Care of the ORA® Aquacultured Mummy Eye Chalice Coral is fairly straightforward as long as you maintain pristine water conditions. Chalice Corals prefer horizontal placement in areas of low to moderate light and medium water movement. Keep in mind that Chalice Corals can readily adapt to different amounts of lighting achieved by T-5s, powerful LEDs or the more intense metal halides. Typically, this slow-growing coral species is known to exhibit both an encrusting habit when placed near aquarium glass, as well as a plating habit when housed in open areas.
The ORA® Aquacultured Mummy Eye Chalice Coral feeds mostly at night. Though feeding is not necessary, it benefits from small pieces of meaty marine food, such as baby brine shrimp, CYCLOP-EEZE®, or foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates. For continued good health, the ORA® Aquacultured Mummy Eye Chalice Coral benefits from the addition of calcium, strontium, iodine, magnesium and trace elements to the water column.
