I agree. I don't think I've ever had a coral just flat out die on me, but my flower pot coral did.

Don't buy them. They shouldn't be collected at all. They like turbid water, the exact opposite of what you are trying to create in your reef. In the old days, they sold because they die slowly.

Have to agree. Mine died fast. Lesson learned.

I have seen guys cultivating these like they were weeds, but they don't like our super clean reef water. I got over them, they have similar looking corals that don't die as easily.
