Lighting and Water Flow Requirements: Acropora and other SPS corals require an established reef aquarium with moderate to high water flow and bright lighting (PAR 300-450) to maintain good color. Either T5's, Metal Halides, or LED's can all grow acropora when the proper Light level (PAR level) are provided. We recommend a 14-20K color spectrum for best coloration with a high light level usually from metal halides. Place your Acropora on an exposed rock or ledge in the reef aquarium where it will receive direct flow and light.

Diet and Feeding Acropora corals take in the majority of their nutritional requirements from photosynthesis, but definitely benefit from bi weekly additions of Algagen Oyster Delightâ„¢. Target feeding gets the corals fed using less food while keeping your nitrates and phosphates lower.

Water Chemistry Proper calcium levels(420-440 ppm), alkalinity levels(8-9.5 dkh - run it 7-8 if you are carbon dosing) , and magnesium levels (1260-1350 ppm) all need to be maintained. Raise your magnesium levels little by little over a period of time till you reach between 1400-1600 ppm. This helps combat algae outbreaks. The CA and Alk levels will change as you raise your magnesium level so you need to keep both the CA and Alk levels in line as you raise the Mg.. Finaly try to keep nitrates low, below 10 ppm and phosphates below .10 ppm. Best method is through water changes and phosphate media to keep phosphates low.
