LPS range in ease of keep from being some of the easiest corals to care for to some of the most demanding difficult corals to keep.

Fathead Dendros, Dendrophyllia fistula, are a non-photosynthentic (NPS) coral that stands in a class by itself! First, the Fathead Dendro’s colors will catch your eye. With a bright orange body, the fathead dendro provides a nice pop of color and a unique viewing experience thanks to the pale to nearly translucent tentacles. Even though the skeleton of the coral is rigid, a fully extended fathead dendro will sway in the current of your tank and provide nice motion to your tank. Second, Fathead Dendros are easily trained to come out during the day. Our experience with this coral is that most of them are naturally inclined to extend their polyps during daylight hours. That means no or minimal time spent feeding the coral in an attempt to train it to come out during the day.
