    Beware, these guys have long sweeper tentacles, do not place them close to your beloved SPS or any other coral for that matter.

      I have a frag off of Altantis Aquarium Aspera. It supposedly needs A LOT of light and med flow. It has been doing good but not growing as fast as I would think.

      Here's the pic of the mother colony from Atlantis:

          mane, when did you get a hold of the "Watermelon" Aspera? I heard it was owned by one person, but then Steve Tyree got a hold of it and recently made it an LE. It looks so beautiful!!

            I got it from seareef a while back =), he was the original owner. I had it before Tyree, infact at first I was going to throw everything I had at tyree to get his piece to keep it more rare. I figured what the heck though haha. My piece is starting to show some awesome growth! Very bright man.

                        Do you target feed or just feed the tank?

                              I got this one couple month ago...It's really smaller than a dime, so now it's getting bigger more than a dollar coin...I do not know what it call, but I saw at night the pink tentacle come out a lot...
