Lobophyllia Coral

Lobophyllia Coral

The Lobophyllia Coral has plump fleshy polyps that cover its skeleton structure, and these polyps can be found in a huge variety of colours and textures. This fantastic coral will most definitely be an eye catching center piece. 

Requirements
The Elegance 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 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. 

Suggestions
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. 

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. I haven’t had any trouble keeping lobophyllia corals. I have mine in moderate light, moderate flow on the sand bed and feed it mysis or other small meaty foods once or twice a week after the lights are on moonlight (it puts out feeding tentacles at night, or any time it senses meaty foods in the water.) You do need good parameters like you would for any stony coral.
