The Hollywood Stunner ,Echinopora lamellosa is a moderately fast growing chalice with a purple base and bright neon green eyes. Very bright and fast growing. If your looking for a first chalice the Stunner is a good choice because it does not require high lighting and prefers to be kept in just a moderate water flow. This is a relatively easy coral to keep and propagate. The Echinophyllia genus is not only one of the easier chalice corals to keep, in the wild they inhabit numerous habitats at various depths and water flow. Their adaptability to these multiple elements contributes to this being an easy coral to care for. In fact, if the edge of the coral is placed against any surface, like the glass of the aquarium, it will actually encrust onto it. We are sure you will enjoy this one.

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.

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.
