This pic sucks I know. But if anyone can even get me close I’d appreciate it. Another 5$ frag I picked up. It’s the super orange small head in the middle. It’s not fire and ice it’s center is almost completely a radioactive orange with a dark blue skirt.

I have Bam bams. These are different. Hard to explain. I’ll get a better pic when they fully open. Bam bams in the pic below. Where the bam bams are a dark orange in the center these are like safety shirt orange. I still haven’t got a good look at the skirts yet.

This one?

Yep. The skirt kinda looks purple to me. But it won’t open all the way yet. There is a lot of black speckling inside the orange bell and it has those kinda black lines that LSOH (only zoa I can think of that had what I’m talking about even though it looks nothing like this) has inside the bell colors.

That could definitely be the case! You did a darn good job cleaning up that frag
H2O2. Learned it from this forum. It melts gha. I did a three minute dip in 50/50 then used a toothbrush and some crappy tweezers to pull all the dead algea off. It was strange though because it turned the algea clear after the dip. Like it obviously died but it lost all color and became kinda thin and brittle before it fell off.

Almost looks like a Vivid Rainbow Paly, just my guess, but similar to mine!
That is a good guess. The inside looks the same but I can’t get it to open the skirt up fully. It’s so bleached it almost looks clear outside of that orange area.

Edit: I have vamps in drag which are kinda “clear”. These are “clear” like they lack any kinda color at all outside the orange. Closed up they almost look translucent.
