I recently took some pictures of my Christmas tree rock, absolutely love this piece! So much bio diversity on a ‘boring’ rock.

Bought this rock two years ago when my tank was just three months old. The worms are doing great but some time ago the Cyphastrea on the rock died off. I might glue a new frag onto the rock, what do you think?

It lives happily in my 40 gallon shallow reef tank, with no sump/filtration, extra feeding or other measures to keep it.

Do you have a Christmas tree rock, lets see some pictures!

Thanks! They're actually growing out of the live Porites coral...was yours just growing out of a piece of rock or the Cyphastrea coral? I hope my worms grow to the size of yours!!

My rock was completely covered with Cyphastrea coral, with tubes for hermit crabs and worms in between. :)

Amazing! always wanted a nice show piece christmas tree worm rock, but they have been outside my price range.
I hear they're pretty expensive in Europe and the US...I'm a lot closer to Indonesia so they're a lot more affordable for me...

I can remember when my local fish store had Fiji Rock and Tonga. And often times we would get Christmas tree worms in our rock with brittle stars and all kinds of groovy stuff. I'm just wondering how far that translates to today's standards.

I can only imagine that nowadays live rock with Christmas tree Worms is probably like $20 a pound
It’s closer to 200 a pound nowadays unfortunately which is why I’ve never invested in one. I remember in the LFS we had a large piece of Christmas tree worm rock that we kept for several years until we had to sell it on.
