    I all,
    I have about six of these specimens in my DT, started off with two about six months back when I bought some Zoa rocks.
    They are really pretty.
    My tank parameters are:
    NO3= 4ppm
    PO4= 0.16ppm
    Ca= 485ppm
    Alk= 9.2dkh
    Mg= 1350ppm.
    Ph is at 8.2 in the morning.
    Thanks for your time[​IMG][​IMG]

    Eish, thanks guys. It's true what they say, only the pretty ones are bad hey? :tt2:
    What makes them a pest, replication, venomous, etc?

    both
    they multiply easily, and sting nearby corals.

    They are just the pretty version of Aiptasia, the nicer looking one of the evil twins.

    Why would you want to sump them? They will end up back in the display. This is a pest like Aiptasia.
