    I know there was one going through the DBTC but I don't know if any are available. I think your best shot is to keep an eye out at the LFS'.

    I was told it was best to get one that has been in captivity for a while

    Get Aussie not indo. I got one from Neptune's a few months ago and it is going strong. You can tell an Aussie usually by a cut edge, as they get larger more mature colonies and frag them.

    Yes, I used a bandsaw. Pretty easy to frag a healthy piece.

    Please detail your procedure and experience if you remember?

    Not much to the procedure. I cut enough skeleton to be about an inch or close to it but most importantly it must have 1 mouth. I have extra tank water in a different bucket. Once I cut it I put it in the original bucket wash it out in there and then put in the new bucket with tank water. Before I put in the tank I glue the cut side onto a rock and then put it in the tank. I put it where it is low light and low flow for a few days.

    Neptunes fragged up a bigger elegance a few weeks ago and have pieces on sale for $90-100.

    They're aussie purple tips.

    Still looking for an elegance? AC has a bunch of Indo and Aussie. I'd stick with Aussie.

    Indos were in $65 bin, smaller Aussies (I believe they were Aussies - double check before buying) were in $45 bin, and they had larger ones in the back "special tank" that doesn't have pricing listed.

    Wow that's cheap for aussies. Or maybe just compared to what I paid. Good luck, beautiful coral!

    Do any of you feed them? Mine hasn't grown much in a year, but I don't feed mine either. Wondering if I should?

    I have some dendros that I need to feed regularly. So once in a while I'll send some mysis into the elegance. I haven't noticed much growth either, but it is very healthy and already pretty big when fully extended.
