    Default Toadstool Leather


    0 Not allowed!
    I'm still researching what corals to add next, and i was wondering about the toadstool leather and how they would work in my tank. A guy in my town has one for $25.
    How would they like the 1200 gph flow I have? I've heard they don't do well in high flow, but I don't know if that was a rumor.

    Does anyone has any experience keeping these? If so, are they worth buying?

    How fast do they grow?

    Sorry for so many questions, I just don't want to get something that will soon take over my tank or not do well in it.

    Thanks for any help

    I'm going to be adding one of these to my tank pretty soon also. From what I've read they like medium to strong water movement. I don't have any experience keeping them yet. But I've heard that they're known to grow very quickly under the proper conditions are hardy and extremely easy to frag.

    I can tell you both that they get way too large for either of your tanks. I have one in my 125 that I will eventually need to remove. I've only have my Toadstool for a few months and it would already be too large for a 10gal tank and that is with having my Sailfin Tang snack on it for a week or so. Have a look at this beauty in a 75gal tank.

    Haha wow, that thing is massive! I have read some reports of them weighing upwards of a couple hundred pounds in home aquaria also. Amazing!

    Wow, thats huge, I'm glad I asked. Thank you, lol, I may just get some shrooms and more zoas, although I would like something a little different, I guess I'll keep looking. Is there anything you would recomend , something with a little higher light requirement then my current stocking and doesn't get massive, I have 192 watts of light to spare.

    Yeah, that is one down side to leathers in small aquariums, most of them get huge. There is a guy in my local reef club that has a finger leather that he needs to frag and he will be able to give every member of the club a fairly large piece. You may want to look into Kenya Tree, it doesn't get too large (big enough) and it is very easy to grow and isn't exactly unattractive. If you want a few frags I have plenty.

    Those would be a perfect addition. I'd love a few frags, but let me make sure I can't get them locally. I'm always nervous about buying living things through the mail. Stuff always goes wrong. I'll pm you if I can't find any.

    There is a guy locally that is gonna give us a few frags of kenya tree and he's only a 20 minuet drive away. I've read that they need some added elements, like iodine, but wouldn't this be replenished with the saltmix?
