Mandarin Fireworks Clove Polyps are one of the very rare clove polyp soft corals we aquaculture. Beautiful growing, and low on demands! Like all of our polyps they are aquacultured specimens, many generations removed from the original wild starter colonies.

Aggressiveness They are a peaceful coral with the capability of being able to retract or deflate their polyps in response to a bothersome predator. They will not bother nearby corals since they do not have sweeper tentacles.

Waterflow We recommend a moderate level of water flow.

Lighting Mandarin Fireworks Clove Polyps require a moderate lighting level,(PAR 100-150), to maintain their color. T5's, Metal Halides, or LED's can all grow Daisy Polyps when the proper PAR levels are provided. We recommend a 14-20K color spectrum for best colouration of the coral.

Placement Mandarin Fireworks Clove Polyps may be placed anywhere which provides the required water flow and lighting level.

Diet and Feeding In captivity, the symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within their bodies provide the majority of their nutritional requirements through photosynthesis. We also recommend weekly feeding's of micro-plankton or other reef foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates. Good choices include Marine Snow, Artemia nauplii, and rotifer's. If your lighting is not as strong as desired, the feeding's will be more important since they will not be developing as much zooxanthellae on their own. Increase feeding's to twice a week in that case. For continued good health, we recommend the addition of iodine and other trace elements to the water. To help provide food for all your corals we strongly suggest putting up a refugium for your reef system. Make sure it has at least a 4" sand bed. It really helps your coral do well since it naturally provides correct food for your corals.

*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.
