    Thought so, just it has been in my tank so long. It was always sulking and small.

    Lately I decided to try stick it in a hole that was vacant and just waiting for it's new tenant to move in. it actually attached to the nice big rock and I swear the thing doubled in size in one day. Must be because it has a nice firm base to grow on.

    Going to try it with my pin cushion, had it long time and has never grown, also going to sent it to the beauty specialist. Nip Tuck:)

    Cheers

    very nice coral, they can get huge. I have seen setups where they have formed the center piece.

    Thanks, I can believe that they get huge, I am seeing it happen in front of my eyes.

    It never looked Good, was a bit of an eye sore, thought I was doing something wrong. Now it looks very nice.
