  1. I mean, don't many of the SPS we find most challenging to keep occur in the intertidal zone anyways? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. I believe the one you're referring to is a St. Thomas mushroom. They're my new fav. They're also an excellent example of the taxonomical challenges we run up against in this hobby. I've seen them referred to as both Discosoma sanctithomae and Rhodactis sanctithomae, and while I believe the consensus in the scientific community is that they're R. sanctithomae, both names are accepted; the Discosoma name seems more commonly used in our hobby; and there has been a long history of names used for it (http://www.marinespecies.org/aphia.php?p=taxdetails&id=456765).

I have seen Discosoma sp. with bubble/tentacles as pronounced as these, but they may be misclassified. Sascha is totally right; the mushroom corallimorphs haven't been fully classified yet, and with their recent popularity I think collectors are bringing

  11. Yeah, they're really cool! They used to be really uncommon, but they're showing up in our local LFSs recently too. This is where I first read about them, over s decade ago now (gotta love the internet): http://www.advancedaquarist.com/2003/2/inverts
