This one is about US$250 in Taiwan. I believe it will be cheaper in Japan.

I place the rhizo under rock's shadow. I use 2T5 daylight and 2 T5 actinics. The rizho still open more at night.

I think jendubs site says they reproduce very slowly and that they do so by producing eggs. I was trying to convince a RC member to break his and give me a piece lol but he didn't go for it. If I was him I wouldn't have either. Skydragon, where did he get his?

Question: if I went to japan and purchased a Rhyzo from a fish store, would I be able to bring it back to NY on the plane?

Japan doesn't allow exportation of corals, why do you think japanese corals cost so much in the US. Whoever brought them risked going to JAIL for them.

Even if they did allow exportation you'd need a cites permit (cites.org)

They aren't all from japan that's for sure.
