    Jeremy,
    I fragged this over the weekend and the 1'' frag broke off with no eye.
    I was trying to crack it a certain way (super rock hard skeleton) and it broke without an eye.
    It has been a couple of days and both frags seem normal. Does it need an eye to survive?
    I will keep an eye on it. :D

    Uhm, what is that thing? Common name?

    I think it's too new to have a common name other than Lithophyllion, there a few different ones if you do a google search. If it acts like a fungia, I think it should develop a mouth after awhile.

    1 more frag available. smaller than the one for Jeremy.
    Basically some chips that broke off when I was fragging so I glued them to a plug and they became one again, this thing is hearty.
    Pick a number 0-11
    BTW the first one I fragged formed a eye/mouth in around two weeks.

    I have it on the bottom of my tank. Medium light and flow.
    Seems to be doing just fine.

    I can do my best to grow it out

    I think care is similar to fungia (plate coral), I am not sure if they go on the sand or on rocks.

    Mine is doing extremely well and growing nicely. The color is really beginning to shine, I'll try and snap a picture soon.

    Will this sit flat on the bottom with no sand? If yes then I have a home.
