The Reefapalooza show had a lot to offer this past weekend and like many of the larger reef events, some of the industry’s best livestock slingers came and delivered some extremely nice livestock that won’t easily be forgotten. In first place is the rainbow Lobophyllia from Cherry Corals. This amazing specimen was truly a cut above and we can just imagine how beautiful this specimen looks under optimized lighting. The black striped Scolymia australis from Lighthouse Aquatics was another stunner that drew a lot of attention. The deep black markings were numerous and well complimented by the brilliant red base coloration of the coral. Finally, the blue striped Tridacna derasa clam from Reefkoi is another rare reef specimen that is also few and far between. Blue derasa clams are the rarest color form of Tridacna derasa and Reefkoi quickly sold this singular specimen for $500.
