I can only warn, but xenia, gsp and kenya trees multiply like the plague. I am not going to add anymore to my tanks. The kenyas can drop arms and then multiply so all you have is kenya tree everywhere. same with xenia, you'll have it everywhere. I just bought alot of corals and I even had them remove the sprouting xenia on the bases so I wouldnt have any.

Unless of course you want alot of those things then by all means go for it.

IF you can trade them. my local lfs won't take any frags for trade or credit. Plus then you have to constantly be trimming and fragging.

Too much effort for me, plus I like a nice neat tank. I don't like the stragglers growing all over the place. But that's just me being anal retentive maybe. LOL

Thanks Ibrahim for the research and info. I'll check into different sites when I'm ready to add more.

I'm not sure of exactly what I want yet. I posted on photobucket different things I saw and liked. Haven't researched enough to know if I actually want them. Earlier post shows a list too, however I have to research those yet also to see if I really want them.

I'm not into fragging and trading and selling so I don't want to be overrun with anything. Thanks for all your help though, gave me more options and stuff.

gsp?

I want to contain them, I don't want anything that "multiplies" and takes over either.

I want nice, colorful tank with alot of corals. I don't want "2" of any corals. So these, I got cause I know I wanted them, they were available. I know some of my orders will only be one coral because of the cost. Seems like alot of the ones I want are over 100.00 pretty much every where. So I gotta try to get no shipping to cause then I may as well just go up north and spend 150.00 on one, if the shipping on a 100.00 is gonna cost me 50.00.

Anyway, I'll post soon what my next choices are going to be. I'm thinking of going up north this coming weekend anyway....if I have enough money after bills.

Who needs groceries anyway? I don't even grocery shop much anymore. I can't even say I go once a month, cause I don't.

@Carey....You don't mind I adopted you as my SW Mommie do you? lamo
