    I saw it at my LFS. And I said, "I don't know what the heck this thing is, but I'm not leaving the store without it. No matter what the price!" So I bought it. I got home, and discovered it is a lollipop tunicate, aka pom pom tunicate. How bad ass is this thing?!?! I LOVE IT!

    I saw those at one of my LFS before. They are amazing looking. When I inquired about them I was told something like it was a Strawberry, or a Raspberry coral. Which I thought was odd as the color is blue and not red. I was also told that they are super hard to take care of. I hope you got what you say and that my LFS guy had his head wedged because they really are super cool looking corals in person.

    Very nice, good luck with it. I had a buddy that had one and it died on him after about a year.
