Your eyes aren't deceiving you - this really IS the newly discovered octocoral Asterospicularia from Indonesia, available for the very first time as sustainable aquacultured frag! Wouldn't you like to be one of the first reef hobbyists in the USA to bring this exclusive beauty home?

The Asterospicularia Coral is an octocoral (soft coral) that we are offering both the branching and the matting growth form. They are an interesting and peaceful corals that will add diversity to your reef aquarium. These corals grow in a similar manner to Xenia sp. and once established, grow rapidly.

Generally peaceful toward other corals in the reef aquarium, the Asterospicularia Coral will do best added to a well-established tank. It requires moderate lighting with a medium water current in the aquarium. Calcium, strontium, iodine, and other trace elements will need to be added to the water.

It contains the symbiotic algae zooxanthellae from which it receives the majority of its nutritional requirements through photosynthesis. It does not require additional food to maintain its health in the reef aquarium, but it will benefit from the addition of zooplankton.
