    I actually have a larger colony of that piece about 3 by 2 inches. The more nutrients you have in your water the browner the base becomes and the less nutrients the yellower it is. the polyps are either purple or blue depending on the lighting. My cousins are blue while mine are purple.

    I have a cap like that...I got it from greg hiller at a frag swap...he called it a flower petal cap. Judging from that pic that isn't a cap, but regardless it looks sweet.

    Here's my little frag when I first got it, the polyps are much more purple than this
