Steht bei mir in mittlerer Strömung und mittlerem Licht bei 2x HQI 250 + 4x T5. Bei der Plazierung ist zu berücksichtigen, daß diese Koralle nachts durch "Ausklappen" des Wulstes und den dann ausgestreckten Tentakeln deutlich größer wird. Die bis zu 4cm langen Tentakeln kleben dann morgens an den Nachbartieren und vernesseln diese stark. Ansonsten sehr schön und interessant.
