Thanks Mike. How long have you had yours and at what cost? Got any pics to share? Any other places I can get some aussie or aquacultured elegance?

There's a nice looking one in diver's den right now. Pink tip. I'm tempted to grab it myself! Slightly less than the price you mention. Looks nice.

You can also spend $999 on an acan lord too, while you're there!

It's all good I'm tired of seeing all these Elegance corals collected just to die in someones tank. I wish they would stop importing these corals from Indonesia all together. I have a system set up just for these Indonesian Elegance corals and it still takes me 2 or 3 years to get one healthy. I can buy an Aussie and it will be healthy from day one. Why would anyone buy an Indonesian Elegance?

Here's a few more pics of mine.

My wife's tank. Don't look at the cyno . She thinks the fish will starve if there isn't food floating around in the tank for 30 minutes a day.

This is an Indo.

Why would anyone want to buy an Indo when they can get an Aussie?

Here's my Aussie. It looks funny because I just fed it which is why it is surrounded by a pack of blue legs and there is no movement in the tank. My camera is awful so it is the best way to get a picture ... or I am an awful photographer ...

My Aussies. Bought as frags from www.thecaptivereef.com (now an RC sponsor)





This one is in the back, tried shading one and blasting the other. Both work, they seem to love light.

It looks good and healthy. It would open up much more if you could turn the flow down a bit in its area, though. They really don't need much in the way of flow. If you are able, try it for a few days and post another pic. It would be neat to see a before and after pic.

Here is an elegance I had about 5 years ago. It was the size of a football. I got it with alot of other coral when I bought a local reefers tank form him. I lost this beautiful coral when I was on vacation. The pictures do not do it justice.

I turned mine about 90 degress to the left to move it to a more appropriate position. I've known about the little growth of the side, and I'm after some opinions.

Will this piece detach naturally, or will it have to be fragged?



The photo was taken after the lights went out, and the shell was not broken off the edge of the main piece. I've had this coral for over 6 months, and it has grown in that time.

thanks

will probably need to be fragged, or maybe just elevated on that side so that gravity can encourage it to pull of on its own.
