Elegance corals?

Post by bigeflashgordon on Mon 14 Jan 2013, 4:05 pm

I'm highly considering picking up an elegance coral for my 30 gal reef.. But I haven't heard a lot about them and their care.. Does anyone have one or have ever had one?

See if you can find out it's origin. The Aussie elegance do better in aquariums than the Indo ones. The Indo elegance always die in aquariums. If they don't know the origin then it's probably an Indo. Aussie elegance are always advertised as such.

You can usually tell an Aussie from an indo by the bone on bottom! If its Aussie it was cut from a large colony and will have a flat bottom where it was cut away, if its Indo it will have a cone shaped bone, if its Indo I wouldn't buy it. BTW, its also one of my favorite corals, I had one at one time for several years. They are about he most potent corals you can buy, thay pack a hell of sting and when fully extended will be about five times their closed up size.

I had an aussie elagance coral before, it liked fairly low light and not alot of flow, it would retract if it was in too high of flow. I kept mine in the sandbed and it grew quite a bit before I sold of my livestock The get the aussie not the indo because aussies are alot hardier, by far one of my favorite corals.
