Husbandry

(Utinomi, 1972)

Very special thanks for the first photo of Erythropodium hicksoni to John Turnbull, Marine Explorer, Austalia.
John has taken this photo at South Head, Sydney Harbour, New South Wales, Australia.

Erythropodium hicksoni has an enorm potential to overgrow stones, rocks and even other corals easily, nettling or not.
Would be a good idea to let this coral in the sea!
