steve tyre was going to make it limited edition but the ones that I sent him died but the good thing of this was that I was lucky enough to save a few fragments from my tank crash from 2006 and it grew but then I had another tank crash and what was left I gave to my friend Danny and he had it for a very long time and it survived then he changed the name to blueberry yum yum and I'm lucky because I just set up my 400 gallon and I got my mini colony back so you guys can name it snipersps lapiz lazul or blueberry yum yum

    Adam, would you say it is still a slow grower? I'll be keeping an eye out for when you can make it available. ;)

    Ah yes, I've heard that name before. Thanks for filling me in.
