When you are buying invertebrates that will be used for parent colonies always look for the ones with the brightest colors. Soft corals and Mushrooms come in many shades of blue, purple, green, red, and yellow.
This is one of the combination rocks that has several corals that grow very well together.
Shape and texture are the two most important things to look for when you purchase or make base rock. Remember if you start with a lump of rock you will end up with a lump of rock covered with coraline. If you start with a fine looking base rock you will end up with a fine looking live rock.
