    Health and looks have nothing to do with it. It's the fact that they are known to have a dismal survival rate in aquariums. I wouldn't buy a carnation coral or a flowerpot coral either for the same reason. Look great when you buy them then slowly wither and die. It's like throwing $30 in the garbage. :)

    nice, I'm surprised how high above the lights are mounted...

    so, if you order them in bulk; does that mean we could purchase from you?

    I must have gotten lucky then or a nice healthy specimen as when I originally bought it, it was about 2". I didn't know that the smaller ones tend not to do as well in the home aquarium.

    So, I'm guessing you're a 12 foot tall ogre? It looks like you need a ladder to get your hand in there!

    No actually there is now a platform/walkway in between. Reason it is so high is that I Used a 275 gallon container as a sump and gravity requires I put the tanks up high.
