is one of my favorite corals. It was once considered a faily hardy coral but over the last couple of years it has had a poor survivalbility rate. Not sure why, but some blame collection and transport methods. I have had three. the first one died for unknown reasons. The second one looked damaged and lost a battle with brown jelly infectin. The third one has been doing great for over a year (I have a pic in my gallery of this one). I have tried many different placements and found that placing the cone in a sandy substrate is, by far, the best postition. They like low flow and moderte light (3-5watts/gal
of at least CF
lighting). They can "sting" the hobbiest if you are sensetive. Like most LPS
corals, give it plenty of space in relation to other corals. Good luck!
