    Like it says, I would prefer one with a deep rich color. Prefer a red/purple foot, and disc. Would like to offset cost buy trading coral for a clone but am willing to throw in money also. I'd prefer a small one but large is acceptable too. Thanks much ladies and gents!

    There's something to be said for a man that knows exactly what he wants... :)

    No, not at all...it's just a nice change to see someone posting a WTB thread with something so specific. Usually it's something like "WTB - Good Lighting" or "WTB - Skimmer" without the specifics that are needed to determine if what you have is what the buyer is looking for. There's no question about what you are looking for....very specific. Nice!

    Also, there were a number for sale at Fall Fest last year. Obviously some better than others... You know who has some awesome RBTAs is Caleb. He showed them off on our last CR tank tour..very nice.

    I don't think so.  You can try PM'ing him if you want.  His handle is "calebjk".  Now, at the time, he didn't have any and he was going to set up a new propagation tank so that they would split and he could sell them, but I don't know if he ever did that.  And for the record, I asked him to let me know if he was ever ready to sell any and I've not heard anything, so he probably doesn't have any available, but he has the nicest ones that I've seen.

    I think, pretty sure, this is Caleb's RBTA.

    I purchased one a few weeks ago from a member ( I wont say any names ) but it turned out to be just a rose  not a bubble tip like they advertised! so now I need to find a home for it and still need to get a RBTA.

    Also from what I have have seen wheather they get that bubble look to them depends on their environment.  Mine when purchased had these big full tenticles like 3/4 inch think, in my tank they are very thin and spagetti like.  Still looks pretty, but I know for a fact it was a bubble tip because when I purchased it I could see it.

    The bubble tips more often than not do not come out. Some ppl's systems for some reason cause them to always be bubbly, and when transfered they do not. Sometimes they stop/start bubbling without known cause within the same system. Mine, that is gone, bubbled for a while when i got it. Then went away. Then split and were all bubbles again for a while. Technically theyre all bubble tips, just notalways bubbly. Theres no gaurantee that if you buy one from someone that is bubbled up it will stay that way when entering into your system. just FYI.


    there are many reasons ppl think have to do with the bubbling ranging from too much/too little light, hunger, flow, etc...

    Agreed.  When I bought the one I had, it had bubbles but lost them as it matured.  It's the " name" but not really an accurate  description.

    I guess that would be the case here, I will keep an eye on it and see what transpires in the next few months.
    CyberJester good to see you back on.

    Hey Brad.

    That has some nice color to it. Alot of people like the white steaks in them.

    That is the way alot of mine look.

    Do you feed yours small meaty pieces?

    Mine sometimes looks exactly like yours, & sometimes it bubbles up. There have been a ton of studies & no one knows for sure why they do that.
