Overview

The Red and Green War Coral injects an impressive burst of color sure to command attention in any reef aquarium. The Red and Green War Coral represents a new generation of exotic color varieties that is transforming the reef hobby. The deep red coloration sets off the green eyes to dramatic effect sure to put any avid coral collector on a warpath to obtain this beauty.

The Red and Green War Coral is an exceptional color variety of Favites, a large polyp stony (LPS) coral often referred to as Moon, Pineapple, Brain, Closed Brain, Star, Worm, or Honeycomb Coral. Favites are the most common and prolific corals in the world and often share the same common names with their close relative, the corals from the genus Favia. Though very similar in appearance, the easiest way to distinguish corals from the Genus Favites from corals from the Genus Favia is to examine the corallites. The individual corallites of Favites corals share common walls that create a honeycomb appearance. In addition, the corallite walls of Favites corals are generally more raised and tend to be more uneven, accentuating the geometric appearance of the Favites corals.

The Red and Green War Coral is aggressive in temperament and will expand its sweeper tentacles at night well beyond the base. It is important to leave space between the Red and Green War Coral and neighbors in the reef aquarium. Care for the Red and Green War Coral is relatively easy, making it an excellent choice for the beginner to expert hobbyist. The Red and Green War Coral requires moderate lighting combined with medium water movement within the aquarium.

For continued good health, calcium, strontium, and other trace elements should be added to the water. The Red and Green War Coral will also benefit from the addition of supplemental food in the form of micro-plankton or brine shrimp, fed twice per week in the evening while its tentacles are visible.
