How many of you would put GSP in your tank? If so, would you put it on your back wall? On the back of your rock work? Where would you have it?

I have 2 small rocks of it. Trying to decide whether to place as an island or just let them grow. Growing on the overflow seems like it would be cool at first and then a pain later. Kinda undecided at this point.
"It seemed like a good idea at the time..." The stuff can grow like weeds given the right conditions (if it's situated on rock). This is why I keep mine on mini islands. It can thrive - it's just never given a chance to go wild...

I did not mention that my desk top tank is a green only tank and the GSP fit the bill perfect for what I wanted to build... and I bought the GSP with full knowledge of the issues that it can cause. I think a lot of people fall into the trap of buying it as a first coral which I really think any first corals more than often turn into first regrets haha

Maybe. It is easy to kill, for me. It is not like some Z&P, cloves, some mushrooms or other types of stuff that can survive kalkwasser pH and recolonize. I have mostly just been able to pull it off. However, I don't put it in since I do end up having to kill it in quick fashion.

LOL This is my dilemma. I've got a nice psammocora growing on my overflow now, but was thinking maybe putting GSP on my backwall. A friend tore his tank down and gave me some, but I'm afraid to actually do it... Haha!

I have branching GSP on an island in my nano. My porcelain crab lives there and fans all day. The GSP has been on that island through two tanks and has never left the island even with nearly two years of growing, it just gets more branches and grows more up. When it starts to reach out too far a quick snip with the scissors to a branch or two tames it in seconds. It fluoresces beautifully and has great movement. Zero complaints.
