Live Corals: SPS Corals

 
   
When you buy corals from Aquarium Creations Online, 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 Compacts. 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.

SPS Coral Guarantee
All SPS Corals are considered advanced aquarist species, as such guarantees that SPS species offered will arrive alive and in great condition. Because of the increased level of care required for this particular species, they are all designated as "Advanced Aquarist Species," and due to the lighting and chemistry requirements, we suggest they only be placed in seasoned tanks with high power lighting and the correct chemistry levels. As an Advanced Aquarist Species they are not guaranteed after arrival.

Pocillopora Damicornis 2 Pack
Pocillopora Sp.

 

 

Description: Both Pink and Green Pocillopora Damicornis have short, delicate branches and grow mostly in a compact, round shape . Colonies are grown in both an elegant pink coloration or a Flourescent Green. Pocillopora coral has multiple, concave spores covering its calcified frame. Like other SPS corals, the shape of the P. damicornis is greatly affected by water conditions and locations. Two different species can look very similar in deeper waters, yet those same two can have a very different formation in shallow locations. Also, water temperature plays a big part on how fast they grow. They reproduce both sexually and asexually, commonly through fragmentation. Polyps are small and fuzzy and are very striking with a two-tone color. The polyps of the Pocillopora genus are immersed within the skeletal structure and can retract completely and instantly if there is any external stimulus.

Requirements:Water quality that is consistently excellent with flow that is substantially turbulent is quite nescessary. Strong lighting with at least 5 watts per gallon is necessary. Altering the corals position in the aquarium is how reef aquarists "fine tune" their specimen for the best results. To increase chances of success, do not attempt to keep Acropora in reef tanks less than a year old. The reason is that until a reef tank matures it will not do well for growing acropora.

Diet Requirements:These corals have small polyps and poor prey capture ability. They consume foods of very small particle size. For example, oyster eggs, with a particle size of about 50µ, are a good food for these corals. In a well fed tank with a variety of food, additional feeding might not be necessary.

Pink Pocillopora Damicornis
Pocillopora Sp.

Pocillopora is one of the easier to maintain SPS corals
Description: Pink Pocillopora Damicornis has short, delicate branches and grows mostly in a compact, round shape. Colonies have an elegant pink coloration and stay smaller in size than either the Pink & Green or the Green Damicornis. Pocillopora coral has multiple, concave spores covering its calcified frame. Because of its appearance, it is also known as Bowl, Cauliflower, Cluster, or Lacey Coral. Like other SPS corals, the shape of the P. damicornis is greatly affected by water conditions and locations. Two different species can look very similar in deeper waters, yet those same two can have a very different formation in shallow locations. Also, water temperature plays a big part on how fast they grow. They reproduce both sexually and asexually, commonly through fragmentation. Polyps are small and fuzzy and are very striking with a two-tone color. The polyps of the Pocillopora genus are immersed within the skeletal structure and can retract completely and instantly if there is any external stimulus. The P. damicornis can be brown, green, pink, purple, cream, and a combination of green and yellow, brown and pink. Other combinations have been aquacultured. Aquacultured specimens will have names related to color like Green Pocillopora Damicornis, Pink and Green Pocillopora, Pink Pocillopora Coral, and Cadmium Pocillopora Coral.

Hawkins Blue Echinata
Acropora Echinata

Actual color, not touched up

Description: Hawkins Echinata is a very delicate short branching coral that exhibits a turquoise to aquamarine coloration. The tips of the ORA Hawkins turn ultraviolet in color when under intense lighting. The absence of a protective slime coat on this coral’s tissue makes it more prone to drying out when out of the water and more sensitive to iodine based dips.

Characterized by their branching appearance, Acropora come in a limitless supply of colors, growth patterns, and varieties. Typically Acropora do best under high lighting and high flow. A metal halide or high-powered full spectrum lighting system is a must have for successful keeping of these corals. The exception to this rule is deepwater acropora, which are characterized by their smooth appearance with small and widely dispersed polyps. Deepwater acropora can handle medium to moderate lighting levels but can be adapted to higher levels of light.

In our systems we have found that keeping deep-water corals under moderate lighting levels will produce the best growth and coloration. We do tend to keep them off to the side of the metal halides as oppose to directly underneath them. We also recommend you keep deep waters at a mid to lower level placement in your reef. Your Acropora will also benefit from phytoplankton supplementation or other similar sized foods made for SPS.

  Aquacultured Green Bali Slimer
Staghorn Acropora
Acropora Yongei

Actual color, not touched up 
The Beautiful Green Bali Slimer has a very fuzzy appearance when the polyps are fully expanded. Called a Staghorn Acropora because this variety resembles a Deers Antlers.This species produces a large amount of mucous when disturbed by neighboring corals or by touch. It is a very fast growing species under the right conditions.The growth rate of this Green Bali Slimer is much more rapid than most of the other corals found in an established reef aquarium. It can also be cultured and grow into a new colony from living fragments or broken pieces, if conditions are ideal. It prefers a moderate to high light level combined with a strong alternating water current within the aquarium.This coral has proven to be very adaptable to lighting conditions. Does not need 400W MH lighting but strong actinic supplementation really make it “pop-out”. For continued good health, it will require the addition of supplemental calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae are hosted within its body, so it receives the majority of its nutritional requirements from photosynthesis. While it does not require additional food to maintain its health in the reef aquarium, it will feed on micro-plankton or foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates.

Description:Look at the spectacular coloration and form of this beauty originally from a reef around the island of Bali. Now, 4th generation, it is exquisitely colored. The more intense the lighting, the more deeply colored the Bali Tricolor becomes.
Requirements: A rare beauty, this coral likes high intensity light and strong current. Tank raised colonies are kept 14” below 250W 10KK Ushio metal halide lighting. Under great conditions they are developing intense purple coloration over the entire body surface. Perhaps it should be called a bicolor (purple with green polyps). The coral needs moderate to intense light to develop the purple over its entire surface. Purple branches can be maintained in weak to moderate lighting. It can also be cultured and grown into a new colony from living fragments or broken pieces, if conditions are ideal.
Diet Requirements: For continued good health, it will require the addition of supplemental calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water. The Purple Tri-color will thrive in a variety of lighting conditions, ranging from power compacts, VHO, T-5's up to the more intense metal halides.

"Green Velvet is a stocky, short branched coral with a deep metallic green color. Mature colonies grow to have a thick, stout body and irregular, odd branches. The corallites tend to be long and tubular and the polyps remain retracted during the daylight hours giving this coral a smooth appearance. The intense green coloration of the ORA Green Velvet often looks iridescent in the greenhouse sunlight and we find this coloration to be most similar to that of the Red Sea Green acro that we grew in years past. Not a very fast growing coral, but extremely hardy and tolerant of various lighting and flow conditions.

"Tri Color Valida"

Beautiful Bright Green Polyps, multicolor
branches and bright purple tips!

Description: The Tri-Color Valida is a beautiful coral that is purple in color, with green polyps and a green or brown base. Characterized by their branching appearance, Acropora come in a limitless supply of colors, growth patterns, and varieties. Typically Acropora do best under high lighting and high flow. A metal halide or high-powered full spectrum lighting system is a must have for successful keeping of these corals. The exception to this rule is deepwater acropora, which are characterized by their smooth appearance with small and widely dispersed polyps. Deepwater acropora can handle medium to moderate lighting levels but can be adapted to higher levels of light.

In our systems we have found that keeping deep-water corals under moderate lighting levels will produce the best growth and coloration. We do tend to keep them off to the side of the metal halides as oppose to directly underneath them. We also recommend you keep deep waters at a mid to lower level placement in your reef. Your Acropora will also benefit from phytoplankton supplementation or other similar sized foods made for SPS.

Approximate Purchase Size

Description:
The Sour Apple Seriatapora sp. is also called the green tipped orange Seriatapora. A real beauty with Green tips and a pumpkin orange body. They formations intertwine into a twisted nest, with the branches fusing together as they touch in certain areas. The branches, depending on the wave action where they come from, can be thin or stout, and can be widely space or compact. The S. hystrix is often found in protected areas, and has delicate branches that taper into a point.

Tank Requirements:Water quality that is consistently excellent with flow that is substantially turbulent is quite nescessary. Strong lighting with at least 5 watts per gallon is necessary. Altering the corals position in the aquarium is how reef aquarists "fine tune" their specimen for the best results. To increase chances of success, do not attempt to keep Acropora in reef tanks less than a year old. The reason is that until a reef tank matures it will not do well for growing acropora.
Diet Requirements:These corals have small polyps and poor prey capture ability. They consume foods of very small particle size. For example, oyster eggs, with a particle size of about 50µ, are a good food for these corals. In a well fed tank with a variety of food, additional feeding might not be necessary. 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.

This very unusually colored Seriatopora sp. was collected during a trip to Ponape in 2004. It has a unique bi-colored nature to its pigmentation. The base branches are brightly green colored while the polyps are pink. This coral is a lower light coral. When placed in moderate lighting the coral develops its unique and intense bi-color pigmentation. If positioned under bright light the base branches turn a lighter green to cream with pink polyps. Water current for this one should be moderate to weak.

"Ponape Bird Nest"
Seriatopora guttatus

Actual color, not touched up 
Description:The Ponape Birdsnest is a strain of Seriatopora which has been an iconic coral in the American reef aquarium hobby since 2003. This cool and unique birdsnest can show you a variety of nice colors. I see yellow, gold, lavender, pink, and shades of light green! Of course some of that depends on the light you keep it in. The short, thin branches with pronounced corallites give the branches a bumpy texture. The polyps of this coral are small and not very noticeable. This is a fast growing coral that thrives under a wide range of lighting conditions, however, it seems that slightly lower lighting conditions help enhance the green coloration. Easy to keep and a fast grower, this is one of the more reasonably priced Tyree corals. I like it a lot because you just don't see birdsnest corals that look anything like it! Besides the interesting and pleasing colors, it has a great growing shape. I just can't imagine anyone not liking this coral....

It is found in a variety of shades of pink. These are very delicate, but beautiful corals that offer a variety of shape and bright coloration to a reef aquarium. The ideal conditions for the Acropora coral is an established reef aquarium with bright lighting provided by preferably intense metal halides. They can also thrive under multiple VHO's, T-5's or compact fluorescents if placed high in the aquarium. Under the right conditions, the growth rate of the Acropora coral is much more rapid than most of the other corals found in an established reef aquarium.To maximize their growth rate, it is imperative to maintain a high pH, alkalinity and calcium levels, and to keep phosphate and nitrate levels as close to zero as possible. If conditions are ideal, it can also be cultured and grown into a new colony from living fragments or broken pieces.Along with lighting and water quality, Acropora corals prefer strong, intermittent water flow within the aquarium. The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae are hosted within its body, so it receives the majority of its nutritional requirements from photosynthesis.

 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.
