New violet cespitularia

Mind if I ask the source of your cespitularia? I picked up a frag a couple weeks back from Pacific East Aquaculture. I really like the coral. I'm still trying to understand if it is happy or not because while I expected the ends to open or close - pulse maybe is a better description similar to Xenia they sort of just wave around.

Mine looks similar to yours in the flow and seems larger. I was reading more about them and thought I read they don't ship very well but once you get them in the tank and they recover they do very well. I was thinking maybe I shouldn't have bought it but it seems to be growing.

I got this one from @Cultivated Reef
It opened literally minutes after I put it in the tank. It was part of my second purchase from them and I would highly recommend them to any one. They have a great selection and customer service communicates very well.
