Duncans

Well, since starting up my tank in November I have really taken to duncans. Not only because it is one of the few things I have been able to keep alive, but feeding them and watching them grow. I found my camera today and thought I'd take a picture of them to share. Still might be a tad hard to see, but I have two different duncans, my oldest in the back with 3 heads and growing 4 more. The front has two heads.

I think Duncan's should be championed amongst LPS. I've always found them super hardy, really fast growers and I also think they are the easiest coral, bar none in my experience to feed. Always eager for food and no messing about trying to tempt feeder tentacles out like a lobophyllia for instance. I feed mine every other day as I do my fish and they sprout new heads every month. Fascinating to see a single head bud 5 or 6 new heads from its base to say the least!

Great coral.

I feed mine mysis every other day. I use reef crystals so no need to dose calcium. That has produced alot of growth off of my older duncan. Im sure the other will follow a similar path now that it has settled into my tank. Just started feeding it last week.
