    Hey, I have a couple corals I'm thinking about putting in my seahorse tank. Are Kenya tree and green starburst polyps seahorse safe? By save, I'm wondering if the sting of these corals will harm them. I already have a couple mushrooms, but I want to add more diversity. The kenya tree is getting large and the starburst I haven't had long but they have already grown quite significantly.
    Thanks for any help, and please feel free to list any other corals you think would work well. The lighting is pretty low so far, I'm probably going to have 3 pc blubs on the 35 gallon hex tank.
    Also, anyone have any cheap corals close to Cedar Falls they could sell for cheap that will be safe for them?
    Thanks, Adam

    Haha, yea that's what got me thinking. If there's any way to remove a cluster of them I'll take some, I'm sure we can work something out since I'm going to be buying half your stuff already!

    It was also partly due to that and the huge kenya tree I have in my reef tank that got me thinking. I got it off the rock and put it into the corner for now. I don't want my tank overcrowded with kenya tree and gsp like a bunch of people's I've seen. A friend gave me a little piece of the gsp a month or two ago and it's already quadrupled in size. I have a rock that's off to the side and not part of the central rockwork because my diamond goby made a cave under it, so I left it there for him. I put the gsp on that rock so that if it gets close to the other rocks I can peel it away some or move the rock before it spreads like wildfire.

    I wouldn't mind it spreading in my seahorse tank, it would be great for pod reproduction!

    Yeah, I am sure we can work something out   [​IMG]    I do have a couple of clusters that are attached to rocks that could work out well.  You will have to take a look and see if that would work for you.   Thanks again...

    Does pulsing xenia have a sting? I have some of that I got pulled off my rocks last week that's off to the side in the sand that I could put in there too. I'm gonna have that tank stocked(coral wise) in a matter of days!

    Well I think I found what I'm looking for. http://www.seahorse.org/library/articles/tankmates/tankmates.shtml

    So far, I can put in my gsp, xenia, zoas, mushrooms, sun coral frag, kenya tree, and some of your daisy/clove polyps.
