    Is it ok to put my colt coral in the sand? It is attached to a very thin piece of rock and I have it in my sand substrurate. I have had it for about a week now and It seems to be doing very well so far!
    I read a small artical saying that colt coral's don't like to be placed in the sand Is this true? :-/...................... John

    Thank you pdlmsn I have been looking at a lot of pictures of different reef setups and more times than not if there is a colt coral it is in the sand, I just had to get the opinion of everyone here on 3reef as I think that these guys are the best!!! If you have a question all you have to do is check previous posts and if you can't find an answer to your question just ask and these guys are on it in a heart beat ;) :D ;D...............................

    The fact it has a solid rock base should be cool.

    Thank You Matt  ;) I do have it off to the left hand side of my tank and it is in the sand bed in a medium flow area, It seems to be doing fine but I was concerned after I read that Colts don't like to be in the sand......................  John
