The Tyree Alien Eye Chalice was aquaired back in 2013 and have grown a number of mother colonies from the original acquired piece. We are now growing sustainable frags. With a Deep Purple textured base and bright Neon Green eyes. Frags of this Aquacultured chalice will be totally Healed.

Difficulty Moderate

Aggressiveness While usually relatively peaceful, all chalice corals are capable of stinging neighbouring corals with sweeper tentacles at night.

Water-flow This type of LPS coral does best with a moderate amount of flow. Provide just enough movement so that debris cannot collect on the coral's tissue.

Lighting This coral thrives in lower lighting (PAR 50-100). T5's, Metal Halides, or LED's can all grow Scolymia corals when the proper PAR levels are provided. We recommend a 14-20K color spectrum to keep the coloration of the coral.

Tank Recommendations A well-feed live rock/reef environment is what is needed for your Chalice coral , along with some fish for organic matter production. A mature tank is recommended. Place at the bottom of the tank.

Diet and Feeding In captivity, they do well in well-feed reef tanks. Like other LPS, they use their zooxanthellae for nutrition. Feed microplankton, cyclopeeze and other similar sized foods at night when feeder tentacles are present.
