DINKY DUNCANS...
« on: December 27, 2007, 03:54:35 PM »
Just wanted to share a photo of the Duncan we got a couple weeks ago from Ed.  (Formal name is Giant Green Polyp Duncan [Duncanopsammia axifuga]). 

Attached photo is a side view, the polyp looks like a shaggy daisy from the front/top.

We came back from being gone 5 days over Christmas to find some new dinky duncan sprouts on the side of the main head.  Looks like there may be one or two on the back side too, but can't see that side very well.   We hand feed frozen food and it eats until its 'belly' (or is it his face?) is all pudgy -- in short, it eats like a piggy just like the rest of our tank inhabitants.   :)

Colleen,
     Those starts were going for anywhere from $40-$90 a head in Seattle.   They are hard to get.    You may want to do some trading with someone.    That is a Aussie Duncan also.   The harder of two to get.  ;)

come over and see..:)

Wow, guess I better think about trading too, just as soon as I get a start back to you.   :P

Maybe we can work out a deal and you could caravan over with us to the West side for the January PSAS meeting, I think it's the 19th.  We're hoping to get a look at Eric's new shop and stop and stop by to see my folks while we're over there as well.
