I have stated no opinion. Everything I tell people is directly from my experience, unlike your "professionals".
This reminds me of a few years ago, when I was researching the pectinia coral. Every site back then stated it was an SPS
coral. Even now, live aquaria, which you would probably refer to as a "professional" source, still says it's an SPS
coral. Back then everyone copied and pasted without researching on their own. I would not be surprised if that was simply the case here.
One thing is for certain- all these articles that say you can't use these to sustain corals are wrong.
I'll take some progression shots today.
