We’re trying something a little different with this post and pitting two coral vendors against each other in a no holds barred battle to the death. Wait, we took that a little too far. Back it up just a minute. Over the last couple of days, we stumbled across a pair of Rainbow Blastomussa corals from two different vendors, and coincidentally both of them on the Reef2Reef forums. The Coral Kings posted their rainbow Blastomussa wellsi back in April, while World Wide Corals just yesterday shared their own beauty, what appears to be a rainbow B. merletti. Not being able to get either of these corals out of our minds, we figured we’d have a little fun with them.
So, which of these two rainbow blastos do you like more? The more refined blasto from The Coral Kings that has a more strictly defined color pattern or the more raw blasto from World Wide Corals, whose color blends more freely and polyps appear more untamed? Neither of the two corals are for sale, so it really doesn’t matter which one you prefer. Just pick the one that speaks more to your style.
