Cespitularia

So I just picked up a large piece. Do I need to put it on an island? Reading mixed reviews on how invasive it gets vs Xenia.

Cespitularia is not the cheapest coral and is sought after by hobbyist. I wouldn't worry about it spreading. Get the correct identification. Difficult to tell what yours actually is.

Picked it up from LA divers den. Looks like it when compared to other pics I have seen. I think most out there that say it spreads fast mistake it for pumping Xenia or Anthelia.

It too spreads but its a hit or miss just like it's cousins. Nevertheless, you need the correct name

Apparently this coral tastes good to tangs. Yellow tang and hippo tang keep grazing on it. Angels have no interest but tangs....who would have thought?
