          Very sensitive to changes!!!

          I got a frag of it about 3 years ago, and it took about a year to acclimate in my tank, finally encrust and start growing branches again. I have a piece of brown valida, or nana (not sure) in my new tank now that I found in the old tank, and I'm hoping it will start to grow again. It was shaded out by my caps, and turned into this encrusted brown hulk. lol

          One thing however that I have found with both nana and valida, is that they will keep their purple tips even after losing their color and regrowing again, unlike a lot of the pink and lime tables etc that we try and lose the colors on.

          Very nice corals when they are happy.
