Cespitularia sp.

Probably the most versatile coral to be found for propagation

First the specimen in centre: it was the result of the mother colony splitting in two... then much later after several events: the mother colony was placed to the left in a small crevice to which it fastened in a matter of days... It then started moving upwards by itself... fascinating :)

Now let's see the whole process in detail

Day One: Notice a very useful shipping cookie and a wonderful fragging job...

After a few days Coral stretched it's foot and started moving off... In just two weeks we could remove the accessory. That's why we never cement ceramic plugs in place. A few weeks later Cespitularia had fragged ITSELF in two !!

After spliting in half Cespitularia then layed a Polyp Branch on rock and a new colony developped... Several days later she did same to the right...

Voila !! Mother Cespitularia was then moved to the left of EOS tank... and these two offsprings much later were moved to center of tank.
