Overview

Give your reef aquarium star treatment with the coral that started the Cyphastrea craze. The Aquacultured Meteor Shower Cyphastrea Coral propagated here at our LiveAquaria® Coral Farm & Aquatic Life Facility sports a gorgeous teal-green body color with contrasting red-orange colored corallites. While initially forming relatively tight clusters, the corallites gradually drift; taking on the appearance of meteors streaking across space as this encrusting coral matures, thus living up its celestial namesake. Its striking coloration, moderate care level, and fast-growing nature makes our Aquacultured Meteor Shower Cyphastrea Coral a great choice for all reef-keepers and coral collectors.

The Meteor Shower Cyphastrea Coral is moderately easy to care for, requiring moderate to strong aquarium water movement combined with moderate lighting conditions achieved by T-5s, powerful LEDs or the more intense metal halides. It is important to leave ample space between the Aquacultured Meteor Shower Cyphastrea Coral and neighboring corals in mixed reef aquariums since it can grow rather fast under ideal conditions.

The Meteor Shower Cyphastrea Coral 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 micro-plankton or foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates. For its continued good health, it requires the addition of calcium, magnesium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.

The Aquacultured Meteor Shower Cyphastrea Coral is mounted on a fired ceramic plug that can be placed easily and securely in or between the rockwork in the reef aquarium.

Approximate Purchase Size: 3/4" to 1-1/4".
