                Wow it's a Big one! Any close up shots?. How old is it, I'm jealous I've tried about 3 different times and I can't keep them.

                  Great coral Tim.
                  I've had two Hoeks die now, very quickly after purchase. Not going to bother trying again.

                    Hi Bogg its nearly 3 years old grown from a small frag .. Lots dont have much luck with them
                    Mine has prime location under my 400w lamp also indirect flow helps.

                    Hey Ross this hobby can be very trying at times esp with Sps , Maybe try a Blue Nobilis instead they arent so hard to keep and can go electric blue like my used to look like

                        Hi Bob im not that far into Zeo yet just starting to get to grips with the very basics first.
                        Do you think Spur2 will bring the blue right down to the base?

                              Acropora hoeksemai is really very difficult to keep, don't you agree?!
                              The mind is like a parachute, it doesn't work if it isn't open.
