It’s green though.We have them available.

This was originally acquired form Amazing Reefs and Aquariums, which is a local candy shop that only buys and sells high end or uniwww.ataquariums.com
That’s because polyp extension is flow dependentYea unless I see the mother colony for reference I'm not buying a frag of a (weeping willow). Im looking for long polyps while full grown. Alot of these sellers won't show me the mother colony so I pass
Flow matters, and ive clearly seen it in my tanks. With the toadstool I have, at least, but I said it isn’t a WW.From what I here flow doesn’t matter but I’m no expert. Got any pics? I’d take one with 7-9 in polyps weeping or not.
It’s green though.
OG weeping willow is cream/white with Looooooong tentacles. This looks just like a long tentacled Japanese neon
The ONLY person I know that is sharing it is Remy - bahama lama coral- and that’s just at local St. Louis frag swaps.Right and Jake Adams has said only 3 people have them and they are not selling.
Allot of vendor's are selling Neon green Japanese toadstool as weeping willow.
He does not have the original either.The ONLY person I know that is sharing it is Remy - bahama lama coral- and that’s just at local St. Louis frag swaps.
all the other vendors claiming otherwise are being disingenuous and it is false marketing, pure and simple
My understanding was that he was one of the three and his frag is slightly different because of growth conditions.He does not have the original either.
Seems close but he doesn't.

thanks for the clarification
Jake would make a fortune fragging that thing, lol

I bought a ‘weeping willow’ 6 months ago from a local seller. Color was right, 7-9” long polyps. Baseball sized piece for 200
when it got here- literally hand delivered to my garage- it was apparent it wasn’t a real weeping willow. Polyp spacing was bigger, polyp length was 4-5”. Slight green tint to the stalks.
I talked it through and got it down to $45. Still a nice piece. But he knew he was pushing the label, since he didn’t think twice about $45 or no deal. If it was OG, he would have gotten $200 right then
in a low flow area of the tank, it extends 2-3”. If I move flow around, it gets to 6-7” extension, but doesn’t ‘weep’.
all this to say, is that there are ‘mimics’ that are so close to the OG in appearance it’s hard to determine by photos, and there are still people putting ‘weeping willow’ name on a long tentacle green Japanese in order to pull in views.
