Hello Jason! Recognising the addiction is the first step to fight against it! But I'm sorry, that addiction has no rehab possibilities hehehe. Trust me, I'm more addicted than you by far and can tell it won't stop increasing.

Good pieces! Now just make them grow!

Regards

Hello, my name is Bob and I too am an addict. Try feeding them live whiteworms and blackworms and they will explode with growth.

you need to heal the trauma

the first step of beating your addiction is to pack all of them in a box and ship them to me.

you should act quickly, addictions can get dangerous

Should i tell you guys with gloat that they are really abundant in chinese market?
And the price is really low to end class. Just 25RMB($4 currency transferred) for 4-5 heads.

Here is a pic to proof [IMG][/IMG]

Hi,Joe, those are true colors, I call my dendros the Rainbow dendros. I got a small 3 head colony of those from a friend via trade for some SPS. Agreed, I never found any, that even remotely resembles mine, most are orange, yellow or white.

Hello Mark

Darn, you are very lucky, they are truly unique.
I will search and hope I do find them one day (my new mission).

Joe

Feed them 5 times a week. If they are small, less than 3/8 inch in diameter, feed them whenever the tentacles come out. I have one I got for free as a rescue case and I fed it 3-4 times a day until started to look healthy.

Hi Mark
Those are very unique dendros. Do the polyps all radiate out from a common base? Is there branching or is all the growth radially from the base?

Did the vendor say where they got them?

I've had ones with a bright red-orange centre and Tubastraea with pink tips but I've never seen a bright red core like yours (with the pink tips). This may be a nice colour morph or some unique species of dendrophyllia that's not often traded.
