    My experiance with them is that while they don't need as much light or flow as sps, they like the same water chemistry- pristine water with good calcium and alkalinity. They aren't as easy as the more common brains and don't like any hair algea accumulation around them. Sometimes in shipping, an area of flesh gets worn off and algea starts to grow on the exposed skeleton- you want to keep it clean.
    It's REAL nice!!
