    [move][size=24pt]DBTC: X-treme Edition ![/size][/move]


    This is the famous Blue Cespitularia - sometimes incorrectly referred to as Blue Xenia.

    This coral is at mid tank level under 250w 20k Radium, and it really wants more light than that to get a deep blue color. I'll be moving a few pieces higher up.

    This coral grows well if you keep your alk, pH, and lighting high.

    I'll start with 2 frags for now.

    Who do I want to get these frags?

    I'll do something a little different here...

    - you are a BAR member

    - you have started at least one DBTC-X, SX, Super Duper X, XXX, X Overdose, etc.
    - your friends call you the King or Queen of Xeniids behind your back :D
    - you will prop and return two frags to DBTC-X
    - you agree not to sell this coral, but after returning frags to DBTC, you will trade frags of this coral for other super duper cool stuff to start more DBTC-X offerings :D

    These requirements also go for anybody that participates in this chain.

    Let's see what people can do with this potentially fast growing X-treme softie!

    :D :D :D

    Targeted tank parameters:

    Alk 3.6 meq
    Ca 430 ppm
    Mg 1350 ppm
    pH 8.5
    s.g. 1.026
    temp 78

    Ooo, me please. I was going to ask you about this one anyway!

    Ok, lets get these to Wayland and Rich.

    I don't think I recall ever hearing you guys ask why your xenia keeps melting :D

    So really... prop some for DBTC and start trading it to bring more cool stuff into the program :D

    At some point I want to see Radiolunatic farming this one. I know he gets around :D

    Out of curiosity, does Cesptularia also "pulse" like most xenia?
  7. Mr. Ugly

    Mr. Ugly Past President

    Might pulse slowly, but the polyps are small and there's too much water movement in the tank to tell. Guess I should pay more attention :D Definately not fast like silvertip or pompom.

    One frag went to Rich at yesterday's mini frag frenzy :D

    OK, then i guess the one I offered Rich isn't needed?

    Don't let that anywhere hear my tank. I can't keep Xenia (and most likely Cesptularia) in my tank for the life of me though I don't care as much now as I did when I first started.
