I ordered a ORA Purple Nana and ORA Joe the Coral from you guys and recieved them today. I'm a bit concerned about the Nana however. It's very similar to my ORA Verde. Can you confirm this is a Nana and that I wasn't sent a Verde by mistake? The only difference that are noticable in the 2 corals when compared is the on I was sent as a Nana has a thinned branching structure and my Verde is kinda chunky. Also with speaking to people here in the SPS forum it seems the concensus is the Nana is indeed a Verde.

Order number is A2674577

We would like to review your photos with the staff at our Aquatic Facility and we will respond as soon as we have further information.

StephenInVa,

Thank you for your patience while we looked into this. The Nana and the Verde corals are very similar. The coral that you received is the ORA™ Purple Nana Acropora. We will be posting pictures of both the Nana and the Verde next to each other later on today.

I know this has been verified twice by the Aquatics Director and I feel like I'm beating a dead horse. But here's a few more photos of the Purple Nana I received today and the "Purple Nana" I received previously in the week. There's no way in the world these are the same corals. Please advise....
