You didn't say what type of brain: open or closed?
I have a very large (8" across) open brain. Had him for many years. They don't like bright light or medium/high flows. Mine is near the bottom of the reef, stuck in a cave inside the LR
. My system is BB, so there isn't any sand or CC
to stick him in.
They are very easy to care for and don't have to be target fed. Mine lived on ESV and 83w PC
in a 29gal for the past 3 or 4 years. I just recently started target feeding him. Only due to the fact that the LFS
sells you such huge portions of live food.
I call him my "garbage disposal". Gets all the left-overs and then some. He likes pellets, brine shrimp, and blood worms (fresh or frozen). That is all I have fed him so far.
He is my favorite coral.
