Alternative names[edit | edit source]
- Acropora hyacinthus
Tank compatibility[edit | edit source]
- A peaceful coral that should not be kept with fish or invertebrates that may nip it, nor with any other corals that may sting it with their long sweeping tentacles.
Diet[edit | edit source]
- This coral contains the symbiotic algae zooxanthellae from which it receives the majority of its nutritional requirements through photosynthesis. It generally does not require any supplemental feedings but may pick up any other micro-plankton or foods designed for other tank invertebrates.
Environment Specifics[edit | edit source]
- This coral does best in an established tank. It prefers a high water current and a high light level (400 to 600PAR), so does best in the middle to upper regions of the tank depending on the lighting. Needs stable water parameters to thrive, and adiquate calcium to grow.
Identification[edit | edit source]
- A smooth skinned SPS coral that has small polyps at the end of its colored branches. Mostly white or light grey with a small amount of coloration at the end of its tips. Table like growth.
