Bubble Coral

Bubble Coral

The Bubble Coral is a magnificent LPS coral that will bring a unique viewing point to any reef tank. Its colouration can vary greatly from whites to greens, and its polyps are large fleshy bubbles that cover its entire skeleton structure.  

Requirements
The Bubble Coral will most certainly be a thriving coral in the home aquarium when all conditions and parameters are correct. It will require a low level moderate water flow in addition to moderate lighting in order to satisfy its needs. It is important to not have very strong flow blasting directly at the coral as it may cause the polyps to not fully expand or even make it start receding. Due to the fact that these polyps are extremely delicate and can be punctured easily, it is important to only handle this coral by its skeleton structure. Furthermore, similar to many LPS this coral also holds transparent sweeper tentacles which can extend up to 6 inches and will still neighbouring corals if they are close enough. 

Suggestions
It is also a viable decision to add trace elements into your water when housing this coral in order to maintain its good health, for example calcium and strontium. 

Feeding
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 brine shrimp or micro-plankton.

  1. This is a truly amazing coral! It is very interesting to watch, and adds diversity to the aquarium. Ease of care makes it a supreme choice for the beginner.

  2. Mt friend gave me a bubble coral that appeared not to have any flesh left at all, I kept it in my tank and it recovered enough to have to get rid of it once it started to recover it went crazy. Keep in a low flow area, make sure there is no other corals around it to bother it, I found leathers in particular seem to bother mine. Feed it, I like to use mysis shrimp and I also feed my tank oyster eggs.
