Pictorial Showcase: The Chalice Corals of Craig Bagby

By Shane Graber - Posted May 24, 2011 08:00 AM
(Not for the bandwidth-challenged!) Here are gorgeous photos of stunning Chalice corals from our upcoming Feature Aquarium of Craig Bagby (publishing this Wednesday).
Pictorial Showcase: The Chalice Corals of Craig Bagby

An amazing blue and pink-eyed chalice ... one of many chalices in Craig's collection.

Tomorrow, Advanced Aquarist will publish Craig Bagby's 335 gallon reef system as our monthly Feature Aquarium.  This system includes a 247 gallon SPS dominated display and a 50 gallon chalice frag tank.  As a teaser, enjoy these photos of choice pieces from Craig's chalice frag tank.  It's not hard to see why the Chalice trend took off the way it did: they give all other corals (including Blastomussa) a run for their money when it comes to surreal pigmentation.
