    Rare Blue Sympodium

    Hi all. I have recently purchased this (apparently rare) Blue Sympodium coral. All the pollyps have opened...and it seems happy. Has anyone kept these before...and if you have...what are their prefferences regarding light and flow?

    I dont know that sympodium is rare, rather it is kind of new to the hobby. Our local shop, Phishy Business, has both green and the green/blue center right now. From talking to Aaron, they seem to like a bit lower flow. They are having success both under halides and a bit shaded, so I'm not sure whether light placement is a big factor or not.

    No problem. They are really just starting to show up here as well. Cool looking coral for sure. I plan on getting a frag myself this weekend.

    Very nice looking coral (the pic is LOL).

    Treat it similar to Xenia. Or google "Ocotcoral" as it should fall under that broad category.
