Mt tyree soli does very well for me. I turn it every 6-8 mos to get it to sprout out new tables. This pic is a couple mos old.
Very cool to manipulate its growth, I want to have as many table shelfs on it as i possably can.

Murphreef,

I cannot get my Hyacinthus to color up. Where do you have it placed in your tank?

i've had pretty good luck with my northstarcorals pink clathrata.
i really miss the gems that bill bramucci used to sell back then . acquired as a 1" frag in 10/2003 and have nearly lost it a couple times. under 10k, it goes bright red with baby blue tips. right now its under 12k's and is turning a dark pink/red.

hey u know i have actually had it down low where i first started it as a small wild coral that i had no idea would table it did fine there but i was running out of room b4 it was guna start hitting the front glass so i was brave and moved it to the other side of the tank and about 1/2 way up in the tank its directly under one of my phoenix 250W 14K HQI bulbs and it never stressed or changed it liked either place i had it.... at least now i can continue to keep watching it grow further out....

sadly, its only about 4" in diameter as its been thru quite a bit. i've fragged it a few times and the frags seem to do well. i've got another small colony of it going in my tank too.

Looks like a table to me. Similar to my Desalwii or a Plana. Both Crayola Tables.

Here is mine:

very very nice! I hope to copy your beautiful corals at home myself. Where do you buy your corals? A good supplier is so important. Or do you buy from fellow reefers? I ask, because I need to purchase some myself.

this coral isn't the fanciest but has lived through one crisis after another and seems to be bullet proof so I guess that makes it my most successful table.
