Kenya Trees

The Kenya Tree Coral is definitely one of the more unique looking corals you can purchase, as it hosts an smoothing pink polyp colouration and elegant branching structure that sways majestically in the water. It is not hard to understand why this coral has such high demand, as it will become a highly eye catching aspect of any reef aquarium. 

Requirements
This coral will thrive but only in the conditions it requires, it will need to be housed in a aquarium with moderate levels of flow and lighting. This coral is a relatively fast grower and therefore when positioning it into your aquarium it is important to make sure there is ample room around it to stop it interfering with other corals. For continued good health, it will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.

Suggestions
This coral is relatively easy to care for, but its ability to grow very quickly may cause it to overgrow onto some locations and block out lighting that other corals need. Therefore a common process is to continuously frag this coral as it begins to get too big for the location you want it for. 

Feeding
The Kenya Tree Coral will absorb some of its needed nutrients through your aquariums lighting, however it will also rely on filtering out foods in order to satisfy its needs. This can be done relatively easily by adding food sources such as Micro-plankton and brine shrimp to the water.

  1. This excellent coral grows very fast. I have had mine for 18 months; it is so full and bushy that I can’t see the base once it opens during the day. Mine got so bushy that appendages broke off and are now growing in different parts of my tank. Very easy to reattach in other areas of the tank.

  2. This coral is gorgeous, easy to grow, and spreads pretty rapidly. In 6 months the small plug I acquired has grown to cover about 2 square feet of space under metal halides and high flow with daily feedings. It does not seem inclined to overgrow other corals. The constant pulsing is hypnotic to watch. It has grown about 2 inches in height in my aquarium and resembles a bed of beautiful wild flowers.
