i have had that sponge for 5 years, it has grown some, & ive aquacultered it for my local club, its not deadly to fish.. & it does color up under higher lighting..it loves high flow too...also sand dust will stop its growth for months, very easy to frag, just press it into a rock & it stays

Does anyone have any links to articles relating to the gorgonian species Menella ? Or for that matter any good reading material about Menella. Uhuru/Aquabacs surely you two have come across detailed information, through personal experience or otherwise, regarding this species. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks !

Awesome thread, but I have a suggestion. Could you state the temperature range these guys like? Or, are they all the same?

Since most are from deep waters colder is better. I run my tank at 76.

Common name: Red Chili Coral
Scientific Name: Alcyonium palmatus
Care Level: Beginner (Even though some would disagree with me)
Disposition: Semi-aggressive
Placement in tank: Low (and they prefer to be upside down, hanging from a ledge)
Light Level: Non Photosynthetic
Water Flow: Medium Intermittent
Diet: Filter Feeder (I have never target fed mine, but some people recommend it)
Range: Jakarta, Bali
Supplements: Strontium, Iodine

This was his previous location when I first got it, but apparently had too much light, flow or not enough food and started to die.


This is the coral when I thought it was dead.


After about 3 months of no polyp extension (Honestly I had forgot about this coral and everything), I did a major aquascape change and tank cleanup and he ended up in the back of the tank against the glass. I never got the urge to throw it away, even though it looked dead, because he still had some red color to it.

This is it now in his new location. He loves it. It has deeper red and the polyps are normally out all night. They were starting to go back in on this picture because it was morning.

Not sure if stars count, but this one would thrive in an nps tank with a continuous feeding system.


•Scientific Name- Astrophyton Muricatum
•Common Name- Giant Basket Star
•Type of Organism- Basket Star
•Care Level- Intermediate-Advanced
•Reproduction- Spawning
•Placement/Orientation- Finds its own spot
•Feeding- Numerous feedings, especially at night when the star is open, a continuous feeding system is recommended, feeds on tiny to medium organic matter and organisms
•Sensitive to water chemistry and changes in water chemistry (pH, specific gravity, salinity, o2 levels, etc.), intolerant of copper based medications/additives
