Our Aquacultured Purple-Lilac Tint Yellow Scroll Coral, turbinaria reniformis, has a purple-lilac tint to it along with large bright yellow polyps. A beautiful coral that has a plating and scrolling formation with a thick skeleton that will grow steadily providing alkalinity and calcium are maintained. The yellow turbinaria is also known as Cup, Vase and Ruffled Ridge coral. As it gets larger with proper current, it grows into multi-plated bowl like structures. Under optimal conditions this coral can grow extremely fast.

Difficulty Aquacultured Yellow Scroll Coral is a hardy and easy to care for coral making it a great beginner coral.

Aggressiveness It is a peaceful reef inhabitant and does not bother other corals that are placed in close proximity to it. However, it should still be provided with ample space away from other corals because it does grow quickly.

Water-flow The Yellow Pagoda requires a Moderate to Strong water flow but will tolerate lower levels

Lighting The Yellow Pagoda requires Medium to High light levels(PAR 250-350) but will tolerate lower levels. T5's, Metal Halides, or LED's can all grow Scroll Coral when the proper PAR levels are provided. We recommend a 14-20K color spectrum for best coloration.

Tank Recommendations A mature, well-fed live rock/reef environment is what is needed for your coral, along with some fish for organic matter production, and dissolved organics. 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. Polyps are generally retracted during the day but extend up to a 1/4" at night. Be sure to keep detritus from collecting on its surface as it will die in those areas. If debris collects and begins to decay it can easily damage or destroy the coral by causing an infection. Place Turbinaria from the substrate to mid-way up in the aquarium where they will receive the most direct light. All 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 acclimate carefully, over many weeks time if you are increasing the light intensity.

Diet and Feeding Feed regularly for faster growth with small meaty foods such chopped brine and mysis shrimp and cyclo

Reproduction Calcium and alkalinity levels are important for the Aquacultured Purple Lilac Tint Yellow Scroll Coral, Turbinaria reniformis.

These stresses can include poor water quality, harassment from tank mates or confined aquarium conditions. When stressed, these species can lose the ability to ward off infection and disease. Other species may be listed as Restricted because they have such specialized feeding requirements that is difficult recreate in a aquarium and may succumb to malnutrition.
