Jason fox papa smurf

Hi Reefcentral! I recently picked up a Frag called papa smurf from Jason fox. Do any of you guys have this piece? I am curious about how this Frag will look like once it is in its mini colony stage.
Thanks!

Here’s a picture of the Frag I picked up at rap. It has the same color as Oregon tort but a different structure.

Looks like a blue tenuis or vermiculata. One will table and one will be bushy, so ask Jason which it is and your answer will be there.
Since the coral ban it seems all these vendors have started naming basic corals with basic color patterns. Not saying it's not a nice coral, the blue is sweet. Just saying it would be nice if vendors would call things what they are.

+1. It is hard to tell with just a one inch frag. These days, people really like using made-up names ��

I think not only most venders have made up name, most also have special light systrm and photo editor tools
Nothing against it, just observation

Pink Bali shortcake keeps getting renamed over and over again. I got a $20 frag of this and it looks like some 30 times the cost.
