    You need to search the forums for Heart of the Ocean, HOTO.

    Don't know if it's been mentioned yet, but I picked up a "Jason Fox Barney" over the weekend that's a truly vibrant blue-violet color, with redder polyps. Photo is of mine, but low-quality photo of a new frag. There are far better pix out there . . .

    I had a nice Hawkins colony that had blues, greens and turquoise. Lost it to Dinos this past Spring.

    It's about time someone posted the blue matrix! I agree with most on here, Oregon tort is one of the most all-through blue corals. I have a coral called Vivds Cold Fusion that is a beautiful baby blue color and has kept it over the past 4 months.

    From the pics that I've seen so far HOTO seems to be the bluest thing out there, but I've never seen it in person. I'll have to admire others who have that piece instead and stick to my oldies. Here's how a couple of the pieces mentioned above look like in my tank. My macro setup picks up a lot of details so the colors are more spread out.

    Tyree blue matrix. Exposed portion not blocked by the piece above it.

    Another oldie that's blue that hasn't been mentioned. Becker tort.
