I know i got sth that is shine enough.
I have seen many NPS after i jumped into the abys half a year ago.
I lost some as they are really difficult(especially small polyp ones and the blueberry style ones), and i successfully kept some till now.
Judging from my expierence, those are able to survive seems to have either a large polype or they have a polyp like menella sp.
I have collected several menella variant like yellow, purple, red however,
This one ? You ever seen a blue specimen?
Or it just belongs to another genus?
Your idea :bounce2::bounce2:

In my experience, one of the hardiest. In the past have seen some totally neglectected in a LFS for a pair of months and just loose some tissue due to algae growth. Recovers fast when properly fed.

You have a very good luck. Tons of NPS gorgs to choose I see... Here the quantity and diversity of them in the shops has fallen a lot in the past years :(

Ah thank you for your share.
I'm in china and i found this specimen in coincidence when i was browsing in th LFS. The vendor told me this is from South China Sea...So...I thought they also come from Indo just as other menella do
Anyway i love it. It's rare to find a coral in sky blue color among this hobby and let along its hardiness.

I have two, purchased years apart. Despite a fair amount of research, I have never been able to figure out what they are.
Hardier than most, though.
