    Default Favorite "Old school" polyp-

    We have heard, time and time again, the question-

    "What is/Show me your favorite Rare/Expensive polyp" or lets see your "high end" polyps.

    How about this for an idea? Lets hear/see your favorite old school polyp. You know, the ones that have been labled "common" because they arent expensive as some, or have been named years ago, and can be found cheap (if you can still find them). I know we all have some favorites out there!

    Lets celebrate some of those gems that got dusty, and are considered common these days! I know I prefer some of these over alot of the new "high end" collection peices out there these days!

    One of my personal favorites. The Dragon Eye!!

    Nothing hotter than a phat colony of Wham Wham's or Bam Bam's. Dragons and Tubb's rock too. I can't pick just one.

    Yep, the old school ones are/were definitely nice;

    My #1 most wanted was probably Armegeddons, but I never actually had a polyp. Organism was very nice, as are AoG (my first collecter paly), Bam-Bams, Tubs, and Whammin Watermelon (Recently lost these). Three old schoolers that I really like that you almost never see anymore were Cherry Garcia, Lunar Starfire, and Tongan Sapphire Blue; Here's a recent photo of the Lunar Starfire and Tongan Sapphire Blue, both are very small polyps;

    Hey Jim, if you have WW, I'll swap Bam-Bams for it
