I see it. Apparently it was sold though. I'm going to see if my local guy knows anything about this.

I have 2 from live aquaria. Ive had them almost a year now. Very slow growers, but its hard to say as they spiral as they grow. You definatly need to spot feed them, or dose mysis to the tank or they tend to retract and not put out their polyps. Its a hardy coral but may not show its true beauty if you dont feed it daily.

Thanks Slayer on the feeding info.

If any of our sponsors have this available or can get it, please let me know!

OK, my local guy can't get them but he said that they are quite difficult to care for. He recommended getting the aquacultured ones since they would be easier to care for.

I've read a few threads about them on Reefcentral. Most people do not have issues keeping them alive and growing, though they do require spot feeding.

I wonder if setting up a system for feeding like I have heard being done with Sun Corals would work with these guys. Sort of an inverted cup with a tube for delivering to food. The cup keeps the food suspended around he coral instead of being pulled into the water column.

This is how Jeff ( AU01ST ) did his spot feed.

Once the whole cup has been poured, the top and most of the polyps on the sides have closed up, they have food. By lifting the pipe 1/2" up and down quickly, water flows in at the bottom of the plastic and kicks up all the food on the ground. The polyps around the bottom of the colony grab their bits of food. Leave the cup on for an hour and voila! Pretty easy IMO.

One thought, I may need to drill a few small holes in the 2L to keep water flowing through there, figure a 2 dozen very small holes will be alright?
