Brine will just get sucked up into a filter when they are returned into the tank from the return pump

The only filter I have is a sock on the overflow line from my DT. I would assume my fish would eat all the brine before they would make it to the sock. Hopefully I will be able to supplement my feeding using my refugium. At least thats my plan

Yea I just don't think you can get a breading population. At least I've never heard of anyone doing it.

The Indo elegance are the ones that don't live. The Aussie ones are ok. The way you can make sure if it's an Aussie is that it's been fragged. Collectors will never turn in a single large elegance if they can frag it into 4 and get paid for 4 pieces. The Indo ones aren't expensive, so you can purchase large specimens.

I can testify to that! I have ideal conditions in my tank, and believe everything should have been fine, but mine did not last a month. Everything else is doing excellent! I have been reading a lot about a decline in the availability of viable elegance corals that are hardy.

Another specimen that is like burning money when you buy one. Aussies are fine, but how many regular elegance corals have been killed in this hobby would probably shock you.

Wow... Testament to how much more I need to learn. Quite honestly, I loved the look, but assumed I'd never had one due to the price. When I saw the one I got for $60, I didn't think twice (impulse)... Never a good idea. I had no clue there were even differences, other than coloration.

I do appreciate all the knowledge you guys bring to the table on a daily basis.

For my next few corals, I think I'll check in first!

That is certainly the way to save yourself dollars and grief. There are always exceptions to the rule (the guy who has kept a Mandarine in a fishbowl for 10 years) but in general, if they say it won't make it, it doesn't. The LFS has the incentive to sell you what they have in stock (I use to be one) so unless you have a really good relationship with a knowledgable and trustworth seller, you are on your own.
