Thanks. I had already read that. liveaquaria is sometimes not in touch with the "real world" on there descriptions. I have seen them go both ways on different items. I guess no one has one?

Ya, I figured you did a little bit of homework on the matter. How about you be the guinea pig and tell us how it does haha.

Well I am the guinea pig. It will be here tomorrow. I have a nice place for it in 12" of water under a 250w 14k MH. Any suggestions?

I have seen them in the LFS and always wanted one. The only coral I have seen with a hot pink color. I don't think it would be difficult. It will want more flow than the softies for sure.

I don't have a Stylophora but have a Pocillopora which have very similar requirements. Mine is on the upper part of the tank just over the MH and with a lot of flow, it seems that is realy likes it. I do like to target feed it with a liquid food that Coralife sells as Invert Target Food. I have not heard a lot about this particular food, but has worked really well on this particular coral.
High light and high flow will have this one happy!!
