The Chalice Coral truly has the most amazing colourings out of all corals in the ocean. It hosts a mind blowing array of the most vibrant blues, purples, pinks, reds and more. Each Chalice is unique and you will not find two identical and this is what makes it so special.
Caring for this amazing coral is not actually as hard as you would imagine, and as long as you follow the basic requirements it should thrive in the home aquarium. The requirements that need to be met are that your aquarium holds low to moderate lighting and low to moderate water flow. Additionally, it is recommended that the placement of this coral should be placed on live rock as it will form a encrusting habit and spread along it as it matures.
The Chalice Coral can also release transparent sweeper tentacles that will most definitely harm those more docile invertebrates and corals if necessary. Therefore, it is important to also place this coral with enough space around to prevent any stinging from taking place.
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. For continued good health, it will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.
