I've had mine for about 3 months, although it was owned by my co-worker for a number of years. I love it, it is my prize coral, with a maroon body and neon green tips. If you're thinking of buying this coral it's a good addition, but placement in the tank can be tough. Just try to face it up so ALL the polyps get light, not just the biggest ones. And try to place it somewhere without TOO much flow, but it does need some flow. I recommend feeding it squid once a week, a little bit to each poyup head, and maybe zooplankton once a week, but not on the same day.

I had the soft heads of mine eaten by an emerald crab. Any chance it's still alive and may grow back? Any way to deter the crab from eating it again?

I have had my frogspawn for several months. It is a beautiful pink shade. It seems to be very happy sitting on the sand in the aquarium. Since I have owned it, it seems to have grown new branches. I do not have it near any other coral or creature that it can sting. However, many of my fish swim under and around it all the time. It has been a great addtion to my aquarium and has not been difficult to care for at all.

Have had this coral for a few days now and love it. I had to mount mine to live rock using a two part epoxy to keep them from tumbling over. Neon green frogspawn is the best looking in my opinion.
