Overview

Finally an aquacultured alternative of this peaceful natural beauty! Stylophora has rounded branches with blunt ends that differentiate it from other closely related SPS corals. This variety is a striking purple coloration.

The Purple Stylophora will thrive in a variety of lighting conditions, ranging from power compacts, VHO, T-5's up to the more intense metal halides. Alter their position in the aquarium depending on the lighting. For continued good health, they will require the addition of a two part calcium and buffer supplement in order to maintain a calcium level of 400-450 ppm and dKH of 8-12. They will also benefit from additional food fed weekly in the form of micro-plankton or foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates.

LiveAquaria® Aquacultured Coral frags are mounted to a fired ceramic plug that can be affixed to live rock anywhere in the aquarium with gel super glue or epoxy.

Approximate Purchase Size: Medium: 1" - 1-1/2"; XLarge: 2" - 3"
