Overview

LiveAquaria.com is proud to offer the Aquacultured CCGC Long Polyp Turbinaria. This attractive color morph of the highly sought after Turbinaria heronensis is now being propagated here at our Aquaculture Coral & Aquatic Life Facility. Sporting pleasing color combinations of green’s, pink’s, and tan’s this aquacultured beauty is sure to a favorite in your aquarium.

The Long Polyp 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 Long Polyp Turbinaria will benefit from moderate water movement with strong intermittent water flow to prevent detritus from settling within the coral, best accomplished with a wave maker and multiple powerheads.

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