Frogspawn Coral

Frogspawn Coral

The Frogspawn Coral is one of the most popular LPS corals in the industry due to its amazing appearance and movement it provides as well as colourations. Additionally, it is easy to understand how it achieved its name, as its polyp tips come together and look like a mass of fish eggs. 

The Frogspawn coral is aggressive and if given the opportunity it will sting neighbouring corals, therefore it is important to leave ample room between this coral and others. Though this can be a fairly difficult coral to maintain, if given to correct conditions and parameters it will thrive in captivity. The requirements it desires are moderate water movement and moderate lighting.  

The Frogspawn Coral also holds transparent sweeper tentacles which have the capability of extending out and reaching up to 6 inches in the search for food. 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.

  1. This is an incredibly beautiful and interesting coral. Friends assume it’s an anemone when they first see it, but it really is more vibrant. It is aggressive …place nothing but live rock immediately around it…but unlike a comparably aggressive anemone it can’t crawl around the tank! It is particularly interesting to watch it eat shrimp pieces– the polyps will retract and route the food to the “mouth.” Find it a corner area with good water flow, add the normal snow and small meat items, and it will be very happy.

  2. Nothing beats a green and purple tipped frogspawn coral under a blue light. Its colouration is amazingly vibrant and lights up my reef tank. Mine has grown over and is now slightly touching my hammer coral and I have no problems at all. Just make sure if it is touching another coral it is in the same family to avoid problems with stinging.
