    Looks great 2in10! I actually just got a small sympodium frag the other day myself, it's still getting used to the tank. But its looking better every day. How long have you had yours?

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !

    Yup, your right resistance if futile. I was just waiting to see how it did for everyone else. There was a vicious rumor that it grew like xenia, that is the last thing I need.


    Well I guess the theory of it growing and over taking like your average polyp is gone. I am still loving the blue and green coloration to it.

    Its really a beautiful coral. Its so unique, I know I'm not very familiar with all diff color species in aquaria, but I've never seen anything quite like it so far. Especially the blue center, thats what sold me in the end! Sounds like you'll have to place an order pretty soon :)

    Interesting.... I picked a small frag today...

    Wish yours show'd more growth. Are these known to grow that slow?

    I have seen that they grow slow and they grow fast must be the system. I do try to keep my nutrients down so that may be slowing their growth.

    Had to get on the bus well. Bought a 3/4 covered plug on ebay this weekend for $8. It looked to be a good deal since the only other ones I've seen local were 2 2" frags in St. Louis for $100 each and they both sold while I was still in the store.
