    I'd say NO to GSP. I had it in my 75 and it started to take over and kill my ZOAS. As well as spreading it will jump all over the tank. My 300gal has three spots where it is growing and I keep saying I need to get it out before it gets out of control. I have a piece growing up towards a pack of red musghrooms I need to get rid of pronto.

    Bad news. Yesterday found my chocolate chip starfish on too of maze. Completely covered.
    Will it survive? Doesn't look good.

    I got some yesterday. Neon green. Looks awesome! Seems like almost everything is deadly or has tentacles and will sting. I'm half joking but all the cool looking stuff has some kind of self protection built in
    I'll start a thread and post a picture.

    It's very easy to trim back unlike other softies. Get rid of that CC star, it's carnivorous and now way reef safe.

    Yes, the CC is only good to feed harlequins, and I even see that debated.

    Also, don't get a pencil tip urchin. Someday you might find yourself in a situation where you get some rastas at a really good price and then the next day you see a blank spot where your rastas were and a smiling pencil tip urchin in their place... ooohhh, i was so mad (at myself)

    He is in time out in the sump now. His new home!
    Think the maze will make it? Or a goner? Never really thought about the CC. Been in my tank almost since beginning

    Tough to tell. I've seen frags come back from the dead. A nice iodine bath might help though.congrats on the frags
