      This is about 10 month old and about the size of a youth football...

          I find that if you want one that will live, you must buy the kind with WHITE tips.

          I have one that is IDENTICAL to gqjeff's elegance with white tips. I bought it because it looked perfect. 3 months later, it is still alive and going. I have no doubt that is will live.

          Although, sadly, I strongly beleive that babiche's elegance has about had it IMO. Notice the small tentacles?? They should be much longer than that, 3-4 times longer, IMO. I just dont see it looking that healthy. JMO.
          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.

              yep so are mine...I dont think there should be variance in tentacle length regardless of where they came from on the reef...healthy ones always have huge tentacles.

                        Did you place its base directly on the rock structure???

                          yes, I know it that it would be positioned on the sand, but have had cure that the polyps does not touch the rocks.

                            Here is my elegances corals.I have four of them,2 are baby droped from mother colony and 2 big.I bought him in 1998.
                            IMO position on the rocks are much better then on the sand.

                              Hi Guy's. I'm new to the board and will be running ZEOvit on a system of mine shortly.
                              Just a quick question. I have an Elegance coral that I have had for about 18 months and it is thriving.
                              My question is will ZEO have any adverse affects on this coral. It's a well known fact that Elegance corals prefer a slightly richer nutrient enviroment and maybe that's why I have had success with this coral
                              I'm sure I'll be posting a few more questions as I get into this.
                              My system is leaning towards being an SPS dominated tank and details of it can be found here:
