Overview

This striking stunner boasts vibrant purple and green tentacles that retract when disturbed, but otherwise remain on full display all day and night. Duncanopsammia Coral colonies form via long, tubular corallites with brilliant neon green oral discs.

Native to the deeper waters of Western and Northern Australia and the South China Sea, Duncanopsammia Coral prefers to attach to solid objects in soft, sandy areas. Here, they readily propagate and often form a continuous mat of tentacles that conceal the overall shape of the underlying colony. In the home aquarium, place in low current areas with low to moderate light.

This coral is peaceful and does well with other non-aggressive corals and invertebrates, provided it has ample room to grow. Though they feed through photosynthesis via the symbiotic algae zooxanthellae that thrive on the colony, this coral also benefits from regular target feedings of meaty marine foods such as enriched mysis and brine shrimp.

It also benefits from the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water column.
