Overview

Sometimes referred to as Broccoli or Tree Corals, Litophyton corals are soft corals with moderate care requirements. Litophtyon corals provide great aesthetics with their tall and flexible shape that offers movement and interest to any reef aquarium.

Litophtyon corals are semi-aggressive and require thoughtful placement ensuring ample space between other corals in the reef aquarium. Some can produce toxins which are harmful to other reef inhabitants. It is moderately difficult to maintain in the reef aquarium and will require medium to high lighting achieved by T-5s, powerful LEDs or the more intense metal halides combined with moderate to strong water movement within the aquarium. For continued good health, it will also require the addition of iodine, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.

Symbiotic zooxanthellae algae hosted within their body provide some of the nutritional needs of Litophtyon corals via the light driven process of photosynthesis. However, Litophtyon corals require feedings of food such as micro-plankton, baby brine shrimp, or foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates. These should be regularly blown across the polyps.

For continued good health, Litophyton Corals will also require the addition of iodine and other trace elements to the water.
