The Rainbow Lordowensis Coral is an exquisite color variety of the popular “Acan” or Micromussa Lordhowensis Coral exploding with vivid colors. In addition to the festive celebration of color, the Rainbow Lordowensis Coral introduces beautiful architectural structure to the reef aquarium thank to its colonial growth habit. The Rainbow Lordowensis Coral can range in any incredible multicolor combination of red, green, blue, orange or grey. Lordhowensis Corals generally have large corallites (8-15mm) with small teeth or lobes on their septa, as well as well-developed columellae. In the wild, they're found mostly in shallow, turbid water habitats to about 20m, often in protected areas like lagoons, forming colonies up to several meters across.

In the reef aquarium, the Rainbow Lordowensis Coral is incredibly hardy and fast growing, tolerating a wide variety of conditions, including both low and moderate lighting and moderate water currents. Though tolerant of a wide range of aquarium conditions, the robust Lordhowensis Coral will do best in an established reef aquarium with stable conditions.

Be aware that Lordhowensis Corals are voracious nocturnal predators and competitively extrude mesenterial filaments and digest organisms within reach. Great care must be taken in determining the placement and distance between Lordhowensis colonies and other species of stony corals. Target feed minced mysis shrimp, enriched brine shrimp and smaller pieces of other meaty marine foods for best growth. The use of a quality protein skimmer helps maintain water quality and combat the effects of heavy feeding.

Target feed minced meaty foods and zooplankton for best growth and frag recovery time. The use of a quality protein skimmer helps maintain water quality and combat the effects heavy feeding can have on aquarium water quality.
