Overview

The intricate, bright pink birds nest formation of this SPS coral adds a striking splash of color to the well-lit reef aquarium. As the name implies, its branches are thicker and more tapered than the Thin Branch variety. The parent colony these coral frags was collected in Fiji at a depth of about 20-25 feet and then quarantined and given a health inspection before being propagated.

The Birdsnest Coral can live in a variety of lighting conditions, ranging from power compacts, VHO, T-5's up to the more intense metal halides. Alter their position in the aquarium depending on the lighting. In an aquarium lit by metal halides, Birdsnest Corals should be kept in a mid to low position, and under other lighting they should be kept in a mid to high position. To bring out the most intense coloration of this coral, we recommend metal halide lighting. For continued good health, they will require the addition of a two part calcium and buffer supplement in order to maintain a calcium level of 400-450 ppm and dKH of 8-12. They will benefit from the addition of zooplankton.

LiveAquaria® Aquacultured Coral frags are mounted to a fired ceramic plug that can be affixed to live rock anywhere in the aquarium with gel super glue or epoxy.
