Pineapple tree coral

Has anyone ordered or have a pineapple tree coral? I have one but the coral is so tiny that it won't stay on the rock it was brought in with I've tried to re-glue it. But when I came home from it was not where I placed it I'm sure it is lost womp womp!!!

What exactly is a pineapple tree coral? A leather? If so, you need to rubber band it to something. It will attach itself in a couple days. They slime up too much for glue.

I've got a large one on my tank. Luckily it came with a small rock on its base that I epoxied to a bigger rock to hold it in place.

Its a leather, same family as the Kenya tree... Capnella sp.

For me it has grown, but isn't a nuisance, though not that great to look at either.

I was under the impression that Kenya's and pineapples were different...

Here is mine when I first got it - it's tripled in size now and has three thick stalks.

In that picture, I was using an AquaticLife 4-bulb T5 with (2) aquablue specials (whites) and (2) blue plus (blues)

Now I have LEDs

Nice tank and anemone is that a sebae? I have the standard light fixture but I'm thinking about upgrading to something better. So your fixture holds 4 bulbs altogether correct?
