Overview

The Mummy Eye Chalice Coral is sure to scare up some attention with its unearthly beauty. With piercing orange-red eyes that stare hauntingly from beyond a heavily tissued body, it is easy to see why this highly desirable color morph is referred to as "Mummy Eye." The deep green coloration of the textured, fleshy body adds amazing contrast that eerily animates the eyes of this coral. Whether an avid Chalice Coral enthusiast or a reef aquarium hobbyist wanting an exotic conversation piece, you'll soon find yourself powerless to resist the collector's curse once you acquire this spectacular Mummy Eye Chalice Coral.

Care of the Mummy Eye Chalice Coral is fairly straightforward as long as you maintain pristine water conditions. Similar to other Chalice Corals, the Mummy Eye Chalice Coral prefers horizontal placement in areas of low to moderate light and water movement. Keep in mind that the Mummy Eye Chalice Coral can readily adapt to different amounts of lighting. Typically, a slow growing coral, the species is known to exhibit both an encrusting habit when placed near aquarium glass as well as a plating habit when housed in open areas.

The Mummy Eye Chalice Coral can produce sweeper tentacles that can harm more docile corals and invertebrates. Be sure to provide sufficient space between the Mummy Eye Chalice Coral and other corals because of its semi-aggressive temperament.

The Mummy Eye Chalice Coral feeds mostly at night. Though feeding is not necessary, it benefits from small pieces of meaty marine food, such as baby brine shrimp, CYCLOP-EEZE®, or foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates. For continued good health, the Mummy Eye Chalice Coral benefits from the addition of calcium, strontium, iodine, magnesium and trace elements to the water column.
