  • How long do they usually last?

    How long do the "bad" elegance corals last before they die?

    Cause I bought one at least 6 weeks ago because I thought it looked very healthy, it looked like one that would live. It is still alive and doing great! Yay! It is in my 130 gallon softie/lps currently and permenantly! I hope it continues to prosper. It is stiiiilllll alive!!!

    Let the bidding begin


    Proud owner of an Elegance Coral "that lived". (It is thriving whith long tentacle tips...purchased in January 2005.) It has white tentacle tips, I beleive this has something to do with ones that will typically live due to the collection site.
