Carnation coral. Non photosynthetic. Hard to keep.

It's not a carnation, it's a scleronepthya aka flower tree. They are non-photosynthetic, but not nearly as difficult to keep as dendronepthya. Put it in an area of high flow and target feed it a mix of BBS, rotifers, phytoplankton, and some other filter feeder food everyday and it will be fine.

You're the type of man who passes by sports illustrated and grabs encyclopedia brittanica when you take a dump, huh?

Did someone mention Alto ???
Im GAGA for Alto !!

I'd give you a hug but you might stab me

It is one of the most tricky solf coral to keep in the reef tank. The best way make it standing up right and open is mount the coral up side down in a cave and less light.

I stand corrected. Good id.
