E Bay. I have not received it yet and I would love to have a Bounce also.
I got My God Spawn today!
That is so nuts, let's see some pics. How big is it? I think they are suppose to reproduce pretty quick
He is very,very, very small. When he is large enough for a photo, I promise I will send it. I tried to get a pic and not showing up
Try CoralRX pro and place it in low light/flow. Mine recovered after 2 days of spitting gut with a strong dip. Other dips won't help.
Im 50/50 with them. Lost the blue one in left of photo. It just shriveled up one day. The other one is doing outstanding though and is very stable. Its a roll of the dice with them for sure . A healthy specimen right off the bat is critical
We got a beautiful yuma rock with 5 or more on it, and it was doing great. Then all of a sudden, it went downhill and now we one fighting for life. I moved it into a shaded/ medium flow area, and am patiently waiting to see what will happen. At least I was able to capture its beauty before this happened.
Thanks for the info!
I have had very good luck with yuma. I can only recall losing one colony of orange/blue yumas, every other yuma i ever purchased i still have with the exception of a few I sold.
This is a great post. Tyvm for helping me and I'm sure many other, keep our Yumas healthy and happy. :clap2:
Is it the whole yuma that gets bleach white if there is not enough light or just the foot?
Should be the whole thing that bleaches out when there's too much light.
That's what I thought... Somewhere in here I thought I read too little light and was confused...

over 4 months hump
this baby has grown to twice the size but has not split. nevertheless, I love it.
Great post and thanks!
I thankfully have great success with yumas....knock on wood. I have this orange/red yuma with purple base for over 5 months now. The mother is about 5x5 and has given me over 10 babies all on one rock. I also just purchased a yellow rainbow yuma that was released about a month or so ago and has grown 1.5x2 and now has 2 babies! I maintain my yumas in the middle bottom of my tank where I feed my fishes so I think the reason why I am having my success is because they get what my fish don't eat plus their waste....
Just read this, very interesting. Couple of years ago I did a tank redo over and placed several Yumas in my sump. I totally forgotten about it and about two weeks later I noticed the Yuma had multiplied to several yumas. I left it alone and in time it turned into a colony. At first I thought it was the nutrient, low flow and low light. I did not realized until now it might be all the bubbles from my skimmer inside the sump. Alpha, you might be right about the bubbles and plentiful of DO in the reef, I did also noticed the mass amount of bubbles in the reef of Hawaii.
I have owned numerous florida rics and yumas in the past. All have died except a colony i bought off a guy when he was selling me a chunk of live rock. The yumas have orange spots/bubbles on a black brown base. The key for me was to start this colony in the furthest corner of my tank getting only minimal lighting and minimal flow. Kept the rock in that corner under my return output for over 2 years. Recently movedthe rock into my 24g getting direct light. Been there for a year and doing great. I have also tried to sustain other florida rics but they all just eventually lose color and melt. Not sure exactly why this colony survived.
Been reading this thread over and over. I've had a few yumas die... as all of you described here. The latest one this morning. Puking and melting into mushy pieces. It's the mother of all mother yumas... Large, about 6" with perfectly shape bubbles and placement of the bubbles. I've never seen anything like it. I love this one.
Very sad sad day. Makes me want to give up.

You've copied and pasted alot of my words.
Also you sound inexperienced with your own words.
If you had experience in shipping you would know it's impossible keeping corals 6 months are you having a laugh. The amount of stock we sell is ridiculous. Also you want to lay off using chemicals (Prats the lot of you)
Great just purchased my first Yuma 2 days ago... now I'm petrified it's going to die. It came from a local guys tank. He had a bunch of them, around 20 all looking like the one I got. He has had them for years and mine was a baby of his large ones.
I bought this yuma almost a year ago now
The one on the left was from a lfs in Socal
Still alive today
The baby though, while alive has shrank. I'll try to get better pics
