    How big do they get? do they split or do people cut them up when they get too big? Thinking about getting one.

    I haven't seen them reproduced in reef tanks. They don't split and fragging them only makes multiple smaller ones at best.

    3" or so that I've seen. There may be bigger but not much.

    Well I just got my scolymia. Thanks for all the info. This thing rocks! It looks like it has a battery in it. Managed to get a picture before the lights went out. If this passes the
    terminators test. That's my Copper banded butterfly. I will get a few more. Great addition to the aquarium.

    Yeah he will not let me have a trach. I don't event try anymore. He leaves most of my LPS alone. I know what he likes and doesn't. Oh and if you decide to frag a chalice or something, its lunch time.

    So far so good. The Scoly is really happy and vibrant. I think I'm going to get a couple more. I had no idea they were so vibrant. Great addition to the reef!
    Oh and the terminator is not paying it a bit of attention ;Happy

    Never heard of fragging a scoly. Probably why they fetch the price they do. 3-5" max for size and they come in some crazy colors. They like being spot fed a few times a week, like other fleshy LPS.
