It's a nice coral, but if it's from Aaron, it does look like his mayagi or cali tort. I've owned his oregon tort as a colony and it lacks any green.

interesting. I figured it was due to lighting. The mother colony doesnít display green. Both frags below.. one shows green while the other one doesnít. Both come from same colony.

Aaron himself really knows his stuff. So if you got it straight from him, I would trust him. But they had a few employees who were a bit "off". Maybe you got it from one of them instead?

I remember the day I purchased the frag really well since it was Black Friday a few years ago. We waited on line to get in the store. Aaron has always been great. What I bought was a small blue frag so perhaps it was a simple mistake on their part. At the time of purchase, they said Oregon Tort. Regardless, Itís still a beautiful coral. Thanks for the education on the differences between California Tort and Oregon Tort.

For frags that big, thatís a great price for a Cali tort.

Which is also an awesome coral.

+1! The frags look almost like mini colonies. Super healthy!
