Soft Corals

Devil's Hand grows easily in good water conditions. It has more than doubled in size in a few months, and continued to garner attention with its delicate yellow polyps. These will receed inside the coral and the main body will shrink somewhat for a couple of days, as if to prepare for the next growth spurt. VHO lighting suffices, and avoid contact with other neighboring corals that might sting it.  Under metal halides, it grew to the size of a baseball glove, and dropped frags on a weekly basis.  I gave away frags to people all the time, just to control the excess.  Eventually I gave away the parent coral to use that space for something else.
