    Pretty cool. It almost looks like a monti/cyphastrea

    A few more cut cycles in, and this one is finally starting to really acclimate to my tank.

    I've been nursing a second strain of styloC for awhile now, and it's finally starting to look happy. It's not as attractive as the first strain I got, but still an interesting coral.

    Stylos just became popular recently in my area. Sunset (identical color pallet to sunset monti) and JF burning banana are two that have taken off, along with a solid pink one from JF, similar to yours.
