CORAL That’s Blue -and- YOU CAN SEE IT TOO!

How sweet it is to be seen by you!

 

My youngest decided to get thrifty with his BOMAD spending, despite repeated “requests to do otherwise” (BOMAD = Bank of Mom and Dad) :oyh:

 

Nonetheless, I think this is a VAST improvement visually.  Sorry for the overenthusiasm?  NAH!

Tabulate coral. Possibly favositid, but I think there is a similar one that isn't quite as strict about it's geometry.

Pleurodictyum is the one I was looking for.

I have to disagree with pleurodictyum.  We have picked up hundreds of them in NY and they have a very distinct shape and features.  They are all pretty round and the backs usually lack the coral pattern.  When you are lucky you find one that has a snail impression on the back, which is what they often grew on.  They are usually fairly small in size as well.  Here is a pic of the front and back of one of ours.

That's an excellent example of tabulate coral with a nice color to match. Nice find!
