The Birdsnest Coral is one of the most delicate SPS corals and extra care needs to be taken when positioning it within your aquarium. It holds very thin branches that can effortlessly be broken if knocked into anything or handled too heavily. They also come in a variety of marvellous colourations that range from around 12 pink shades.
It is important to make sure your aquarium has moderate to high lighting and moderate to high water flow in order to reiterate its natural environment. However, the benefits will pay off as the Birdnest Coral has been stated by many hobbyists as being one of the fasted growing SPS in the market today, and it makes a excellent addition to any reef tank.
For continued good health, it will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water. The Birdnest Coral can thrive under a variety of lighting conditions from LEDs to T5's or halides, however it is important to monitor how the coral is doing and alter its position in the tank in order to meet its needs.
Though this coral will attain the majority of its nutritional requirements from the lighting through photosynthesis, it will also benefit from additional food sources in the form of micro-plankton.
