    Well Im filling up my tank to rapidly I was suppose to limit myself to one addition a month and now im lucky if I can stay down to two. I have no regrets on any of my purchases I probably seen about 30 coral beautys before I saw the one I wanted. but i went in there today to get some frozen brine and of course you got to check out the coral and I saw a "cocoa tube".
    I didnt buy it though. But I never seen this species before it looks like a orange fether duster. what kind of maintance does this coral require? and does anybody have this fish store problem? I Feel like a coral junkie. lol
    thx
    mark

    They are way,way more difficult than regular feather duster worms.I know of no one who has kept them long term.They need heavy feeding micro-plankton/phytoplankton.

    I've seen them at the LFS but after doing research on it it stayed. I settled for the easier feather dusters.

    Like others have said, coco worms are stunning, but even the most experienced aquarists have problems keeping them alive. I always drool over the ones in my LFS. So pretty!
