Favia Coral

Favia Coral

The Favia Coral will always provide some of the best colour additions to any marine aquarium, colours that are difficult to find anywhere else. This is also a great coral for both the experienced and novice hobbyists due to the fact that it is very hardy and tolerant to water condition and parameter alterations. 

Though this brilliant coral is tolerant to a wide array of water conditions and parameters, it will thrive most exceptionally when housed in an aquarium with pristine and stable conditions. Additionally, it will extend fully when under moderate lighting and low water movement. 

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. 

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. This can be done with a turkey baster when its feeder tentacles are open at night.

  1. The best way to tell is by looking at the original part of the coral not the out growth but in my opinion it is a Favia as they are Cingular corallites. The new growth looks like shared walls indicating favites or even platygra hence why you look at the original spot

  2. Correct it would be more of a half cylinder if it was favites or the wall would extend to envelop two mouth almost but yes that bridge is what you look for as that means it was two separate walls that over time merged giving it the appearance of one but glad to help man nice piece you got there
