    This is laughable. I have always respected TCN. It's been years so I can't recall his name. But seriously? People are calling this coral rare, and look what 50 bucks will get you! A 1/2". I have been growing and hacking this coral for years. Darn thing grows almost as fast as xenia. And yes, it "pumps" when all of your flow is turned off. Wow.

    Yeah, I wouldn't mind getting my hands on some either, especially since it sounds like you don't think it's worth $50 ;) $5 snippet will do me just fine!

    I gave my colony to a friend. I suspect it will still be there whenever I want a chunk back. It grows FAST!

    I was able to keep a few of my fav sps in a 20 long. Its actaully pretty sweet as I have all the tech from the big tank. I'm hoping it will be very successful :)

    BTW DG I kept a chuck of the pocci for you.

    Bump, I would love to get a piece of this coral back. Somebody has to have it, I sold and gave away a buttload of pieces. Pictured here on the right.

    Looks really similar to a piece I use to have that I picked up when I lived in St Louis but I can't find anything like it either.
