The LiveAquaria® CCGC Aquacultured Autumn Echinata 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 benefit from medium, intermittent water flow within the aquarium. This can be easily achieved with the addition of powerheads, wavemakers, or water circulation pumps.
Be aware that the LiveAquaria® CCGC Aquacultured Autumn Echinata Coral is aggressive in temperament and is a voracious nocturnal predator. It will competitively extrude its mesenterial filaments and digest organisms within reach. Great care must be taken to ensure proper distance between your LiveAquaria® CCGC Aquacultured Autumn Echinata Coral and neighboring corals in your reef aquarium, making sure there is at least several inches of space between the two corals. For continued good health, the LiveAquaria® CCGC Aquacultured Autumn Echinata Coral will benefit from the addition of calcium, magnesium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.
The LiveAquaria® CCGC Aquacultured Autumn Echinata Coral satisfies a portion of its nutritional requirements by means of photosynthetic, symbiotic zooxanthellae algae hosted within its body. To ensure proper nutrition, target feed your LiveAquaria® CCGC Aquacultured Autumn Echinata Coral minced meaty foods, mysis shrimp, and zooplankton. The use of a quality protein skimmer helps maintain water quality and combat the effects of heavy feeding.
The LiveAquaria® CCGC Aquacultured Autumn Echinata Coral is mounted on a fired ceramic plug that can be placed easily and securely in or between the rockwork in the reef aquarium.
