TdF is indestructible.  I put mine through so much, including getting chomped on by a parrotfish, only to have it bounce right back.  Definitely a specimen to be proud of!  I love the top layer of hot pink yours has put on. 

Yeah, seems pretty bulletproof. It and a couple other acros in my tank have been doing well recently so I just ordered a couple highends (RR Pink Cadillac and WWC Heart Breaker to name some) to try my hand at. 

 

When I first got my chunk of TDF I tried doing research but couldn’t find much, but one thing that kept coming up was that it was just another Red Planet acro. That you shouldn’t bother buying it and just pick up the cheaper RP.

 

I can say for sure it is not. Mine has hot pink coralites and teal blue growing tips instead of red. The body does get green like RP but it’s more of a lighter blue green.

Try heavy metals... I guarantee you can kill it 😞  Normally though, yeah it seemed to be a trooper and did really well in the tank for a long time.  Definitely will look for another piece.

Well considering how mine is growing and the fact I have a nano I’ll probably do some trimming later in the year and I would be happy to share this piece with the collective. I feel like it’s my duty to kick back some frags considering this was a freebie given to me at my first meetup.

Very kind offer - thanks Salted!  I had been bringing a lot of frags to meetings early last year to give to a lot of new members because the tank (125) was getting overgrown.  Let me tell you, a heavy metal contamination can stop that real quick.  We actually tried to save the Del Fuego colony by taking over to PDXmonkeyboy's place (it was actually his) but it was too late and didn't survive a pretty aggressive dip/treatment (as we didn't know what the problem was at the time).  To be fair, the Del Fuego was one of the last acros to go downhill - which supports the notion of it being generally hardy in tanks.  Very nice coral in my opinion.

      Hi All,
       
      Im looking to add more SPS, Brains, and Euphyllia  to my tank, and wondering what frags people have available and how much they are. Im mostly looking for smaller frags to watch grow out, not really looking for big colonies at the moment. 
       
      Some things I would really like are:
      Red Planet 
      Looking for a yellow SPS
      Interested in most Millepora
      Any torches doesn't matter what color
      Frog Spawn
      Hammers
      Favia
      Lobos
       
       
      If its easier to text my number is 503-961-2504.

      Did I catch this guy mid dinner? It looks like he is eating my coral. I know people say the white ones are ok but what about the dark grey/black?

      How do you earn community reputation? I usually can't post items right away because I don't have enough can someone explain how to get more?
