LPS Corals

LPS (Large Polyp Stony) corals are generally larger calcareous corals with larger fleshy polyps than those of the small polyp stony (SPS) coral. They range in ease of keep from being some of the easiest to some of the most difficult of corals to keep. Some LPS corals also have long tentacles called sweeper tentacles which are used to 'clear' other corals away from their immediate vicinity.

Beautiful home reefs can be either a simple reef with hardier, less demanding animals, or a more complex reef with higher maintenance specimens. Many LPS corals are quite hardy and can even be fast growing. These stony corals are generally easier to keep in the aquarium than the small polyp stony (SPS) corals. For the most part they require less intense lighting and a lower water movement than SPS corals. Both of these types of corals lay down calcium on a hard skeleton via the polyps. Thus the name names stony coral or hard coral. This means they require adequate levels of calcium to thrive. Generally a level above 400 ppm is desirable. Many authors recommend 430-480 ppm calcium for these corals. Other elements needed for many of these corals to thrive are strontium, iodine, and trace elements. Many of these corals can be fed small bits of seafood (shellfish, crustaceans, squid, fish), but as they derive much of their nutrition from the zooxanthellae contained in their tissue, feeding is usually not necessary. Corals like these will propagate either by spawning or by "budding". This means the parent will grow small corals that will separate from the parent, or the parent will simply separate into multiple corals. Some LPS favorites include the Elegance Coral, Hammer, Galaxy, and Torch Corals, Frogspawn, Fox or Jasmine Corals, Disk and Plate Corals, and Bubble and Pearl Corals.

The following are those corals usually referred to as Large Polyp Stony (LPS) Corals: - Alveopora - Blastomussa - Catalaphyllia (Elegance Coral) - Caulastrea (Candycane Coral) - Cynarina - Euphyllia (Hammer Coral, Galaxy Coral, and Frogspawn) - Favia - Favites - Fungia (Disk Coral) - Galaxea - Goniopora - Goniastrea - Heliofungia (Plate Coral) - Herpolita - Lobophyllia - Montipora - Mycedium - Nemanzophyllia (Fox or Jasmine Coral) - Physogyra (Bubble Coral) - Platygyra - Plererogyra (Pearl Coral) - Polyphillia (Slipper coral) - Scolymia - Trachyphyllia - Tubastrea - Turbinaria - Tubipora - Wellsophyllia

Pink/Purple/Blue Tip Elegance Coral
Catalaphyllia jardinei
Description:The Catalaphyllia or Elegance Coral is a large polyp stony (LPS) also called the Elegant Coral. A true beauty, its polyps are extended during the day showing off its impressive color-tipped tentacles. Under actinic lighting, the fluorescent qualities are beautiful with flourescent greens, and tentacles of either blue, orange, or purple-which vary between branched or round and bulbous shapes.

Placement: The Catalaphyllia Elegance Coral is moderate to maintain in the reef aquarium and makes an excellent coral choice for the beginner to advanced hobbyist. Provide plenty of space in the reef aquarium between it and neighboring corals as it expands to twice its usual size during the day and will sting other corals in to close proximity.Place this one in a soft substrate. The soft substrate is less likely to irritate the fleshy underside of the coral when compared to the rockwork. Clownfish may accept this coral as its host if no anemone is present. Ideal reef aquarium conditions for the Elegance Coral should include moderate lighting with moderate water movement.

Feeding:For continued good health, it will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water. It will benefit from additional food fed daily in the form of micro-plankton or brine shrimp.

  Red Sun Coral
Orange Tubastrea / Orange Sun Polyp Coral


Does well in low light conditions such as flourescent lighting or down low in a tank.
Description: Orange Tubastrea is one of the most photographed corals in the world. This is not without reason. The brilliant orange coral issues forth lovely yellow orange tentacles at night, and is a sight that almost defies description. The polyps are large and extend mostly at night, although well fed and/or trained polyps may emerge during the day as well, especially if food is present.

Placement: Tubastrea is not a stinging coral, and may be placed close to other corals. In terms of aquarium care, specimens should be positioned in areas of consistent water flow that will bring them available food when expanded.

Feeding: Due to the lack of zooxanthellae, this coral needs to be fed regularly, 2 or 3 times a week. However, it will depend upon the coral itself. (When the coral is hungry or senses food, it will extend its' feeding tenticles). Good food source for Tubastrea will be meaty foods, such as zoo-plankton (small crustaceans and fish larvae), mysis and brine shrimp, chopped seafood and excess pods. Many newly acquired specimens take some time before they begin to extend their tentacles to feed. In fact, they may often seem to refuse to open. Several diligent evenings of blowing food across the closed cups will usually entice a polyp to begin peeking out. Once started, there will rarely be occasion to have them not open in full glory in expectation of food. This coral will also benefit from the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements weekly to the water.

 Flaming Dendrophyllia Heads
Dendrophyllia fistula

Description: A very elusive coral sought out by reef keepers everywhere, this is one of the brightest corals available and can be kept by beginners through advanced aquarists, as long as attention is paid to proper feeding. Unlike Sun Polyps Dendrophyllia tend to open most of the day and the polyps can grow to over 1" across when closed and open to almost 2" across. They require moderate to high water currents and low reef lighting for proper health. It is important that adequate calcium and alkalinity levels are maintained to ensure proper skeletal growth. Use of Kalkwasser Mix or a calcium reactor will be of great benefit. The Dendro Coral is very similar to its close cousin the Sun Polyp Coral. They are the same genus but different species. They grow larger usually and have defining colors around the mouth and the white pattern on the tentacles is more prominent. It is a non-photosynthetic species so it will need to be fed regularly. A few individual pieces of mysid shrimp fed two or three times per week works well. These corals are very hardy and will grow quickly.
Diet and Feeding: Dendros shuld be fed once or twice a week. A good suggestion is to turn the pumps off, and feed a mixture of frozen mysis and frozen spirulina. Fend off the fish in the tank (secret weapon: turkey baster) to make sure the dendrophyllia get as much food as possible (for a healthier and more beautiful coral).
Placement: Place the Dendrophyllia along the bottom of the aquarium in a shaded area such as under a ledge, or in a cave. Make sure that moderate to high currents will be able to supply it with necessary nutrients and trace elements.
Approximate Purchase Size: Single Head 1/4" to 1"

Please Note: We have colonies available. If you want a mini colony just order the quantity of polyps you want and we can pick out a colony for you. You can also call to discuss what we have available.

Big Polyp Bright Red/Green Blastomussa Wellsi

Description:Blastomussa wellsi is a very hardy, non-aggressive coral. It is best placed in areas receiving low to moderate water movement and moderate lighting. Easy to feed with finely chopped marine foods, as well as frozen mysis, etc. The Blastomussa Coral is also referred to as the Blastomussa Pineapple Coral or the Swollen Brain Coral. It is a large polyp stony (LPS) coral and has many round swollen discs, that when open, resemble a mushroom anemone. They are relatively large fleshy polyps that cover the skeleton structure when expanded.
Hardiness: A very hardy coral, the Blastomussa Wellsi does well in an established reef aquarium. A low to moderate water current combined with low to moderate light level will give the Blastomussa Wellsi exactly what it needs to thrive. Considered a very peaceful coral, it will not sting or harm any coral that is located in close proximity.
Lighting: Prefers low to moderate lighting but also tolerates dim lighting fairly well. DO NOT expose the Blastomussa coral to intense lighting. If lighting is too intense, position with the polyps facing out rather than up and if the tank has intense lighting make sure the coral is shaded by another coral or rockwork.
Water Current: Prefers low to moderate water motion.
Diet Requirements:Its body contains the symbiotic algae zooxanthellae from which it receives the majority of its nutritional requirements through photosynthesis. Though not requiring additional food to maintain its health, the Blastomussa always will appreciate a feeding once in a while. Feed micro-plankton or finely chopped marine foods, as well as frozen mysis, etc.
Tank Positioning: Best positioning is usually at the bottom of the tank, in low water flow and in a moderately lit areas of the tank. Blastomussa may be positioned higher up in the tank in a dimly lit tank or if provided with shade from the intense lighting.

 Wellso Folded Brain Coral
Trachyphyllia radiata

Description:The Welsophyllia Brain Coral comes in both a metallic green and a metallic red variation. They have a flat round skeleton, much flatter and rounder than other Open Brain Corals. In the wild they are found on the sand and need to be placed accordingly in the display aquarium. To receive the best amount of lighting, Welsophyllia Brain Corals will swell up and pull themselves out of their hole in the sand. Surprisingly, they will also move around the sand bed quite a bit in this fashion. If placed on rockwork the rocks can damage the tender underside of the coral and may cause it to stress and possibly die.

Care must be taken when placing the coral in the aquarium so that nothing will damage the soft tissue. When placing them in the aquarium place them on the substrate or mid-way in the aquarium where they will receive direct light. Allow ample space between it and other corals, as it will sometimes sting its neighbor. Open Brain Corals can become shocked and potentially bleached (a rapid die-off of the algae in its tissue) after rapid changes in the intensity of its lighting. Always start a new brain coral in the bottom half of the tank and after 2 weeks you may slowly bring the coral up a small distance every week or so.

Most of the coral's nutrients come from the symbiotic algaes that benefit from this lighting, but supplemental feedings are also beneficial. Open Brain Corals will extend long feeder tentacles at night and should be target fed about an hour after the lighting is off. Though they generally prefer moderate to high flow, decrease the flow while feeding to give the coral a chance to feed. Some Trachyphyllia have been known to capture larger meaty foods including small fish and invertebrates

Diet Requirements:Though these corals are mostly photosynthetic, they benefit from the occasional bit of raw table shrimp, frozen mysis shrimp or silverside once a week.

 Aussie Multi-Color Ultra Doughnut Corals
Acanthophyllia desheysiana

Very rare morph's. No two are the same.

Description: The Doughnut Coral is a large polyp stony (LPS) coral and often referred to as the Goblet Coral or Meat Coral. The Doughnut Coral is a round solitary coral, one of the largest single-polyped corals found in nature today, and available in many different color forms. The Doughnut Coral is a favorite for beginners due to its hardy and undemanding nature. Of the varieties available, the doughnut coral is one of the easiest to maintain mostly because it is less sensitive to injury and not as susceptible to death from the stings of other corals. Only using low to moderate lighting is suggested, as well as lower water current to allow full expansion. Place them in the rock work rather than on the substrate, as they can be damaged if they get buried in sand. They are relatively slow growers so won't take over you tank any time soon, but they do respond really well when being fed.

Doughnut corals can also be confused with relatives in the Cynarina genus, as well as juveniles in the Lobophyllia genus. In their skeletal structure, the Lobophyllia corals are distinguished by being flatter and they have less pronounced 'teeth'. The Cynarina corals differ too by having large bubbly translucent polyps over the large, toothy ridges (septa) in their skeleton, that can often be seen through this film-like tissue. You can always tell the difference between a cynarina and a donut by the translucent tissue. Normally the large set of teeth can be seen through the tissue on the cynarinas. The teeth on the donuts are even and can't be seen through the meat.

Dougnut corals colors are many. We have seen green, red, orange, golden, pink, white, blue and I'm sure I've forgotten a few colors.. They can also have a combination of several of these colors.

Where found: Doughnut Corals are found in the Indo-Pacific Ocean from Tahiti to Madagascar and Australia, then to Japan and the Ryukyu Islands at depths from 10 - 131 feet.
Diet and location Requirements:It requires medium lighting combined with low water movement. For continued good health, it will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.

The Scolymia genus, like other large polyp stony (LPS) corals, have developed several feeding strategies. Through a symbiotic relationship with a marine algae, known as zooxanthellae, they receive some of their nutrients. They also capture planktonic organisms, food particles from the water column, and can absorb dissolved organic matter. Feed minced 1/4" pieces shrimp, cyclopeeze, pellet food, and mysis. Feed at night when tentacles are present. Feeding several times a week will help them grow faster, and keep them healthy. In a colony, remember each polyp is its own animal, so make sure you are feeding all the polyps.

Multi-Colored Button Coral, Cynarina
(Cynarina Lacrymalis) 


Description:The Cynarina Button Coral is a large polyp stony (LPS) coral. The Cynarina Button Coral is a round solitary coral, one of the largest single-polyped corals found in nature today, and available in many different color forms from pastel to bright and translucent to drab variations, Cynarina corals are unique specimens for the aquarium. Their range is from all over the Indian Ocean to the depths of the western Pacific all the way to the Red Sea.

The large, toothy skeletal "septa" can be seen clearly beneath the delicate tissue, and care should be taken when placing the coral to avoid damage to the flesh. The tissue may be entirely clear, allowing the underlying colors next to the skeleton to show through, or in some specimens the tissue is tinted green, red, orange, or patterned.

Sometimes, it is confused with its closest relative, Scolymia. We are selling here the beautiful Red/Pink Variety....While it is not an aggressive coral, it should be provided with adequate spacing between itself and other corals because it will expand to about twice its size. It is easy to maintain in the reef aquarium and makes an excellent choice for both the beginner or advanced reef aquarist.

In the Aquarium the Cynarina Button corals are hardy, unique additions to any reef tank. Because the large fleshy mantle can be damaged on rock, care must be taken to place only in an area where full extension won't be inhibited. This is a coral that doesn't need a lot of light or flow. On the other hand, they will eat a surprising amount of small chopped meaty foods like Krill or Chopped Prawn. They will extend polyps at night, not unlike those seen in scolymia.

Diet and location Requirements:It requires low to medium lighting combined with low water movement. For continued good health, it will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.Though they are photosynthetic, they will nocturnally extend polyps for feeding and will take meaty sustenance for nourishment.They should be fed small chopped meaty foods like Krill or Chopped Prawn at night.

Metallic Green Galaxea Coral
Galaxea fascicularis

Description: Metallic Green Galaxea coral is a vivid metallic green coral that grows rapidly and typically in a mound shape. They make a great low level inhabitant and can be placed on the sand. We are offering for sale both the ORA Galaxea which is a aquacultured coral and also larger ocean collected galaxea corals. The Galaxea Coral is a large polyp stony LPS) coral and often referred to as the Tooth, Star, Crystal, Starburst, Brittle, or Galaxy Coral. Its genus name, Galaxea, is derived from the Greek word galaxaios (milky), describing the polyp's milky-white tips. Caution is necessary when placing the Galaxea coral because it has the capability to sting nearby corals with its sweeper tentacles. A good rule of thumb is to keep neighboring corals 1 inch away for every 1 inch of galaxea coral. Therefore a 3 inch galaxea coral requires neighbors to be no closer than 3 inches from the Galaxea coral.
Diet and location Requirements: The Galaxea requires moderate to high lighting combined with good water movement within the aquarium. Though the Galaxea corals food source comes from photocythasis within its body creating symbiotic zooxanthellae algae from the light it collects, a feeding once or twice a week is always appreciated from any of the bottled micro-plankton foods or frozen mysis shrimp or brine shrimp.

  Yellow Scroll Coral
Turbinaria reniformis
 
Description:The yellow turbinaria reniformis, also known as Cup, Vase and Ruffled Ridge coral, grows in plate like whirls, with gigantic polyps and a brilliant shade of yellow. As it gets larger with proper current, it grows into multi-plated bowl like structures. Under optimal conditions this coral can grow extremely fast. A coral this yellow is very rare to come by.

Colonies under higher light will generally grow in a more "tightly rolled" or closed cup while lower-light colonies tend to be flatter. Scroll Corals (Turbinaria sp.) are the same genus as Pagoda Corals (Turbinaria peltata). However, they typically have a much different morphology. Scroll Corals will have a very delicate skeletal structure and many small polyps, where Pagoda Corals will have a more substantial skeleton with fewer, larger polyps. They are relatively hardy corals and are recommended for aquarists of all levels.

Diet and location Requirements:Place this coral in medium to high light and medium to high water movement. When positioning the coral in the aquarium be sure that it is lying in a way so as not to collect debris on the surface. If debris collects and begins to decay it can easily damage or destroy the coral by causing an infection. For its continued good health, it will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.It will benefit from additional food in the form of brine shrimp or plankton.

   Purple Flower Pot Coral
Goniopora sp.

Description:The Purple Flower Pot Coral is a large polyp stony (LPS) coral often referred to as Ball, Daisy, or Sunflower Coral. The flower names refer to its appearance when all of its polyps are opened. Once open, the Purple Flower Pot Coral is a gorgeous hard coral with free-flowing short polyps.
Diet and location Requirements: It is aggressive, and ample space should be provided between itself and other neighboring corals. Its polyps can extend far past its base into the reef aquarium, where they can sting other species of corals. Clownfish, will often play in its polyps if no anemone can be found in the reef aquarium. This may actually be detrimental to the coral. Goniopora sp. requires PERFECT water conditions, the proper trace elements and the habitat must match its requirements. In general, the Purple form of the Flower Pot Coral does better in an aquarium than other Gonipora spies, but it still would not be considered for beginers. The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within its body provides the majority of its nutritional requirements from photosynthesis. It should be fed phytoplankton or brine shrimp daily.

Aussie Giant Polyp Duncan Coral 
Duncanopsammia axifuga

Description:Duncanopsammia axifuga comes from the waters off of the Australian coast. Usually found in deeper water near sandy substrate, Duncanopsammia axifuga is very adaptable to lighting conditions. Coloration is light green on the tentacles, a pink to intense blue-green on the oral disc and bright green on the corallites. The size of polyps (including tentacles) can be up to approximately 4.5 cm across, while the corallites are approximately 1 cm to 1.5 cm across.
Growth:It is a fast grower given the right conditions, and usually develops new polyps directly adjacent to an existing one. As with all other LPS, maintaining calcium and alkalinity levels is necessary, while excess phosphates and nitrates will slow growth. A beautiful reef tank addition, multiple open polyps will often times totally shield the skeletal structure from view, particularly on large colonies.
Care Recommendations: Their care needs to include low to medium lighting; low to medium water flow. When placing your new coral in the aquarium, make sure the coral is secure , so that it will not be knocked over which may damage the skin and cause an infection. It is not an outwardly aggressive coral, but should be provided with plenty of space between itself and other corals because it can expand twice its size during the day.
Propagation is as easy as cutting the 'stem' of the coral to separate polyps, although as this coral grows upwards it will not attach itself to reef structures, a gell superglue or marine epoxy works best for this chore.
Diet and Feeding: While possessing zooxanthella and being capable of photosynthesis, this coral appreciates regular feeding with any meaty marine foods able to fit into the expanded polyp's mouth. I feed occasionally with chunks of prawn or mysis, which is very easy due to the adhesiveness and reactivity of the tentacles.
Placement: Duncanopsammia axifuga is a relatively unaggressive coral, incapable of producing sweeper tentacles, and generally comes out underneath when competing with other stony corals. It is best left with plenty of space to grow, as well as relatively unaggressive neighbours.

Super Colored Long Tentacle Plate Corals
Heliofungia actiniformis



Description:The Long Tentacle Plate Coral is a large polyp stony (LPS) coral often referred to as a Heliofungia Plate, Mushroom, or Disk Coral. With its long tentacles extended, it takes on the appearance of an anemone. It is a solitary, aggressive coral, and with its long tentacles can damage other corals that it comes in contact with. With placement in the aquarium, keep in mind that it will often inflate itself with water and expand to twice its size, with sweeper tentacles extending well beyond its base. It will do best on the bottom of a reef aquarium, preferably lying on a fine sandy substrate. The Long Tentacle Plate Coral is easy to maintain in the reef aquarium and makes an excellent candidate for the beginner reef aquarist.
Diet and location Requirements: It requires moderate lighting combined with moderate water movement within the aquarium. For continued good health, it will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water. It should be fed micro-plankton or brine shrimp.

Super Colored Short Tentacle Plate Coral

Description:The Fungia Plate/Disc Coral is a large polyp stony (LPS) coral, often referred to as a Disk, Mushroom, Chinaman, Short Tentacle Plate, or Tongue Coral. It comes in a variety of colors, some very bright. Its genus name, Fungia, was taken directly from the Latin "fungus" (mushroom), which describes its calcareous skeleton shape.
Diet and location Requirements: The Fungia Plate Coral lives a solitary life atop the sand bed. It requires low to moderate water currents and moderate reef lighting for proper health. It is important that proper calcium and alkalinity levels are maintained. Place the Fungia Plate Coral on the sand bed along the bottom of the aquarium. Be careful when handling it to avoid damaging the delicate tissue on the underside. When placing the fungia plate give it some room since it can move across the sand bed slowly.
Supplementing its diet with the addition of trace elements, marine snow, phytoplankton, and food for filter feeders will help to insure its continued good health. You may also feed it small pieces of squid or shrimp once a week by placing a piece on the mouth in the center of the coral.

Australian Red War Coral - Australian Multi Color War Coral
Favites pentagona


Description: This is the original War Coral, and has proven to be a fast grower for us. A BEAUTIFUL red with super neon green eyes. Purchased at a local swapmeet over a year ago, we have been growing colonies for over a year now. It requires moderate water currents and moderate to high reef lighting for proper health. It is important that proper calcium and alkalinity levels are maintained. Use of Kalkwasser Mix or a calcium reactor will be of great benefit.
Placement: War Coral is semi aggressive, expanding their sweeper tentacles at night, therefore it is important to leave space between them and neighbors in the reef aquarium.
Lighting: Medium to high lighting would serve this species well. Favia can be kept under high output fluorescent bulbs, but may benefit from more intense lighting. It will likely change its coloration depending on the lighting provided. Favia may require a longer acclimation period to intense lighting such as metal halides.
Location Requirements: We recommend keeping the coral in a relatively low flow area of the reef display. Too much flow could cause this particular species to become stressed and not extend fully.
Diet and Feeding: The War Coral will rely to a large extent on the products of their zooxanthellae, from the tanks lighting, however, in our experience, they also benefit from direct feeding. There are a variety of frozen fish foods available that make outstanding meals. We like to feed a mixture of meaty foods such as shrimp, fish, and squid with vitamin additives and highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFA). Cyclopeze also is a good choice. The size of the food is very important, it must be small enough that the polyp can fully ingest it.
Water Quality: War Corals are more tolerant of changes water quality making them an excellent coral for beginners. Though they are more tolerant, a stable environment is obviously better for the prolonged health & well being of these creatures.
Frag Difficulty: The War Coral is a fairly quick grower and will produce a significant amount of new growth every year. Fragments can be taken, and in our experience the easiest way is with a straight-edged razor blade. With the blade perpendicular from the edge of the coral, cut inwards about an inch. Repeat about an inch away from the first cut, then snap off the section between the two incisions. Even small frags tend to be extremely hardy and easy to acclimate.
Care Level: Maintenance for the War Coral is easy, making them excellent choices for the beginner to expert hobbyist.

 Australian Acanthastrea Coral
Acanthastrea echinata


Top Row: Red Acan, Green Acan Bottom Row: Rainbow Acan, Orange Crush Acan
Description: Acan corals are becoming a must for every reef keeper's tank. The color combinations these corals exhibit along with being very hardy corals is just too good to pass up. The variety of color patterns you can find Acanthastrea corals in are probably the most extensive of all the corals available in the world of reef keeping. This is the perfect must have coral for both the beginner aquarist to the most expert aquarist. The other facet of its popularity comes from the excellent growth rate and the endless possibilities to propagate Acanthastrea to everything from plugs to live rock has led to its huge poularity with reef keepers all over the word in the last few years.
Placement: Place the Acanthastrea Coral on an exposed rock along the bottom two-thirds of the aquarium where currents will be able to supply it with necessary nutrients and trace elements.
Lighting: Acanthastrea Coral species require lower lighting levels to really hold on to the incredible colors. If the lighting is to strong the multi-color beauties often times will turn to solid colors. It is best to always start at the lowest levels of the reef tank. If lighting is bright it is best to shade the coral with features in the reef tank.
Water Quality: Acanthastrea Coral species are more tolerant of changes water quality making them an excellent coral for beginners. Though they are more tolerant, a stable environment is obviously better for the prolonged health & well being of these creatures.
Diet and Feeding: Acanthastrea corals do contain zooxanthellae within their bodies to provide for some of their nutritional requirements through photosynthesis. This basically means that they have the ability to get some of their food from the lights on your tank. However for a much faster growing and happier coral it is recommended that you feed this coral every few days. Frozen coral preperations or grocery store raw shrimp ground up into very small pieces are excellent food choices for Acan's. If your Acan colony is new to your tank you can expect the Acan to not eat for several weeks, this is acceptable. Once it is settled in you will notice when it's ready to begin feeding.

Aussie Lightening Acanthastrea Hillae
Description: Acanthastrea Hillae is a rare species found far less frequently - both in the ocean and in the aquarium trade - than the more common A. echinata and A. lordhowensis . Acanthastrea is a fast-growing large polyp stony coral similar to Blastomussa corals. It is an easy species to keep in an aquarium and grows best under moderate lighting. Acanthastrea is often intensely colored, with mixtures of blue, red, green, orange, purple, and more. The soft tissue tends to be heavy with mottled coloring. Australian colonies are especially prized for their color. This coral relies heavily on photosynthesis for growth but will readily accept meaty foods such as mysis shrimp, baby brine shrimp and other similar items. The more often it is fed, the faster it will grow.
Placement: Place the Acanthastrea Coral on an exposed rock along the bottom two-thirds of the aquarium where currents will be able to supply it with necessary nutrients and trace elements.

Chalice Corals

Blue Measles Chalice Coral
Echinopora sp.

Description: When it comes to the coral crazies, one of the latest and most captivating additions to the marine aquarium hobby is the chalice coral. These corals come in vibrant colors and color combinations, can sell at low and high price points depending on rarity and growth rate, and are sought after by just about every dedicated coral collector around the world. The Echinophyllia genus is not only one of the easiest to keep of the Pectiniidae family, but the most colorful. In the wild they inhabit numerous habitats at various depths and water flow. Their adaptability to these multiple elements contributes to this being an easier coral to care for. In fact, if the edge of the coral is placed against any surface, like the glass of the aquarium, it will actually encrust onto it. Chalice corals grow thin and flat with many bumps, sometimes in a plating fashion, and sometimes encrusting.
Placement: Place the Chalice Coral on an exposed rock along the bottom two-thirds of the aquarium where currents will be able to supply it with necessary nutrients and trace elements. Although it is not crucial, Echinophora should be placed so that the plates are horizontal. Depending on the intensity of the light they may need to be placed low in the aquarium, or placed so that they get indirect Metal Halide light.
Lighting: Chalice corals do well in Medium lit tanks. If strong metal halides are used, keep the chalice corals in the bottom half of the tank.
Water Quality: The Chalice Coral is easy to care for, but good water quality is very important for growth and health.
Diet and Feeding: Like all stony corals, it gets much of its nutrition from the zooxanthellae that lives in it tissues, but can also be fed microplankton, cyclopeeze, mysid shrimp, oyster eggs and other similar sized foods. The growth rates of chalice corals are highly influenced by target feeding. This process involves the use of a pipette or similar device to administer coral food directly over each polyp location. Chalice are nocturnal feeders, but they will readily adapt to a daytime feeding schedule and this ability makes their presence in the tank during lighted hours that much more rewarding.

 WE WANT YOUR CORALS TO GROW - NOT JUST STAY ALIVE
Why Phytoplankton:
Phytoplankton is very important to marine life. It is the primary producers in the ocean. Crucial to the development and survival of most, if not all marine animals . But what is phytoplankton? It is just a fancy word for tiny floating plants (such as diatoms and dinoflagellates), which serve the same role in the food chains of the oceans as grass and shrubs serve on land; namely small things eat them. Many coral reef animals feed directly on phytoplankton. Some essential nutrients provided by phytoplankton cannot be synthesized by animals, and therefore are extremely important components of a healthy diet.
