Let me just say that you are a Pet-a-holic. Cute pictures of your hamster and cat.
I too have a bubble coral and it is extremely huge now. About the size of my two fist side-by-side. I've only had it for 3 months! I bought it about a fist big.
Mine has a huge lip from left to right.
I wish I could see examples of budding like what melosu said. However, I remember melosu telling me that he's had his bubble coral for 5 years and never budded so far. Any lucky ones out there??
