Elegance coral show off thread

We have show off threads for everything but Elegance corals. With more and more of us being successful with these corals now, I think it's time Elegance corals had a thread of their own.
So, lets see what you got...

Well it all depends if you can get a healthy one to begin with. If you can get an Aussie, then t5's are great or MH if accliamatized properly, moderate flow- will tolerate strongish flows, but better to be moderate and feed a little krill etc once a week.

If you can't get an Aussie or are unsure, make sure your read the Elegance coral theory thread. This will be a must. Indo elegance corals have different requirements and can have problems so make sure you read the above thread.

HTH

Cheers

Chris

You should have gotten one of the Aussie elegance frags that places like Live Aquaria are selling instead.

Both Jamie and myself have one and they are doing great.

I bought two of the Timore ones last years and they both went in the garbage.

I wish there was a way we could tell everyone not to buy an Elegance unless it came from Australia.

Kurt is also getting a shipment of Aussie stuff in at the end of the month. He says there should be three Elegance in the order. But I think he said the cost him $200.

LA sells them for $159
Pink tip and purple tip, just watch when they update the divers den because they sell fast.

Sorry for running your thread off topic elegance coral. I just didn't want to see a friend or any other reefer waste their money on a crap shoot.
