Duncans - (Duncanopsammia axifuga)

Duncanopsammia axifuga - commonly known as Duncans or whisker coral

 

I only started to see these appear in LFS's about 18 months ago, before that I'd never heard of them. They're not cheap but they grow fairly quickly and I've found them very easy to keep, adaptable to various lighting and flow.

 

Lovely looking coral in my opinion and will eat meaty food, even flake that they catch!

Great coral, Easy to look after, If you feed it it will grow quickly and is very easy to frag.

 

So shelling out on one will soon pay for itself. :)

As Mark, I,ve had these about 8 months and growing pretty well, fairly bombproof coral IMO as long as the are not getting battered.

Will be fragging these as a favour shortly, turn them around every couple of months so the new buds get to the light this will help growth.

 

Here's my little patch.

Warning they can react badly to epoxy, I originally stuck mine and since I've lost a head and remaining four still ain't happy a month on

i would think again on that one lee if the coral is still not happy after all this time imo it's not the epoxy..

From what I've read it sounds like the problem to me, basically I've killed it and it's no gonna recover
