"Its interior becomes blue due the coral's ability to extract iron from surrounding water into a blue salt that is deposited onto the skeleton."

Please in captivity where would this coral get iron from..?

      I have been growing this species for roughly 7 years, it started about the size of a quarter and has grown over 20 inches tall and 25 inches wide. Often overlooked cuz of its color but gives a reef tank a beautiful natural look.
