    Scoly's

    Well I have been bitten by a curiosity bug and the fact I generally am now leaning towards LPS, Clams (again) and Zoas. Scolys fall in to the LPS category (No Chit Sherlock) and I am thinking about looking in to getting one or ten of them. I have a few questions about these though:

    Care- any worse than a normal LPS? (Acans and such)
    Feeding- absolutely necessary to spot feed?
    Proximity to other corals- Can they be placed next to each other? How much room do they need from other unlike corals?

    I'm not talking about the over priced "ultra lineage'd to a car mechanic" stuff. I'm just looking in to ones that look nice (in my eyes) and dont cost more than a house payment. Help a person out

    Scolys are one of the easiest LPS around, and are gorgeous too. They'll appreciate any spot feeding, but they don't require it, from what I've seen. Not territorial, either; I've never seen them open up more than when they're eating, and their tentacles are barely larger than the scoly itself.

    I love my scolys and they are the easiest LPS to keep. I spot-feed mine occasionally with chunky foods as well as Fauna Marin
    s LPS pellets. I keep mine all together in one area and they are fine even with tentacles out and touching each other. They are very hardy as long as you keep them away from other corals that may sting them like chalices.

    That all depends on what size house you have
