Live Corals: LPS Corals

 
   

LPS (Large Polyp Stony) corals are generally larger calcareous corals with large fleshy polyps. Almost all LPS corals are wild caught as they are the most difficult corals to propagate in captivity. They range in ease of keep from being some of the easiest to some of the most difficult of corals to keep. Some LPS corals also have long tentacles called sweeper tentacles which are longer than the normal tentacles and are used to 'clear' other corals away from their immediate vicinity.

We Pamper our corals! When you buy corals from Quality Marine Life you can be assured you will buy live aquarium corals that have been pampered and properly cared for. Like any coral that has been collected and shipped halfway across the globe, ours arrive, understandably, in need of some rejuvenation. Which is why we do our best to downright pamper them during their stay. Whether you are interested in Live Acropora corals, Aquacultured corals, SPS corals, LPS corals, mushroom corals, polyping corals, zooanthus corals, leather corals, or any other soft coral, their treatment begins with a slow-drip acclimation to equalize temperature, ph and alkalinity. Then they are placed in our holding tanks where the water quality is perfect. High current wave action cleans any built up slime coat and loosens the sand and bacteria from their long journey. Their polyps begin to extend and reach out to the available food and light.

For lighting our corals are placed in appropriate lighting depending upon there needs. For low light corals, they are placed under Power Compactammers. On corals that need extreme lighting, we use only the best 1000-watt, 6,700K metal halide lighting to which will awaken the sleeping polyps and color enhancing zooxanthellae. Under these conditions our corals thrive and nourish, until we send them on their way by picking with the most stringent quality controls, and packaginging them with the utmost care, and shipping by overnight carrier, to your door. All of this to ensure that each coral sold will reach your hands in the best condition possible.

Elegance Coral
Catalaphyllia jardinei
Description:The Catalaphyllia or Elegance Coral is a large polyp stony (LPS) also called the Elegant Coral. A true beauty, its polyps are extended during the day showing off its impressive color-tipped tentacles. Under actinic lighting, the fluorescent qualities are beautiful with flourescent greens, and tentacles of either blue, orange, or purple-which vary between branched or round and bulbous shapes.

Placement: The Catalaphyllia Elegance Coral is moderate to maintain in the reef aquarium and makes an excellent coral choice for the beginner to advanced hobbyist. Provide plenty of space in the reef aquarium between it and neighboring corals as it expands to twice its usual size during the day and will sting other corals in to close proximity.Place this one in a soft substrate. The soft substrate is less likely to irritate the fleshy underside of the coral when compared to the rockwork. Clownfish may accept this coral as its host if no anemone is present. Ideal reef aquarium conditions for the Elegance Coral should include moderate lighting with moderate water movement.

Feeding:For continued good health, it will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water. It will benefit from additional food fed daily in the form of micro-plankton or brine shrimp.

  Red Sun Coral
Orange Tubastrea / Red Sun Polyps


Does not require extreme lighting.
Does well under T5 or power compact aquarium lighting..
Description: Red Sun Polyps also called Orange Sun Polyps or Sun Coral are one of the most photographed corals in the world. This is not without reason. The brilliant orange coral issues forth lovely yellow orange tentacles at night, and is a sight that almost defies description. The polyps are large and extend mostly at night, although polyps may emerge during the day as well, especially if food is present.

Placement: Tubastrea is not a stinging coral, and may be placed close to other corals. In terms of aquarium care, specimens should be positioned in areas of consistent water flow that will bring them available food when expanded.

Feeding: Good food source for Sun Polyps will be meaty foods, such as Algagen's Phycopure Reef Blend, any zoo-plankton food (small crustaceans and fish larvae), Two Little Fishes and Sea Chem make good blends, and also frozen mysis and brine shrimp work well. Many newly acquired specimens take some time before they begin to extend their tentacles to feed. In fact, they may often seem to refuse to open. Several diligent evenings of blowing food across the closed cups will usually entice a polyp to begin peeking out. Once started, there will rarely be occasion to have them not open in full glory in expectation of food. Like all LPS corals the Sun Polyp coral will also benefit from the occassional addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.

 Flaming Dendrophyllia Heads
Dendrophyllia fistula

Description: A very elusive coral sought out by reef keepers everywhere, this is one of the brightest corals available and can be kept by beginners through advanced aquarists, as long as attention is paid to proper feeding. Unlike Sun Polyps Dendrophyllia tend to open most of the day and the polyps can grow to over 1" across when closed and open to almost 2" across. They require moderate to high water currents and low reef lighting for proper health. It is important that adequate calcium and alkalinity levels are maintained to ensure proper skeletal growth. Use of Kalkwasser Mix or a calcium reactor will be of great benefit. The Dendro Coral is very similar to its close cousin the Sun Polyp Coral. They are the same genus but different species. They grow larger usually and have defining colors around the mouth and the white pattern on the tentacles is more prominent. It is a non-photosynthetic species so it will need to be fed regularly. A few individual pieces of mysid shrimp fed two or three times per week works well. These corals are very hardy and will grow quickly.
Diet and Feeding: Dendros shuld be fed once or twice a week. A good suggestion is to turn the pumps off, and feed a mixture of frozen mysis and frozen spirulina. Fend off the fish in the tank (secret weapon: turkey baster) to make sure the dendrophyllia get as much food as possible (for a healthier and more beautiful coral).
Placement: Place the Dendrophyllia along the bottom of the aquarium in a shaded area such as under a ledge, or in a cave. Make sure that moderate to high currents will be able to supply it with necessary nutrients and trace elements.
Approximate Purchase Size: Single Head 1/2" to 1"

Aussie Bright Red/Green
Blastomussa Merletti Mounted Frag

Description:The Blastomussa Coral is also referred to as a Blastomussa Pineapple Coral or the Swollen Brain Coral. It is a large polyp stony (LPS) coral and has many round swollen discs, that when open, resemble a mushroom anemone. They are relatively large fleshy polyps that cover the skeleton structure when expanded.
Hardiness: Being a moderately hardy coral, the Blastomussa Coral does well in an established reef aquarium. A low water current combined with a moderate light level will make a wonderful home for this species. It is considered a peaceful coral, not moving in on tank mates that are located in close proximity to it.
Lighting: Prefers moderate lighting but will tolerate dim lighting fairly well. These corals should not be exposed to intense lighting. If lighting is too intense, they should be positioned with the polyps facing out rather than up or should be shaded by another coral or rock.
Water Current: Prefer low to moderate water motion.
Diet Requirements:Its body contains the symbiotic algae zooxanthellae from which it receives the majority of its nutritional requirements through photosynthesis. It does not require additional food to maintain its health in the reef aquarium, but it will feed on micro-plankton or foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates.
Tank Positioning: Best positioning is usually at the bottom of the tank, in low water flow and in a moderately lit area of the tank. They may be positioned higher up in the tank in a dimly lit tank or if provided with some shade from intense lighting.

 Metallic Green Flat Brain
Wellsophylia Radiata

Description:The Metallic Green Welsophyllia Brain Coral comes in several different bright green color variations. They have a flat round skeleton, much flatter and rounder than other Open Brain Corals. In the wild they are found on the sand and need to be placed accordingly in the display aquarium. To receive the best amount of lighting, Metallic Green Welsophyllia Brain Corals will swell up and pull themselves out of their hole in the sand. Surprisingly, they will also move around the sand bed quite a bit in this fashion. If placed on rockwork the rocks can damage the tender underside of the coral and may cause it to stress and possibly die.

Care must be taken when placing the coral in the aquarium so that nothing will damage the soft tissue. When placing them in the aquarium place them on the substrate or mid-way in the aquarium where they will receive tdirect light. Allow ample space between it and other corals, as it will sometimes sting its neighbors. Open Brain Corals can become shocked and potentially bleached (a rapid die-off of the algae in its tissue) after rapid changes in the intensity of its lighting. Always acclimate carefully, especially if increasing the light intensity.

Most of the coral's nutrients come from the symbiotic algaes that benefit from this lighting, but supplemental feedings are also beneficial. Open Brain Corals will extend long feeder tentacles at night and should be target fed about an hour after the lighting is off. Though they generally prefer moderate to high flow, decrease the flow while feeding to give the coral a chance to feed. Some Trachyphyllia have been known to capture larger meaty foods including small fish and invertebrates

Diet Requirements:Though these corals are mostly photosynthetic, they benefit from the occasional bit of raw table shrimp, frozen mysis shrimp or silverside once a week.

 Australian Fancy Doughnut Corals
Acanthophyllia desheysiana

Very rare morph's. No two are the same.

Description: Fancy Doughnut Corals, are the top picks in the industry and are very difficult to get a hold of. When they are found they are put aside and sold as Ultra Fancy Doughnut Corals. Customers who purchase these beauties when available are recieving one of a kind show pieces for their reef tank.

The Scolymia sp. Doughnut Coral is a large polyp stony (LPS) coral and often referred to as the Goblet Coral or Meat Coral. The Scolymia aka Doughnut Coral is a round solitary coral, one of the largest single-polyped corals found in nature today, and available in many different color forms. The Fancy Doughnut Coral is a favorite for beginners due to its hardy and undemanding nature. Of the Scolymia corals, it is the easiest to maintain mostly because it is less sensitive to injury and not as susceptible to death from the stings of other corals. Only using low to moderate lighting is suggested, as well as lower water current to allow full expansion. Place them in the rock work rather than on the substrate, as they can be damaged if they get buried in sand. They are relatively slow growers so won't take over you tank anytime soon, but they do respond really well when being fed.

Scolymia corals can also be confused with relatives in the Cynarina genus, as well as juveniles in the Lobophyllia genus. In their skeletal structure, the Lobophyllia corals are distinguished by being flatter and they have less pronounced 'teeth'. The Cynarina corals differ too by having large bubbly translucent polyps over the large, toothy ridges (septa) in their skeleton, that can often be seen through this film-like tissue. You can always tell the difference between a cynarina and a donut by the translucent tissue. Normally the large set of teeth can be seen through the tissue on the cynarinas. The teeth on the donuts are even and can't be seen through the meat.

Scolymia corals colors are generally green, red, cream, or blue. They can also have a mottling of several of these colors.

Where found: The Scolymia genus inhabit the Pacific as well as the Atlantic. They are found in the Indo-Pacific Ocean from Tahiti to Madagascar and Australia, then to Japan and the Ryukyu Islands at depths from 10 - 131 feet (3 - 40 m). In the Atlantic, some species can be found on the Western Atlantic coasts of the USA and Canada, and in the Tropical Atlantic, namely, the Gulf of Mexico, East Brazilian Shelf, and the Caribbean at depths down to 98 feet (30 m).

Diet and location Requirements:It requires medium lighting combined with low water movement. For continued good health, it will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.

The Scolymia genus, like other large polyp stony (LPS) corals, have developed several feeding strategies. Through a symbiotic relationship with a marine algae, known as zooxanthellae, they receive some of their nutrients. They also capture planktonic organisms, food particles from the water column, and can absorb dissolved organic matter. Feed minced 1/4" pieces shrimp, cyclopeeze, pellet food, and mysis. Feed at night when tentacles are present. Feeding several times a week will help them grow faster, and keep them healthy. In a colony, remember each polyp is its own animal, so make sure you are feeding all the polyps.

Colored Button Coral, Cynarina
(Cynarina Lacrymalis) 


Description:The Cynarina Button Coral is a large polyp stony (LPS) coral. The Cynarina Button Coral is a round solitary coral, one of the largest single-polyped corals found in nature today, and available in many different color forms from pastel to bright and translucent to drab variations, Cynarina corals are unique specimens for the aquarium. Their range is from all over the Indian Ocean to the depths of the western Pacific all the way to the Red Sea.

The large, toothy skeletal "septa" can be seen clearly beneath the delicate tissue, and care should be taken when placing the coral to avoid damage to the flesh. The tissue may be entirely clear, allowing the underlying colors next to the skeleton to show through, or in some specimens the tissue is tinted green, red, orange, or patterned.

Sometimes, it is confused with its closest relative, Scolymia. We are selling here the beautiful Red/Pink Variety....While it is not an aggressive coral, it should be provided with adequate spacing between itself and other corals because it will expand to about twice its size. It is easy to maintain in the reef aquarium and makes an excellent choice for both the beginner or advanced reef aquarist.

In the Aquarium the Cynarina Button corals are hardy, unique additions to any reef tank. Because the large fleshy mantle can be damaged on rock, care must be taken to place only in an area where full extension won't be inhibited. This is a coral that doesn't need a lot of light or flow. On the other hand, they will eat a surprising amount of small chopped meaty foods like Krill or Chopped Prawn. They will extend polyps at night, not unlike those seen in scolymia.

Diet and location Requirements:It requires low to medium lighting combined with low water movement. For continued good health, it will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.Though they are photosynthetic, they will nocturnally extend polyps for feeding and will take meaty sustenance for nourishment.They should be fed small chopped meaty foods like Krill or Chopped Prawn at night.

  Yellow Scroll Coral
Turbinaria reniformis
 
Description:The yellow turbinaria reniformis, also known as Cup, Vase and Ruffled Ridge coral, grows in plate like whirls, with gigantic polyps and a brilliant shade of yellow. As it gets larger with proper current, it grows into multi-plated bowl like structures. Under optimal conditions this coral can grow extremely fast. A coral this yellow is very rare to come by.

Colonies under higher light will generally grow in a more "tightly rolled" or closed cup while lower-light colonies tend to be flatter. Scroll Corals (Turbinaria sp.) are the same genus as Pagoda Corals (Turbinaria peltata). However, they typically have a much different morphology. Scroll Corals will have a very delicate skeletal structure and many small polyps, where Pagoda Corals will have a more substantial skeleton with fewer, larger polyps. They are relatively hardy corals and are recommended for aquarists of all levels.

Diet and location Requirements:Place this coral in medium to high light and medium to high water movement. When positioning the coral in the aquarium be sure that it is lying in a way so as not to collect debris on the surface. If debris collects and begins to decay it can easily damage or destroy the coral by causing an infection. For its continued good health, it will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.It will benefit from additional food in the form of brine shrimp or plankton.

Description:The Purple Flower Pot Coral is a large polyp stony (LPS) coral often referred to as Ball, Daisy, or Sunflower Coral. The flower names refer to its appearance when all of its polyps are opened. Once open, the Purple Flower Pot Coral is a gorgeous hard coral with free-flowing short polyps.
Diet and location Requirements: It is aggressive, and ample space should be provided between itself and other neighboring corals. Its polyps can extend far past its base into the reef aquarium, where they can sting other species of corals. Clownfish, will often play in its polyps if no anemone can be found in the reef aquarium. This may actually be detrimental to the coral. Goniopora sp. requires PERFECT water conditions, the proper trace elements and the habitat must match its requirements. In general, the Purple form of the Flower Pot Coral does better in an aquarium than other Gonipora spies, but it still would not be considered for beginers. The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within its body provides the majority of its nutritional requirements from photosynthesis. It should be fed phytoplankton or brine shrimp daily.

Aquacultured Aussie
Fat Boy Green Polyp Duncan Frags
 
Duncanopsammia axifuga

Description:Duncanopsammia axifuga comes from the waters off of the Australian coast. Usually found in deeper water near sandy substrate, Duncanopsammia axifuga is very adaptable to lighting conditions. Coloration is light green on the tentacles, a pink to intense blue-green on the oral disc and bright green on the corallites. The size of polyps (including tentacles) can be up to approximately 4.5 cm across, while the corallites are approximately 1 cm to 1.5 cm across.
Growth:It is a fast grower given the right conditions, and usually develops new polyps directly adjacent to an existing one. As with all other LPS, maintaining calcium and alkalinity levels is necessary, while excess phosphates and nitrates will slow growth. A beautiful reef tank addition, multiple open polyps will often times totally shield the skeletal structure from view, particularly on large colonies.
Care Recommendations: Their care needs to include low to medium lighting; low to medium water flow. When placing your new coral in the aquarium, make sure the coral is secure , so that it will not be knocked over which may damage the skin and cause an infection. It is not an outwardly aggressive coral, but should be provided with plenty of space between itself and other corals because it can expand twice its size during the day.
Propagation is as easy as cutting the 'stem' of the coral to separate polyps, although as this coral grows upwards it will not attach itself to reef structures, a gell superglue or marine epoxy works best for this chore.
Diet and Feeding: While possessing zooxanthella and being capable of photosynthesis, this coral appreciates regular feeding with any meaty marine foods able to fit into the expanded polyp's mouth. I feed occasionally with chunks of prawn or mysis, which is very easy due to the adhesiveness and reactivity of the tentacles.
Placement: Duncanopsammia axifuga is a relatively unaggressive coral, incapable of producing sweeper tentacles, and generally comes out underneath when competing with other stony corals. It is best left with plenty of space to grow, as well as relatively unaggressive neighbours.

Long Tentacle Plate Corals
Heliofungia actiniformis

Description:The Long Tentacle Plate Coral is a large polyp stony (LPS) coral often referred to as a Heliofungia Plate, Mushroom, or Disk Coral. With its long tentacles extended, it takes on the appearance of an anemone. It is a solitary, aggressive coral, and with its long tentacles can damage other corals that it comes in contact with. With placement in the aquarium, keep in mind that it will often inflate itself with water and expand to twice its size, with sweeper tentacles extending well beyond its base. It will do best on the bottom of a reef aquarium, preferably lying on a fine sandy substrate. The Long Tentacle Plate Coral is easy to maintain in the reef aquarium and makes an excellent candidate for the beginner reef aquarist.
Diet and location Requirements: It requires moderate lighting combined with moderate water movement within the aquarium. For continued good health, it will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water. It should be fed micro-plankton or brine shrimp.

Super Colored Short
Tentacle Plate Coral

Description:The Fungia Plate/Disc Coral is a large polyp stony (LPS) coral, often referred to as a Disk, Mushroom, Chinaman, Short Tentacle Plate, or Tongue Coral. It comes in a variety of colors, some very bright. Its genus name, Fungia, was taken directly from the Latin "fungus" (mushroom), which describes its calcareous skeleton shape.
Diet and location Requirements: The Fungia Plate Coral lives a solitary life atop the sand bed. It requires low to moderate water currents and moderate reef lighting for proper health. It is important that proper calcium and alkalinity levels are maintained. Place the Fungia Plate Coral on the sand bed along the bottom of the aquarium. Be careful when handling it to avoid damaging the delicate tissue on the underside. When placing the fungia plate give it some room since it can move across the sand bed slowly.
Supplementing its diet with the addition of trace elements, marine snow, phytoplankton, and food for filter feeders will help to insure its continued good health. You may also feed it small pieces of squid or shrimp once a week by placing a piece on the mouth in the center of the coral.

Purchased at a local swapmeet over a year ago, we have been growing colonies for over a year now. It requires moderate water currents and moderate to high reef lighting for proper health. It is important that proper calcium and alkalinity levels are maintained. Use of Kalkwasser Mix or a calcium reactor will be of great benefit.
Placement:War Coral is semi aggressive, expanding their sweeper tentacles at night, therefore it is important to leave space between them and neighbors in the reef aquarium.
Lighting: Medium to high lighting would serve this species well. Favia can be kept under high output fluorescent bulbs, but may benefit from more intense lighting. It will likely change its coloration depending on the lighting provided. Favia may require a longer acclimation period to intense lighting such as metal halides.
Location Requirements: We recommend keeping the coral in a relatively low flow area of the reef display. Too much flow could cause this particular species to become stressed and not extend fully.
Diet and Feeding: The War Coral will rely to a large extent on the products of their zooxanthellae, from the tanks lighting, however, in our experience, they also benefit from direct feeding. There are a variety of frozen fish foods available that make outstanding meals. We like to feed a mixture of meaty foods such as shrimp, fish, and squid with vitamin additives and highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFA). Cyclopeze also is a good choice. The size of the food is very important, it must be small enough that the polyp can fully ingest it.
Water Quality: War Corals are more tolerant of changes water quality making them an excellent coral for beginners. Though they are more tolerant, a stable environment is obviously better for the prolonged health & well being of these creatures.
Frag Difficulty: The War Coral is a fairly quick grower and will produce a significant amount of new growth every year. Fragments can be taken, and in our experience the easiest way is with a straight-edged razor blade. With the blade perpendicular from the edge of the coral, cut inwards about an inch. Repeat about an inch away from the first cut, then snap off the section between the two incisions. Even small frags tend to be extremely hardy and easy to acclimate.
Care Level: Maintenance for the War Coral is easy, making them excellent choices for the beginner to expert hobbyist.

 Aussie Blood Red Acan Hillae
Acanthastrea Hillae

Description: Acan Hillae is the largest of all Acan polyp varieties with each polyp sized between 1" to 2" wide when open. It is also one of the rarest varieties to find. Beyond that to find an incredible specimen like this, we were tickled to get our hands on this one. The way to identify the Acan Hillae is that the polyps are shaped identical to each other, and they are HUGE. Every hillae polyp is about the size of 3 Acan Howensis polyps. 
Placement: Place the Acan Hillae Coral on an exposed rock along the bottom two-thirds of the aquarium where currents will be able to supply it with necessary nutrients and trace elements. Although it is not crucial, Acan Hillae should be placed so that the plates are horizontal. Depending on the intensity of the light they may need to be placed low in the aquarium, or placed so that they get indirect Metal Halide light.
Lighting: Acan Hillae species are a hermatypic/photosynthetic coral. They do well in all forms of lighting from strong halides, to T5's, even VHO and power compact lighting seem to bring about the dramatic colors. A word of caution: Acan Hillaes lay down a relatively dense skeleton which makes them particularly vulnerable to high levels of Infra Red light, which some Metal Halide reflector combinations produce. Do not put Acan Hillae near the top of heavily illuminated aquariums.
Water Quality: Acan Hillae species are more tolerant of changes water quality making them an excellent coral for beginners. Though they are more tolerant, a stable environment is obviously better for the prolonged health & well being of these creatures.
Diet and Feeding: Feeding is not necessary but it does make the Acan Hillae more robust. This coral feeds mostly at night so offer food when the lights are off. Cyclops is a good choice.
Frag Difficulty: Acan Hillae species grow outward from all around their edges a large colony can nevertheless produce a significant amount of new growth every year. Fragments can be taken, and in our experience the easiest way is with a straight-edged razor blade. With the blade perpendicular from the edge of the coral, cut inwards about an inch. Repeat about an inch away from the first cut, then snap off the section between the two incisions. Even small frags tend to be extremely hardy and easy to acclimate.

Aussie Orange Crush Acanthastrea
Lordhowensis Coral Frag
Description: Acanthastrea lordhowensis are considered LPS corals that can have brilliant pigmentation patterns. We call the Acans with multiple colors like above "Rainbow Acans".. The Cadillacs of Acans, pricey but they are the best of the best..We have a few different ones, so if you order more than one, we will give you different ones for your collection.They are a hardy coral with amazing coloration.They do not require intense light to maintain their pigments, but to stimulate fast growth some feeding should be done. Their range of tolerance in lighting and flow is incredible. Just treat them like Favias and you won't go wrong.
Frag Difficulty: The propagation of Acanthastrea Lordhowensis is very easy. They simply love to be cut. Wet tile saws, band saws and dremel tools may be used to make appropriate cuts. Simple agitation of the coral will cause the polyps to retract. At this point you may cut out the desired amount of polyps. The only concern is that depending on the cut, you don’t go to shallow and actually cut into the corallites. Once the frag is made, it can be left as is in the sand bed where it will grow its own calcium skeleton or affixed to a piece of live rock where it will encrust over the rock. The preferred and more desirable method due to accelerated growth is to attach the frag to live rock and let it encrust over.
Lighting: Acanthastrea Lordhowensis are a hermatypic/photosynthetic coral. They require moderate to high lighting. Power compact , T-5 & Metal Halide fixtures will all work, but we recommend for best growth either T-5's or halides.
Water Quality: Acanthastrea Lordhowensis are more tolerant of changes water quality making them an excellent coral for beginners. Though they are more tolerant, a stable environment is obviously better for the prolonged health & well being of these creatures. Due to the heavy feeding requirements, a strong protein skimmer is recommended. Activated carbon as well as items such as ozone generators can help as well.
Current: Acanthastrea Lordhowensis require low to medium water movement. Excessive flow on the animal can cause polyp retraction or in worst-case polyp bailout (polyps actually detach from their skeleton).
Diet and Feeding: Acanthastrea Lordhowensis will readily accept feedings of minced meaty foods such as shrimp, mysis, clam and squid. Though not regularly required, these feeding will also help growth.
Placement: Will do great in the sand, as well as on the rock structure if placed securely. Generally placed low to middle of the tank due to lighting needs.

Chalice Corals
 The common name is Chalice Coral, the accurate name is Oxypora, one of the most hardy, the most undemanding corals we have encountered. Not too many hobbyists are familiar with the corals of the oxypora genus. In many ways, that’s not surprising. Until recently it recieved very little mention in aquarium books. The aquarist who purchases one is in for a rather pleasant surprise over the weeks to come. oxypora colors up remarkably in the home aquarium, almost invariably and without exception. Colors becoume fluorescent hot pinks, reds, oranges, greens ,blues, and purples. The coloration they display is amongst the brightest, most vivid and remarkable ever encountered with a coral. They do well in all forms of lighting from strong halides, to T5's, even VHO and power compact lighting seem to bring about the dramatic colors. Feeding is not necessary but it does make Chalice Corals more robust. Since it feeds mostly at night, offer food when the lights are off. Chalices will always benefit from an occasional feeding of marine snow, phytoplankton, or food for filter feeders also an occasional feeding of Cyclops is recommended. Some may suspect the photos below to be retouched. Not only are they not, we assure the reader that if anything they fall short of accurately depicting the vivid coloration of these corals. As many who have kept them have encountered, they’re an instant attention grabber sure to draw the immediate interest of those who see them in captivity.

Moonscape Chalice Coral Frags
Oxypora sp

Description: The Moonscape Chalice named because of the beautiful Blue moon coloration with craters that have green accents that will become stronger and stronger over time as it grows. A recent addition to reef aquariums the past few years, Chalice Corals are known to exhibit some of the most beautiful combinations of colors and patterns, making them the perfect reef aquarium addition. Chalice corals grow thin and flat with many bumps, sometimes in a plating fashion, and sometimes encrusting.

 WE WANT YOUR CORALS TO GROW - NOT JUST STAY ALIVE
Why Phytoplankton:
Phytoplankton is very important to marine life. It is the primary producers in the ocean. Crucial to the development and survival of most, if not all marine animals . But what is phytoplankton? It is just a fancy word for tiny floating plants (such as diatoms and dinoflagellates), which serve the same role in the food chains of the oceans as grass and shrubs serve on land; namely small things eat them. Many coral reef animals feed directly on phytoplankton. Some essential nutrients provided by phytoplankton cannot be synthesized by animals, and therefore are extremely important components of a healthy diet.
