    Rather rare in the local market... Wouldn't mind getting a frag myself!
    Its one of those weird corals that's a mixture of calcifying & soft coral!
    It loves very high light, & strong current if I remember correctly!

    i bought "fiji" live rock from a store and well now i know its actualy a Heliopora skeleton...BUT a piece of mine has come back to life - very small section of it about 2cm, there were small white polyps coming out of it and now that @deadmeat2016 posted on live rock , i know exactly what it is!

    Hmmm, bit difficult to tell from pic. Are you referring to the one in front of the tube anemone?

    Oh, cool! @butcherman... Is there a chance that you would consider fragging 2 pieces for @Gummi Bear & me?
    I can either swop for frags or buy...
