They can get very big on the right tank. I saw one that was almost the size of of a basketball.

That's awesome. Probably my next coral. I saw two of them at the LFS nice in size 109 each. Nice pick up.

Try to purchase Australian ones, not ones from Indonesia. They have a much better chance of staying alive, long term.

They don't eat phytoplankton. They are LPS. Anything with a large mouth eats large food.
