Picture of Captive-grown Extra Large Green Duncan Coral

The Green Polyp Duncan Coral, (Duncanopsammia axifuga), is the perfect choice to for your first coral to watch grow. It is a very fast growing coral, is easy to take care of, and forgiving for both lighting and water quality issues. For many years seen around Australia only, this awesome coral entered our aquaculture facility in 2010. Many of our reef customers have picked up on the Duncan coral. The Duncan's unusual tentacles retract when disturbed, but otherwise remain extended during both the day and night. So when the lights are low, it still has its dazzling beauty. The Duncan Coral is easy to keep and will grow well in most every reef aquarium.

Difficulty An easy to keep, very hardy beginner coral.

Aggressiveness This is a peaceful coral, does well with other non-aggressive corals and invertebrates, provide room to grow.

Water-flow It prefers slow water flow.

Lighting It prefers low to moderate lighting levels (PAR 50-150). T5's, Metal Halides, or LED's can all grow fungia plate corals when the proper PAR levels are provided. We recommend a 14-20K color spectrum for best coloration.

Tank Recommendations Place in the bottom half of the reef aquarium, in low current areas with low to moderate lighting.

Diet and Feeding We recommend feeding meaty frozen marine foods such as brine shrimp weekly.
