Tank compatibility[edit | edit source]

This is a semi-aggressive coral and will sting other corals with its sweeping tentacles, so it should be placed with this in mind. Do not keep with fish or inverts that may nip at it.

Diet[edit | edit source]

This coral feeds mostly on zooxanthellae hosted within its body through photosynthesis. It will benefit from occasional supplementary feedings of micro-plankton and brine shrimp.

Feeding regime[edit | edit source]

Feed micro-plankton and brine shrimp when its tentacles are out in the evenings.
