    HI,

    I bought this beatuful piece, but I'm not sure of the exact name for it. I think it is GSP, it has a nice neon green glow at night.

    Could someone give me the exact species so I can read up on it?

    Thanks

    Thanks @Lord_Blackadder did a quick search and yes it looks like GSP Pachyclavularia violacea.

    Thank you for the help.

    They're awesome, but just try to keep them limited to "islands" of rock. Once they spread onto your base rock they can overrun other corals quite easily.

    So I've read, Thanks. I've placed them some distance from the base rock so it should be fine.

    Thanks for the tip.

    Yip very nice. I have the same one. I actually made a mistake of placing mine next to where my superman zoas are growing. Will have to split the rock soon
