Sold as Walt Disney....

Im skeptical, but the owner said it was nearly dead and now recovered. Assuming thats true, i suppose that could be why im not seeing all the colors, but ive not seen a Disney this hairy before....so im skeptical this is actually a WD acro. Thoughts?

This just went in the tank, and i do have some others with decent colors.... nothing crazy. This looks pretty much as it was a week ago. This doesnt look like your frag AT ALL. The polys are all green, not orange.....im thinking this is something else. Still a nice acro...but no WD....and i wont tell u what i paid.....im a bit sick about it now

WD gets pretty hairy.

They can look different under different trick lighting - RB dioes different than other blends and types of blue. They are just brownish green and very hairy under 14k.

Did the seller have lineage back to Big R?

He said he got it from a large shipment from WWC, which tells me, its not a Disney....i dont see Disney as a a coral they sell. They got plenty o nice stuff, but no Disney

That is a really nice looking Frag. But it doesn’t really look like a wd to me.

Most people can't color it up. I haven't ever been able to pull the colors out that I have "seen" others do. I've moved it around for years with different lighting ect. No Bueno.

Is that in updated pic of your colony shih? I like that piece and have been wondering how yours has been doing.
With all the insane tenuis sitting in Bali right now I don't care to even try to get a frags of any of these named tenuis. I would bet when corals start moving overseas again there will be a bunch of nice stuff to get.

Very nice, thanks for sharing! That's some very nice looking new growth, it actually matches the original wild growth. Looks to be tabling some, I am used to tenuis growing more bushy, I wonder if it will keep growing out rather than up.
