    It's AMAZING! It's a red and blue softy! RED! as in brownish tannish reddish, on a BLUE! background, blue as in it's kinda bright baby blue actually.


    You need an aquarium with water in it to accept one of these frags. No exceptions!

    I don't exactly know what this is, it showed up on a Bali fiberglass frag plug and I thought it was cool so I grew it out. It could be brearium, but it is definitely NOT the bluish micro xenia that goes sexual and takes over. It is encrusting, and it will encrust over anything you let it, but it has been well behaved in my tank and is not overly invasive in my experience. I've given one frag away and it died, so it wasn't invasive at all for the other person!

    I have 2 frags available for pickup at the frag trade and 2 smaller frags going into the trade as well.

    I would like to be considered for one of the frags.

    Ok both frags spoken for then. If you need to make arrangements other than the upcoming swap let me know.

    Hey Gusty.....

    I'd like to take another crack at it when you have another frag.....Except this time it will go into the nano. I still don't know what ate the first frag in the main tank.

    BTW - the sympodium is looking really good and spreading. It loves current and bright light.

    I have another small set of frags I was planning to toss into the trade, but dbtc gets first priority. I'll put your name on a piece.

    Gusty do you want me to sit on the frag I from when we cut them or hand it out. I am fine either way, just hanging out in my frag tanks with the others. If you want me to hang on to it, I will log it in.

    Feel free to hang on to anything you took home. Would be cool if you logged it in, it would be nice to see how this looks in a few different tanks.

    So how's this doing for everyone?

    Any chance we could get these frags logged into the system? I'm curious to see what it does color-wise in different tanks.

    Looking good so far......

    It's a fish! It's a submarine! It's A softy that grows like crazy and encrusts large areas but is fairly easily controllable!

    Super, man!

    I have a lot more of this now. Want to cover your overflow? I got ya covered.

    It is an encrusting coral that grows over stuff, but doesn't (so far) send out runners, planulae, or go sexual and spread where it hasn't touched.

    Pick it up in the mission in SF.

    I can also bring some to the next meeting!!

    Thought I'd bump this as I have a lot available. It has proven hardy, but not overly invasive, in my care. If you are looking for a different softy to cover up some real estate get in touch.

    I assume it tolerates/prefers lower light levels? If so I am definitely interested in a piece

    Yep, it does fine in low light. I tossed a bit in my refugium and I came back from alaska to it being totally full of algae. The little piece is looking pretty much the same underneath all the algae.

    I'm in the mission in SF, might try to make the next meeting but no promises. Life has been full this year.

    Tank looked ok when I stopped by. Didn't do the water change because you were due back so soon after. hopefully everything is okay? I tested alk, it was like 7, put in a little buffer.

    Yep everything looks fine, thanks for checking on it.
