I believe you have this in the wrong forum, unless I'm thinking of the wrong coral. A toad stool is a soft coral, not a LPS. And for their care: I never owned on, but i belive they're similar to the leathers I've had over the years. Easy and not light demanding. A little noxious so fish tend to leave them alone. Can get fairly large, but look pretty cool as a center piece.

Not much, absolutely easy.

Love light and random medium flow.

Like iodide maintained in the 0.03-0.06 range.

Sometimes take a month or two to fully extend.

Perfect!
Can grow to be one of the biggest corals in the tank, may shade others.

Then the toad stool may not be in my tank over a year

I really like the toad stool, but if it outgrows my 24g, I'll have to offer it up to a fellow reefer

True---fragging a definate possibility

Fragging a possibility with the Toad Stool---since i just setup a 20g frag tank. My first resident is a Sinularia that i'm currently dividing up. The Sinularia started as a huge mother coral---then seperated to 4 different corals and 10 2" frags so far. I heard stories how if Sinularias are over fragged, that they can quickly toxify the entire tank---so i didnt start fragging it until i set up a seperate tank. I never frag more than 20% of the coral at one time---most times i dont even reach half that---dont wanna overstress the corals.
