Flowerpot questions

Hey guys,

So at my lfs they're selling a softball sized green flowerpot for $35 and I'm interested. My tank is been up for 15 months params are stable. 0s across the board, 450 calcium, 8.2 ph. It's a 55 gallon with other corals that are flourishing and for lightin I have 4x54w t5ho with ATI bulbs and indiv reflectors so I think it would do good but know they're are difficult to keep so before I made a purchase wanted to ask for some advice and tips as if I should get it or not and if I do advice to help it do good?

The thing about flowerpots is that one minor injury will end up killing it. Look it over carefully for any signs of possible injury and make sure you and the lfs are careful with it.

Depends on size. They were 45 bucks at my LFS before they died a week later.
