Difficulty Easy

Aggressiveness Peaceful

Water Flow This coral requires a moderate to strong level of water flow

Lighting This coral requires moderate lighting (PAR 200-350) (from 3 to 5 watts per gallon), to maintain its color. T5's, Metal Halides, or LED's can all grow sps when the proper levels are provided. This coral does best under lower kelvin lighting so we recommend a 14-20K color spectrum for both best health and coloration.

Placement Place this one on an exposed rock or ledge in the aquarium where it will receive direct flow and light.

Diet and Feeding This coral is photosynthetic. Meaning a good portion of its nutrition comes from the algae zooxanthellae, through the light they receive. We recommend providing supplemental food such as micro-plankton, baby brine shrimp, or foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates. Also provide the supplemental addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.

*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.
