Eine sehr ausdauernde Koralle.
Das sie ziemlich robust ist kann ich sagen, weil sie eine meiner ersten Korallen war (hat damals so einige "mini" Katastrophen unbeschadet überlebt).

Die "Plutoniumgrünen" Polypen sind der absolute Hammer.

Eine gute Einsteigerkoralle, die obendrein auch noch sehr schön ist.

Zu halten wie alle Favites, also nicht zu hell und ein wenig Strömung.
