Overview

LiveAquaria® is proud to introduce the LiveAquaria® CCGC Aquacultured Atlantis Christmas Chalice Coral as part of our ever-increasing offering of captive-bred and aquacultured aquatic life. This amazing variety of Echinophyllia Chalice Coral is a celebration of festive coloration sure to add cheer to your reef aquarium landscape. Vibrant shades of red and pink coloration adds visual texture that beautifully complements the fleshy, heavily-tissued body. The bright, mint-green coloration of the "eyes" adds a playful element to the overall presentation. Propagated here at our Coral Farm & Aquatic Life Facility in Rhinelander, Wisconsin, our LiveAquaria® CCGC Aquacultured Atlantis Christmas Chalice Coral offers reef aquarium hobbyists a truly noteworthy new addition for their reef aquarium.

The LiveAquaria® CCGC Aquacultured Atlantis Christmas Chalice Coral can thrive under low to 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 Atlantis Christmas Chalice 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 Atlantis Christmas Chalice 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.

The LiveAquaria® CCGC Aquacultured Atlantis Christmas Chalice Coral has a semi-aggressive temperament and will expand its sweeper tentacles at night. Therefore, it is important to maintain ample space between the LiveAquaria® CCGC Aquacultured Atlantis Christmas Chalice Coral and neighboring corals in your reef aquarium. For continued good health, the LiveAquaria® CCGC Aquacultured Atlantis Christmas Chalice Coral will benefit from the addition of calcium, magnesium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.

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