      i had one, it stn'd over a period of a year untill it was all gone. I dont get it.
      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.

          Here's one of mine. . .this one's on the bottom of my tank. I have another that's cup shaped which is about mid-way up in my rock-work. I'll get a photo next week (I'll be out of town).

                    I got it from a friend...It's very slow growing.
