Elegance coral

Just wondering who has ever had an elegance. And how did it fair in your tank? I've been told it'll die.. I went to a fish store last Saturday and the guy had 3. One in each display tank. I asked him what he thought and he said they are very easy to keep. I told him I was told there hard to keep and he said there wrong. I really want one. But not if it'll die.. I know they need room. I have that.. What's your thoughts?

I read an article a few months ago (forget where.. Tropical fish keeping mag maybe?) That elegance corals had gotten a bad rep for being hard to keep years ago before many of the products and techniques used in the hobby today were around, which makes them much easier.. I see them around a lot so I doubt they can be that difficult. I want to try one myself soon.

The guy said they feed themselves. U can only target feed if you want. So if that's the case. I don't know why they would be that hard

My LFS has one that takes up a third of a 75 gallon. It is gorgeous. I am thinking if they grew it to that size then they can be kept, as for how easily I have no idea.

From the knowledge I have picked up about these guys is that it depends where they are coming from. If it isn't an Aussie elegance, current life expectancy is low.
