    Hi all, quick question. Ive always wanted a nice long polyped toadstool and [MENTION=18058]Moneydownthecouch[/MENTION] has offered me one. But all the reading im doing is saying that in an sps tank it results in chemical warfare with the toadstool winning. Anyone have any experience with a toady in an sps tank?

    Cheers, Dave

    they release toxins, most corals do to defend their territories.

    just means running carbon regular etc, I know I struggled personally with sps until my toadies where gone
