    This thread will track the growth of my newly acquired RR Jawdropper and RR Pink Cadillac

    Both frags were picked up from Two Guys Corals 10/29/16

    They have a long way to go, but this thread should make it easy to see progression.

    Will try to update pictures on a monthly basis

    JD on Left, PC on right

    Sorry, had a near tank crash. Lost the majority of my acros. The JD is barely holding on. Not worth posting pictures at this time. If they come back, I'll update

    The drawback to these tiny, barely there, frags is that they go very quickly if anything gets out of whack. I long for the day when these practice goes away.

    If the reefbuilders pictures are accurate, the PC is a particularly fine looking acro. The prices are already coming down; in a year or two I might buy one. :)

    They all lose value rapidly really.

    Honestly, where I'm from literally everything is not only available, but oversaturated. It's amazing how much people outside of So Cal pay for some corals -- I genuinely feel bad for you all :(
