"I bought a small aquacultered purple tip from a lfs he was only 1 inch when I got him 2 years later he is now 6 inches and beautiful I don't over skim my water and he is under ho 24 inch t5's on the bottom of my 16 gallon nano I think getting him at such a small size was an advantage because he was not taken from the wild his great great grandparents from the 1990's were I do not feed him directly he gets left overs and food missed by my fish and other corals I have seen many of these in lfs sick and not looking healthy at all so I never purchased one but I never see one this small b4 so I thought I would have a better chance with him. I also keep a mandarin in the tank no problems maybe lucky or he knows better and I have had the mandarin for 3 years. I think the adult wild collected ones are too beat up to try to keep but if you come across a tiny one that has never been in the ocean in good health I think you have a better chance of a long life since the are so beautiful. I also don't over skim that might have a big part of my success and I also use natural sea water in my tanks I collect myself I feel sorry for any reefer who can't do this it makes reefing so much easier and your corals so much healthier I do 20% water change with screened and chemically prefiltered natural seawater. You just can't collect the water after a rain storm you must wait 3 days. I hope this can help you guys cause the elegance is by FAR the best looking lps even under 10,000 k lights no atinics needed to make them glow but you still need them anyway."
