Australia Mini Scolymia, Micromussa pacifica, are a relatively new species and they are some of the coolest corals coming from Western Australia. About the size of a quarter, they inflate up to around 2 inches. The mini Scolymia is packed full of colors that are right on par with their larger cousins. But the fact that they’re essentially miniatures means there is so much more appeal. The Australian Mini Scolymia Coral is fairly easy to maintain in the reef aquarium. It makes an excellent choice for both the beginner and advanced reef aquarist.

Difficulty A hardy and easy to care for coral making it a good beginner coral.

Aggressiveness A semi-aggressive coral, it should be provided with plenty of space between itself and other corals. It can expand to twice its size during the day.

Water-flow It requires slow water flow.

Lighting It requires lower lighting (PAR 50-75). 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 for best coloration.

Tank Recommendations For placement keep in mind that it will do best on the bottom of the reef aquarium, preferably lying on the bottom.

Diet and Feeding Feed meaty foods such as liquid micro-plankton, frozen mysis shrimp or brine shrimp.
