Went into Lincoln to the small aquatics shop there, got a couple of colonys of both Duncans and Euphyllia  , in the tank now and settling in , hopefully over the next 24 hours they will expand fully and i can get some pictures  .

Duncan has about 10 heads and the Euphyllia has 5 large ones and a lot of babies  .
Do not mock the snake because it has no horns.For who is to say that one day it may become a dragon,as one just man may become an army...Water Margin.

Obviously not fully expanded and i did shift the Euphyllia about a bit to get a half decent spot , so , still in a bit of a sulk , hopefully tomorrow will be better  .


Also purchased a new UV tube as im going to be adding stock , the old one is over a year old .


Looking in the big old Coral book it say`s Duncans like a bit of target feeding   :grin:  Always liked um never had one.


Rather like Cataphyllia jardineri  which i kept away from in the past due to the problems so many of them had, i wonder has that all gone now?

I love my duncans. They are an elegant coral. Mine are being hosted by my male clown as he isn't allowed in the nem. I love the euphyllia parancora (branching hammer) mine didn't grow for ages then just seemed to multiply like  crazy (must have been a reason). Either way nice coral :)
