LADIES` NIGHT .. ANDI F
Hi, my name is Andrea Finglespritz, & as you can see, I`m having a bad hair day. The sky is not blue, the result of a Yellow Tang, swimming right behind me. I`m mired in this brown stuff underfoot, which I can only guess at it`s origin. Hey there, whoa Andrea. That`s a nice fish behind you. It`ll be gone soon, & that brown crap, is really interesting.
I saw it at the bottom of a display tank at a fish store & I knew it promised to become the swan to the ugly duckling.
I had one of the store workers throw it in a bag along with a few snails.
At the time it was only a piece of rock with a brown encrusting spot on it.
I put it in my reef & it soon began to grow , eventually encrusting the whole rock
Within two years it started growing knobs out of the brown covering & they started to grow into branches.
After three years it is a prized coral, with purple & green tips from which protrude the polyps of the coral colony.
Everything turned out perfectly.
