Here's a link for the coral. Seems to like good flow and good lighting.

FreshMarine.com - Flower Pot Coral - Goniopora lobata - Daisy Coral - Flower Pot Coral - Sunflower Coral - Buy Cheap Yoo Stone Coral at Wholesale

Looking at that link though it doesnt quite look like what i got. lol

Can't wait for the pics! I haven't seen a purple feather duster, must be so cool! I've seen the Hawaiian one, pink, red and combinations of the two plus white coco worms but never ever a purple one!

I'll be very curious to see how your flowerpot does. I've read it can be very hard to keep alive. wishing you tons of luck!

I just now have been reading up on this coral. It's a gonipora and yes, according to my book it's a hard one to raise. At least it doesnt require feeding of the polyps like my sun coral does. LOL

Pictures uploading now. The flowerpot isnt that special, but it was only $20. And the duster is HUGE, at least to me. hehe

The duster is really cool! Is it the "tubeless" kind? How did you attach it so nicely?
I like flowerpot corals, I think they look very sweet! I hope yours grows just fine!

Carey, how often do you feed your sun coral? Is it difficult? I want one too but was unsure about the feeding part, don't want it to starve you know.

Nope, he has a nice long tube so I just put him in between some rocks. My reference books ays they like alot of flow but I may have to move him.

I've only had the sun corals for 2 weeks or so, but I've been feeding them with tweezers, mysis and brine shrimp. It's a real pain cause you have to wait til they open up then feed each single polyp. I have over 10 heads so it takes quite some time. It's really cool though, kinda like feeding a nem. They actually take the food from my tweezers and engulf it. Today some of the polyps look very flat while some are huge and puffy. I'm learning as I go. LOL

Yeah, they look like spikey zooas. hehe

Sometimes some will open during the day, I had a few open earlier when I was working on the tank.
