What a treat to offer this aquacultured alternative to an old aquarium favorite. The LiveAquaria® CCGC Aquacultured Strawberry Shortcake Acropora Coral sports beautiful hues of pink & green that will add a bounty of color to any aquarium.
The growth rate of the Strawberry Shortcake Acropora is faster than some Acropora’s and adapts well to a variety of lighting conditions. It can also be cultured and grown into a new colony from living fragments or broken pieces, if conditions are ideal. The Strawberry Shortcake Acropora prefers intense lighting to maintain good coloration combined with a strong water current within the aquarium.
They will thrive in a variety of lighting conditions, ranging from power compacts, VHO, T-5's up to the more intense metal halides. For continued good health, it will require the addition of supplemental calcium, magnesium, strontium, Iodine and other trace elements to the water.
It 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.
