Blue Sympodium Coral is a soft coral currently very popular among reef hobbyists that is stunning in appearance.. A somewhat rare coral that makes sporadic appearances in the reef aquarium hobby. Its popularity comes from the magnificent coloration the Blue Sympodium Polyp makes. It is an encrusting soft coral with polyps that resemble Xenia, Anthellia, or Clove Polyps in appearance. This Blue Sympodium has navy blue centers and jade green on the surrounding fringe. The end result is a "floral" look guaranteed to catch the eye of all the aquarium enthusiasts visiting you.

Aggressiveness Blue Sympodium is peaceful and is usually fine within proximity to other corals that are peaceful. They will not bother nearby corals since they do not have sweeper tentacles.

Water Flow and Lighting They prefer a moderate level of water movement, and a moderate to high lighting level. Lighting can be Power compacts, T5's, LED's or even Metal Halides. Any lighting will work as long as the proper level of light is provided. If a Par meter is available the appropriate lighting level is anywhere from a Par 200 all the way to a Par 300. Which is a wide range of acceptability. For lighting spectrum use between a 14-20K color spectrum for your bulbs for best coloration.

Placement Blue Sympodium Coral may be placed anywhere which provides the required moderate water flow and moderate lighting level.

Diet and Feeding In captivity, the Blue Sympodium will generally use bright light and zooxanthellae as their main food source, although Marine Snow, Artemia nauplii, rotifers and other fine particulate foods should supplemented. If your lighting is weak, the feedings will be more important since they will not be developing as much zooxanthellae on their own. A refugium with at least a 4" sand bed is strongly suggested to help provide for all your corals.
