Hey everyone, just wanted to share this monti that I found a couple months ago. I got it in pretty rough shape and it seems to have colored up very nicely, it is blue skin with blue polyps, I have never seen anything like this before but I also haven't been on the forums that much either. Either way, let me know what you guys think about it.

Its becoming one of my favorite montis in the tank.

Nice find!

Thank you both, I still cant believe it. A few local guys have asked me for a frag but I dont want to cut it up just yet. Just for a size reference the piece is on a 3" disk. I wish/hope it gets a deeper blue like an Oregon tort, but I feel that just me asking too much lol.

Thank you, the store I bought it from wants a piece back after I showed them what it turned into. He told me he thought it wouldn't turn out to be this nice.

That is one heck of a beauty. I've learned the hard way, although it hurts to frag a beauty like that guy at all, it's nice having back ups by spreading it around. Great catch and great job of coloring it up

You knowing funny you mention that because my gf who is not into the hobby told me to do the same thing today and it makes perfect sense. I guess I'll have to frag a piece for me today and possibly some to sell...

If no one has seen it does that mean I can call it the juggernaut monti?

It may or may not, haven't considered shipping yet because I don't have cool pack or shipping bags/cups that I would still need to buy. I have the boxes though. Still don't know what I would ask for a frag, had a few local guys offer to buy the colony but I don't want to do all that.

I'm trying to keep in mind everyone who's interested in a piece but I know I won't be able to keep up with supplying everyone because at the most I'll only frag half of it.
Sweet monti! Would love to make a find like that.

Pretty piece! When I look at the picture for some reason I think I see a red tint peeking out of the blue a bit?

Here is another picture but under blue LED and a purple and blue + ATI bulb. Photoshop is not my main skill so I apologize for not be able to remove as much blue as other people can but here is my best attempt for now.

Yes there are. I cut a few, just waiting for a little more encrustment before I post them, I'm also still trying to figure out a price.
