Many say its evasive. I have the same pieces the last two years, Theyre green and hairy and have never advanced thru the tank

Picture of mine. As you can see it’s just in the left side of the overflow.

Here is just to the right of the overflow.

That is just a fraction of how much it spread. Like others have said though, it just depends on which one you get and I’ve read that only the green ones do it. A chance I m not willing to take.

It’s been awhile, and I’m old so my memory sux… but I don’t think that it was just the green that I had problems with

The seller alread gave me a full refund and the zoa frag and 2x rics look great.

I want to be sure to state that, the poci is still alive and his response last 36 hours has been helpful

Pardon poor photo skills but it seems like most/all of the polyps are back and it enjoys being center of attention
