Wohl die schnellwüchsigste LPS überhaupt; ein jeder Polyp (der seitlich genug Platz hat) teilt sich alle 4 Wochen....
Verträgt viel Licht, wächst aber auch noch im Schatten, für starke Farben ist aber kräftige Beleuchtung vorzuziehen....
Regenerationsfähigkeit ist enorm, selbst wenn kleine Stücke eines Polypen abgebrochen sind, werden diese innerhalb kurzer Zeit neu gebildet...
