    Are they "invasive"?

    Had GSP ones, promise myself never again.

    I haven't found them to be invasive...they don't seem tO grow in a mat like gsp but rather individuals attached to the colony by almost a root off shoot. They don't seem to bother any corals they are placed next to either from what I have seen.

    @belindamotion I can send you the 2 that are left if you want them, but not sure it would be worth the shipping.
