    Looking for some people that would be interested in some coral grafting experiments.

    I am looking for some donations to the experiment.

    Rewards for donations: a piece of the end grafted coral you donated towards, photo's of the grafting steps, and weekly updates on the coral's heath

    Planned Attempted grafts:

    Watermelon chalice/alien eye chalice (I need a donor for 5 ish eyes of alien eye chalice)

    Colored polyp Monti swirl(Flower pedal monti, starburst monti, christmas monti) I will trade other coral for these and you will get a piece of the morph.

    Starburst Monti: Gabe
    Christmas Monti:
    Flower Petal Monti: Seth
    Green w/ sky blue monti: subpotentjoe


    Solid monti swirl (Green and purple/orange) possible donations for this are purple(not idaho grape) and orange

    Bubble Hurricane(Bubble gum monster and Miami Hurricane chalices) I need a donor for the Miami Hurricane Chalice

    Goni Graft (Red + what ever people would donate) Possible donations for this are Green, blue, white, or purple goniopora

    Swirl Slimmer (Green and blue slimmer) Looking for blue slimmer

    2 face pallys (purple deaths and nuclear greens) need nuclear greens

    Purple Deaths: Seth
    Nuclear Greens: asn-naso


    Tornado Tort (Cali tort and a red/pink/orange tort) any red, pink, or orange Acropora Tortuosa.


    more ideas to come if any of these become successful.

    Probability 5 eyes. The plan for chalices is 4 eyes for grafting attempts and 1 for growing out till the experiment is successful. I am still trying to figure out what to compensate with if the experiment fails after a year.
