the tricolor is 9" across and 5" wide, just a spectacular size to find in a LFS

They had a few others but the wallet was empty

Good luck with the table. That coral seems to be one of the hardest to keep that I have tried over the years. Pound it with flow and light and you should be ok if params are stable.

I just lost my large red hyacinthus... very important to keep flow across it so nothing settles. I changed tanks, moved flow around, and it hated it and died. They are easier to grow out form frags.
