    This is one of my first frags. I got it for free after getting a coupon at the Michigan Coral Expo and Swap from Preuss' Pets.

    It is a very nice coral, especially under actinics.

    But be very careful.

    It can grow over everything.

    I have an aquarium where half of my live rock is GSP.

    I have to cut it all out soon.

    I advise that you keep it on one single rock that is in your sand bed and not attached to anything else so you don't have the same problem that I do.

    Some people attach the gsp to the back of their tanks and it will cover the entire wall. It think that looks pretty cool. It also makes it somewhat easy to frag. I personally would either do that or grow it on its own rock separated by sand from the other rockwork. That way you can keep it groomed.
