LiveAquaria® is proud to announce the release of the LiveAquaria® Certified Captive Grown Orange Herpolitha Tongue Coral. It is a large polyp stony (LPS) coral often referred to as the Tongue, Mole, or Hairy Tongue Coral. The Orange Herpolitha Tongue Coral is a vibrant shade of orange and features slightly darker orange to red tentacles. Colonies of this species are often long and narrow, and arched or flat in profile, hence the common name "tongue."

The LiveAquaria® Certified Captive Grown Orange Herpolitha Tongue Coral is a solitary, aggressive coral with short tentacles which can inflict damage to other corals it meets. A preferable location would be on the bottom of the reef aquarium, lying on a fine sandy substrate, with adequate space between it and its neighbors. It is easy to maintain in the reef aquarium, which makes it an excellent candidate for the beginner through expert reef aquarist. It will require bright lighting combined with moderate water movement, and the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.

It will benefit from additional food fed weekly in the form of micro-plankton or brine shrimp.

Approximate Purchase Size: 1/2” to 1-1/2”
