Overview

The Euphyllia Torch Coral is a large polyp stony (LPS) coral, often referred to as Trumpet Coral or Pom-Pom Coral. It has long and flowing polyps with single rounded tips which are visible throughout the day and night, hiding its branching skeletal base most of the time. It may be brown or green with yellow on the tips of its tentacles. The yellow will sometimes appear to glow under actinic lighting.

Provide plenty of room between the Euphyllia Torch Coral and other sessile animals, since at night, its sweeper tentacles can extend up to several inches from its base and sting other coral species. It is moderately difficult to maintain, but it is a popular coral that will thrive under proper conditions and excellent water quality parameters. Ideally, it needs to have moderate lighting combined with moderate water movement within the aquarium. Its aquatic home will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water for its continued good health. It will also benefit from additional food fed weekly in the form of micro-plankton or brine shrimp.

Approximate Purchase Size: Tiny: 1/2" to 1-1/2"; Small: 1-1/2" to 2-1/4"; Medium: 2-3/4" to 3-1/2"; Large: 4" to 5-1/4"

Customer Testimonials

Alex Reynaud Fresno , CA
I have found no other coral as enjoyable to have in the tank as the Torch. Place it low in the tank with medium to low flow so it can extend it fingers out without being blown around.

I've found that Torch Coral's are a most wonderful addition to a home reef environment. I've had great success and have been able to divide my torch coral many times over.
