    The dude at the LFS wasn't there. Didn't bother asking the good lady there what this is. Just told her to put it in the box. :) It's so kewl, but i need to know what it is, so I can care for it correctly.

    I've got one. It's a nice coral, doesnt mind lower light, likes a bit of flow and I've never fed it. Had it for a few months now

    Its not a good idea to buy livestock before researching it. If you dont know what you buying how will you know if you tank is suitable for it? And you wont know if the specimen you buying is a healthy one.

    But it was lonely and wanted to come home with me. :(

    I knew I'd spend hours and hours researching when I came home.
