    (Not for the bandwidth-challenged!) Here are photos of spectacular Blastomussa wellsi corals from members of Reef2Reef.com. I think it's safe to say: B.wellsi rivals any coral species for exotic colors and patterns.

    @Tony

    I also have that one but mine is not doing that well anymore. Not sure what it is. How much light and flow is yours getting? I found that the MH was way too much and got some recession going. Moved it to low flow/ low light area similar to my short tentacle plate and its expanding more now.

    Do you manually feed yours at all? I tried various things but dont seem to get a nice active feeding response.

    Hi Marius, mine used to be under a metal halide but is now under 8 T5's. It doesnt seem to mind the light if acclimatised as they are deeper water corals but they dont like a lot of flow. I've never fed the coral at all but it may trap smaller suspension foods like plancton additives
