@T-Bone Tyrone ....just checked out some photos of these.
I am guessing specimens with this sort of colouring will be either illegal or subject to a remortgage on the house?  :huh:

yea, they'd be pricey! £100 and up I should think, eastern corals will supply fish shop with items like these - but I think these pics have been "played with" to enhance them
You can get colonies from about £60 and up, the lobo polyp shape isn't too disimilar to that of an acan, just smoother looking.
Some lobos branch too, equally as colourful
I should really sort this out!!

Thanks:

That Ocean Gems shop which was closed down because the owner Alex Montgomery was importing illegal corals had a huge collection of these really crazy striking corals, really eye piercing colours.

they're as close to aussie Trachies as you'll get for colour.
