Having to go to a shop that sells them and not being able (practically, if not legally) to just go outside and pick one up from nature where you live is what makes it exotic. I think your argument loses sight a bit of what we do here. We keep tropical animals in our homes and get to look at tiny reefs instead of paying big money to go to the actual reefs for a few moments. That's plenty exotic.Well if you want to play samantics sure. All I'm saying is every time I go to my local reef stores (which there are half a dozen) if they don't have anything else they have euphyllia and the range of euphyllia colors don't vary like acros and zoas. Takes very little to maintain them. Even a novice can buy an "exotic" euphyllia and grow heads or a monster head. Its the first coral I ever had 15 years ago, I knew virtually nothing, it grew and grew. I see WAY more now than then and they were cheap then. How exotic can they be. Every beginner wants a cheap, wavy in the flow, coral that's easy to keep. Euphyllia is about #1 for that.
