I got...chalices: blue w/ yellow, mummy's eye, red; orange branching psammacora, John Deere leptastrea,
Tubbs Stella branching monti, seasons greetings monti, and a massive German blue monti digi. I was shocked at the variety of corals I received and were all over the tables.
I also tested salinity of each and found a couple very, very low, which I figured was the donor didn't have enough SW and had to dilute, but who knows. I added spoonfuls of QT water to each container and equalized salinity and temp (some took a long time), then put in holding bucket until Monday AM. Students will inspect, dip, and put in QT. They love that job - cleaning with dropper and toothbrush, looking for (and screaming at) weird things under dissecting scope.
Thank you Bruce Spiegelman and pbh reef for the wonderful compliments. Meeting people like you both makes BARS membership a really good deal. I'm very much looking forward to renewing my yearly supporting membership.
