    That is not a coral. It is a tunicate. @sihaya educated me a while ago.

    We can obtain, but i do not know of successful long term success. Maybe @Jaco Schoeman might have tried one.

    yip they are turnicates, very hard to keep, had mine for 9 months but needs feeding daily and it must be live food etc...

    not worth the trouble unless you have loads of baby brine and rotifers, and a huge filtration system

    Then I will rather not get one. Dont want to risk killing something. Ill rather do some more research and find something just as stunning but easier to keep or something that is known to survive in aquariums.That blue palm is amzing tho.does it look just as stunning as on the photo. Thanks for the advice and the feedback guys.
