My blastos are great growers. They don't care if they get a LOT of light or just a little bit. They grow great and mine don't seem to care what kind of flow they get either. They keep ending up in a lot of flow but do well regardless (I just moved them out from in front of the Tunze where it was doing great in an effort to reaquascape a bit). Mine is a bright red with nice bright green centers. Our club has a frag
of a darker red with teal centers. I've fragged it 3 times for monthly raffles and still have a nice piece. It doubles in size ever month, so it seems. It started out as about 7 polyps about 4 months ago and is now (after fragging) probably 30 polyps.
I enjoy feeding the blastos in my main while I'm feeding my suns. They eat from the same pot whether it is the chopped krill or the mysis shrimp. Doesn't seem to be necessary because I don't feed the other colony at all.
Good luck with them. They should be easy to keep.
