I'm wanting to turn my tank more towards leathers but I want some that are unusual colors or species. I prefer to have bigger pieces not tiny frags. Let me know if you have anything!

He doesn't really have anything that's unique and he's in Tremonton but thanks.

I disagree. The foot tall Litophyton that softplan has for sale is uncommon. In my experience though, the "leathers" are pretty mundane. Yet, green Sarcophyton (I believe you once bought a frag from me), green and pink Sinularia are pretty cool and hardy. The last two pics below are my Klyxum, not so hardy, but a very unique coral, also called Colt Coral. 

Many of my favorite coral are soft coral as you can see from the pics below of my tanks. Unfortunately, the "leathers" are quite mundane as far as color. See my next post with some ideas for very unique soft coral/anemones.

Aloha,
Mark  Hug

The amazing and somewhat unique soft coral:

The marvelous colors and shapes of Anemones I never knew existed until I saw these pics:

Like this beautiful Condylactis Anemone from the Pacific! Thanks to Larry Jackson Photography, for expanding my brain. Big smile

Okay Mark I'm not driving to Tremonton for something that I don't think is greatly unique, you have your opinion I have mine. As for other soft corals I have plenty of them and don't need suggestions as this post was looking for leathers.
Anyway if anyone else has any leathers please let me know. I don't plan to travel past Sandy area or slightly further.

Thanks.

Chris I will let you know

I have a green toadstool. Its not super bright but green. And a boring, but long tentacled, toadstool. They are the ones in that tank I pulled the green you got from me last.

Mark! Stop helping so hard. Smile

I've got a very nice, green devils hand leather I could frag.  But alas, I am north of Sandy.   If we're ever going to be in the same place, I'm happy to bring a frag along.

BTW - I'm pretty stoked to see what you find.  You always have awesome stuff!  Good luck.

LOL So true, Shane. You reminded me, I too have a large green Lobophytum. Since Jackie is looking for large colonies, rather than frags, this might do quite nicely, if she can pay me what I'm asking. Wink I don't have a pic, but it looks a lot like this:

The Blue Ridge Coral (Heliopora coerulea) that Softplan is selling is one of the most unique soft coral you will ever see. It's usually tan with white polyps but the blue skeleton is what makes it really unique. Yes, this soft coral builds a stony skeleton.
Here in this pic from Softplan's thread, the Blue Ridge is on the rock under and to the right of the Anemone :

I need to back track. When I looked at the Lobophytum last night, I realized it wasn't nearly that bright green. It has all those beautiful lobes but it's more of a dark green. I like it a lot and was thinking of asking $90, but not even sure I want to sell. Sorry.
