    Swak! Why tune your mom grief when she picked you out such an awesome coral!

    They are primarily photsynthetc but will benefit greatly from feeding. As for most other softies. Artemia/brine shrimp nauplii are the ultimate, but other mushed coral foods are also good.

    Nice parameters ;-)

    PS: This has to be my favourite coral... nice one!

    Very nice coral that,im huge fan of LPS.Doesnt need much feeding,will survive off most the "dirt" floating in the tank,just need light!

    Is their a LFS in Gordan Bay?

    nahh not in gordons bay lol but in strand, pets aquaria, they don't really know what theyre doing but sometimes they get nice shipments of marine stuff, oh and they have amazing base rock.

    about the coral thou, this is my 3rd LPS and i don't think i will be able to stop myself trying to feed the coral because i am obsessed with feeding corals, especially my meat coral, LPS corals are amazing to watch while feeding
