i actually saw a red scoly at the reefing meeting i went to last weekend. i wasnt bright red, but a nice red and im sure it would have colored up too as it was in the same condition as this one. i offered to buy it but the owner didnt know a fair price to sell it, esp. due to its condition.

i guess people dont realize you need to feed these things. wish i could have gotten it.

its best if you set it on "fast" as medium seems to go to slow

i really enjoy this coral. i enjoy it in my tank, its colors, its feeding habbits, nursing it back to such great health, its just amazing to me.
i saw another scoly at a LFS a few days ago. it was an aussie scoly, neon green and neon red/pink, about 1-1.5 inches in diameter. $250

if everything goes smooth i should be picking up another one for my next tank. unfortunately not of those colorations but still a nice specimen. its in about the same shape as how i got this one. decent coloration, and seeing how mine colored up from feeding, im sure this one will too.
if things go smooth i should be picking it up at this months reefing meeting on the 28th.

I'm completely fascinated with this animal. I'd hate to think how much time I'd spend sitting in front of the tank watching it if I had one. I'd never get anything done! In which ocean reef are they found as natural inhabitants? It could be in a place that I must go diving in
