Overview

LiveAquaria.com is proud to offer the Aquacultured CCGC Flowering Aussie Turbinaria. This attractive color morph of the highly sought after Turbinaria bifrons is propagated here at our Aquaculture Coral & Marine Life Facility. Sporting a pleasing shamrock green color, this aquacultured beauty features carnation pink polyps with cream-colored oral discs giving credence to it flowery name. In addition to its infrequent appearance in the aquarium trade, T. bifrons is also unique as it develops bifacial fronds with corallites on BOTH sides of its blade-like plates. Its upright growing habit injects magnificent architecture to any reef aquarium system.

The Flowering Aussie Turbinaria requires moderate aquarium lighting conditions achieved by T-5s, powerful LEDs or the more intense metal halides. To maximize growth rate, it is imperative to maintain high pH, alkalinity and calcium levels, as well as high water quality with phosphate and nitrate levels as close to zero as possible. Along with proper lighting and water quality, the Flowering Aussie Turbinaria will benefit from moderate water movement with strong intermittent water flow to prevent detritus from settling within its folds, best accomplished with a wavemaker and multiple powerheads.

The Flowering Aussie Turbinaria is a peaceful reef inhabitant and does not bother other neighboring corals. However, be sure to provide ample space away from other corals as it can grow quickly under ideal conditions. For its continued good health, it requires the addition of calcium, magnesium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.

The Flowering Aussie Turbinaria satisfies the majority of its nutritional requirements by means of photosynthetic, symbiotic zooxanthellae algae hosted within its body. It will benefit from supplemental feedings in the form of brine shrimp or plankton.

The Flowering Aussie Turbinaria is mounted on a fired ceramic plug that can be placed easily and securely in or between the rockwork in the reef aquarium.
