    I picked up this bubble coral today. I was told I can take it as it isn't doing well in the current system. Put it in my tank and it changed from white to turquoise/blue color. It's slowly inflating... but my question is where should I place it in my tank?
    I have 2 RW8's in my 5ft and not sure how much flow it should be in...

    as above, also I would advise that you try lift it off of the substrate, if at all possible to keep the copopods away, they seem to irritate the bubble's more than most other corals, from experience they climb in between the flesh and the hard bits/calcium skeleton.

    It's doing a lot better today. Has more volume than yesterday. Has taken mysis very easy.

    Thanks for the help, it's working well. Realised it's a Physogyra sp. Greenish. My system must be a good home. It's no longer so shy.
