Fluff - I saw Calfo's talk about it too. That's where I got the idea
This is about 6 months after I broke off the frag. It's on a flat piece of lr
rubble about 4" x 4". It spread the base first and all the new verticle growth happened in the last month or so. The tallest growth is about 1" high.
NCPARS fall frag swap is Nov. 1 near Allentown. Calfo is tentatively set as the guest speaker.
ryshark - I don't know the technical, biological aspect of it, but basically the coral can sense it's not right side up. In nature, when a storm hits a reef and corals break off, they fall flat usually, not standing up. They then spread out a base for stability for the new colony to grow on.
