    I had them at the bottom on the sand even, so low light/med light should work, they did'nt mind high flow but will be ok in low/med as well.

    Ok, great!
     
  8. Blue Clove Polyps are running a muck all over my tank. I have a maxi jet covered with them which looks pretty cool!
    Once they get going you will have blue rocks!

    Cool...so they are fast growing, huh? Are they as invasive as GSP? I like GSP btw. :) What other corals are they related to?

    they grew fast in my tank. as a matter of fact, i bought a 10 frag from ota a couple years ago. they don't sting zoas, not sure about other corals.

    So they are pretty benign then...That is good, :)
     
  12. Mine have grown so well the past 4 years that they are right along many of my SPS and they do not sting any of them. They just get annoying when you need to make room for other items.

    They're more invasive! Because with GSP that grows outward from it's location, with these blue polyps they'll pop up at random places around the tank, I'm not sure if some of the polyps detatch or if they actually just breed into the water column, but I have them popping up on just about every surface.

    I forgot about those, Its parts of my reddish milli base that came off with the frag. As you can see they did not fight against each other.

    Very cool...Will it do alright in med light, or should I cut it off and put it in with my MH?

    The color right now is almost black/red, will it change color?
