Metallic Green Large Polyp Duncan Coral, Captive-grown

The Green Large Polyp Duncan Coral in prior years were uncommon to reef tanks in the United States. This more unusual example of an Aussie Duncan coral is now captive-grown in our Coral Farm. Our Captive-grown Large Polyp Duncan Corals came from a single larger polyp Duncan colony we received back in 2009 in an Australia shipment. This unusual coral has a metallic green color on the oral disc, a neon green on its corallites, and very unusual markings. The Large Polyp's unusual tentacles will retract when disturbed, but otherwise will remain extended both during the day and night. The Duncan Coral is easy to keep and will grow well in most every reef aquarium.

Difficulty An easy to keep, 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 mysis shrimp and brine shrimp.

*Guarantee Restriction: All of our livestock are guaranteed. However for one or more of these species, they may be marked with a guarantee restriction. If it does, it means the specific animal may not handle stress from environmental conditions well. 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.
