Overview

LiveAquaria® is proud to introduce the LiveAquaria® CCGC Aquacultured Orange Eye Leptastrea Coral as part of our ever-increasing offering of captive-bred and aquacultured aquatic life. This eye-catching color variety exhibits a bold autumn color palette featuring rust-red tentacles and bronze-orange "eyes." Propagated here at our Coral Farm & Aquatic Life Facility in Rhinelander, Wisconsin, our LiveAquaria® CCGC Aquacultured Orange Eye Leptastrea Coral offers reef aquarium hobbyists a fantastic aquacultured coral sure to inject incredible visual interest to any reef aquarium landscape thanks to its encrusting growth habit and vibrant coloration.

The LiveAquaria® CCGC Aquacultured Orange Eye Leptastrea Coral can thrive under moderate lighting conditions achieved by T-5 fluorescent, powerful LED, or the more intense metal halide light fixtures. For best care, it is imperative to maintain high water quality for the LiveAquaria® CCGC Aquacultured Orange Eye Leptastrea Coral ensuring proper pH, alkalinity, and calcium levels while keeping phosphate and nitrate levels as close to zero as possible. Along with proper lighting and water quality, the LiveAquaria® CCGC Aquacultured Orange Eye Leptastrea Coral will thrive when provided medium, intermittent water flow within the aquarium. This can be easily achieved with the addition of powerheads, wavemakers, or water circulation pumps.

The LiveAquaria® CCGC Aquacultured Orange Eye Leptastrea Coral is aggressive in temperament and will expand its sweeper tentacles at night well beyond the base. It is important to leave space between the LiveAquaria® CCGC Aquacultured Orange Eye Leptastrea and neighbors in the reef aquarium. For continued good health, the LiveAquaria® CCGC Aquacultured Orange Eye Leptastrea Coral will benefit from the addition of calcium, magnesium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.

The LiveAquaria® CCGC Aquacultured Orange Eye Leptastrea Coral satisfies the majority of its nutritional requirements by means of photosynthetic, symbiotic zooxanthellae algae hosted within its body. However, it will benefit from supplemental feedings of meaty food items such as micro-plankton or baby brine shrimp offered twice per week in the evening while its tentacles are visible.

The LiveAquaria® CCGC Aquacultured Orange Eye Leptastrea Coral is mounted on a fired ceramic plug that can be placed easily and securely in or between the rockwork in the reef aquarium.
