I know nothing really about caring for it other than its photosynthetic and it needs calcium

WOw that is cool. I wish I could get stuff like that but I don't have a SW tank. It looks sooo cool.

Are you just going to sit it in the sand or will you set it on live rocks? Will it grow and get bigger or do they pretty much stay the same?

I am hoping it will grow. It will sit in the sand in the front of my tank in-between 2 rocks I think? Still a little new as this is my first Coral I am really excited for it to arrive on Thurs.

yes figi i think brains like to be in the sand. Thats is where i usually see them and I know I heard something about their underside getting irritated if they sit on rocks; good choice on positioning. I know it also needs lots of light so hopefully you have a nice setup as far as that goes.

Great! looks like a good healthy one. I've got to pm you about some corals (day off today) but I'm heading over to Renton to do some shopping. I'll say "hi" to your coral!

I think you're thinking of open brains, like the Trachyphyllia varieties. Those want to be on the sand. This one is a type of favia and doesn't see the dramatic tissue expansion that the trachyphyllia do. I'm pretty sure you can put this one on the rock and leave the sand open for things that really need to be there. Not sure whether it wants to be high or middle though. I'd go middle of the tank and see how it likes it.
