medium flow, medium light, and feed it meaty foods a couple times a week. is this an indo elegance, or an aussie one? the indo ones don't fare well in closed systems.

Google ASIRA - Elegance Coral.
I'd give you the link but I'm not on my home computer, and that site is blocked on my school computer.

well, you can look at the skeleton and see if it's been fragged. that's one way to tell. if it's been fragged, i would bet it's an aussie. it's my understanding that instead of harvesting a small elegance, they just pull a large one and it still counts for just one creature, then they chop it up. it's all about the cites. it's different in indonesia.

The Aussie ones are so beautiful. One of the ONLY aussie corals I can find. Huge ones too for steal prices.

Never seen an Indo so I'm ridiculously bias.
