I’m very interested in Leptoseris corals, please show em off and your placement of it.

According to Tidal Gardens this is a good coral to keep in shadowy areas. Which is why I’m interested in this particular coral.


Thanks

Jack-o 3" off the bottom of my 24" tall 120.
It did well for awhile but it started to loose color and I put it in my frag tank. Its coloring back up at a higher light level.

The blue one has encrusted pretty high up the kenya tree before. It makes it real easy to frag and doesn't seem to damage the coral not that I overly care as I have tons of it.

They are both in relatively low light areas but not crazy low light.

Beautiful pictures! That blue one almost likes like a blanket of snow. Does it have a name?

Yeah it's called "mr freeze". I almost forgot I have one more

This one is heavily shaded and while it is growing, it's very very slow compared to the other 2. They seem to take a year or so to settle in then really take off, but slight encrusting starts almost right away.

Sooooo wild! Can’t believe the kenya tree tolerates that?
