The Rose Stylophora Coral has rounded branches with blunt ends that differentiate it from other closely related SPS corals. This variety is bright pink in coloration. The parent colony of these coral frags was collected in Fiji at a depth of about 25-35 feet and then quarantined and given a health inspection before being propagated.

The Stylophora Coral can live in a variety of lighting conditions, ranging from power compacts, VHO, T-5's up to the more intense metal halides. Alter their position in the aquarium depending on the lighting. In an aquarium lit by metal halides, Stylophora Corals should be kept in a mid to low position, and under other lighting they should be kept in a mid to high position. To bring out the most intense coloration of this coral, we recommend metal halide lighting. For continued good health, they will require the addition of a two part calcium and buffer supplement in order to maintain a calcium level of 400-450 ppm and dKH of 8-12. They will benefit from the addition of zooplankton.

LiveAquaria® Aquacultured Coral frags are mounted to a fired ceramic plug that can be affixed to live rock anywhere in the aquarium with gel super glue or epoxy.

Customer Testimonials

Chad S Evansville , IN
This is my first SPS and so far it is doing ok. The rose stylophora I received was a nice looking specimen. I'm looking forward to adding more rockwork and more SPS's as my tank grows.
