With these things you cannot tell by looking at them - you just have to trust the vendor.This didn't look wild, but it could have been. Most of the corals I've gotten from Simon are still alive in my tank, lol.
Typically a conical base is 100% wild. Anything fragged could still be wild because they come in huge colonies and get chopped up.
Anyhow this is my third. I love them...one of my favs.
1. Gold-tipped, conical base, wild - Dead pretty quick
2, Orange-tipped, fragged, aqua-cultured - Alive and well
3. Blue-tipped, fragged, unk - only the second day, fully extended, fingers crossed
