    Very strange this is happening after 2 months. My elegance got that way when my phosphates got out of whack. I wouldn't give it more light though. Mine is 24 inches deep under 150 watt halides.

    not a good sign then :( So I bet it looks like it's not only not opening up, but it's shrinking into itself. The polyp may remove itself from the skeleton.

    It sounds like the Indo elegance illness :(
    is what we were told it is via dozens upon dozens of slides of red and green rods[/quote] :lol:

    Not looking any better even after the Giants win.

    Not fuggin' funny guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! |( mine is now showing retracted tentacles and slightly inflated body. I have to ask, when they were cut was the source water used or the ever so convenient in house water?

    I used water from Aquatic Collections to cut the coral--It was from their tank that held their live rock--I dont think that tank is connected to any tanks that hold live corals. My elegance is doing fine (better than ever in fact) so I think it has to do with JAR's tank or specific elegance frag. I also gave a frag to cwolfus so we could check in with him to see if how his elegance is doing.

    I am hoping it recovers.
    Should I try to feed it?

    Sorry to report that this coral did not make it after 7 months.
    It has been stable until the last few days.
    Now gone.
    I need to start dosing mag as my WC's are not keeping up with demand.

    Mine is still doing well. It doesn't seem to like too much light but is very happy on the bottom.

    I'll give you another frag Jon if you want. My piece is pretty big and could probably be fragged pretty soon.

    It is a magnificent coral. I need to get my mag dialed in and then I'll be begging for a slice.

    Bringing this thread back from the dead. It looks like my mother colony died and I just wanted to see if anyone other there still has a frag of this ?

    Wow beautiful elegance coral. I didn't know you could frag them.

    Well as I'm sure you know, elegance corals are not the easiest to keep alive. I hope you find someone with a copy your frag. Good luck!
