Overview

The ORA® Aquacultured Blue Chalice Echinopora Coral is an exquisite chalice coral demonstrating vivid coloration and striking architectural form. Its wavy, plating habit is similar to Montipora capricornis and is sure to make an amazing focal point in any coral reef display. Keep in mind during placement that the ORA® Aquacultured Blue Chalice Echinopora Coral is fragile and care needs to be taken to protect it from damage.

Care of the ORA® Aquacultured Blue Chalice Echinopora Coral is fairly straightforward as long as you maintain pristine water conditions. Similar to other Chalice Corals, the ORA® Aquacultured Blue Chalice Echinopora Coral prefers horizontal placement in areas of moderate light and medium water movement. The ORA® Aquacultured Blue Chalice Echinopora Coral can readily adapt to different amounts of lighting and coral coloration varies significantly from pinkish tan, under sunlight, to lavender blue under higher Kelvin lighting.

The ORA® Aquacultured Blue Chalice Echinopora Coral produces sweeper tentacles at night that can harm more docile corals and invertebrates. Be sure to provide sufficient space between the Aquacultured ORA® Blue Chalice Echinopora Coral and other corals because of its semi-aggressive temperament.

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

The ORA® Aquacultured Blue Chalice Echinopora Coral is attached to an aragonite block and can be easily placed in holes or between the rockwork of the reef aquarium.
