My lobo is on my rocks. All my other brains are on the sandbed.

Ive got one that looks just like yours. I picked up mine at a lfs for 5 bucks.The place was going out of business.I have it for about a year and it has grown fairly fast.Mine is a little larger than a nfl football cut in half.This is the one coral that will never leave my tank.

Thanks masterswimmer.

I like it but I didn't want to sound bias in my opinion. It has really fared well in my tank.

You're welcome. I love the color and the fleshy polyps of the lobes looks super healthy. Enjoy it and stand proud .

I bought a 3"red open brain last thursday I'll post pics tomarrow. I have it about halfway up sitting on a rock ledge in a 15" deep tank lit by a 50/50 96w quad CF. Should I move it down?

My purple tang just recently started picking at my green open brain, the one I posted a picture of. Any ideas as to why it would start this behaviour?

Thanks

Here's a pic of my new (of about 12 days) red open brain feeding on a small piece of shrimp.



Here's one after feeding




And here is one of the top view. Is there any need to worry about this? I'm talking about the brown lesion the pink arrow is pointing to.
