    I found this to be a hardy and quick growing coral
    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.

      This is my Yongei,
      the growth for one year was stopped, i don't know what happened but at a certain time it decided it was the right moment to start to grow, now it's a fast grower.



      Good reefing.

        My so-called yongie doesnt look anything like that IK2VOV...I think there is some variation going on with so-called yongie's. I mean, some one gets in a green stag and they throw the name yongie on it...I think my yongie is actually a granoulousa...

          Adam, i bought this time ago, they sold me as A.Yongei, it's too similar to the one in the Veron Book, you can see it also here, http://whelk.aims.gov.au/coralsearch...20pages/81.htm

          But it's possible that mine is a different.... i'm not shure 100%.
          Good reefing.

                Pretty common around here. At least in central Cali. I'd send you a frag(for a cut of the money you would make of course ), but shipping to germany, I imagine would be quite outrageous.

                  Yes,i know.....
                  In the U.S. are much more rare sps as in germany.
                  Thats harm.
