Great hardy aquacultured branching coral that does very well for beginners looking to get into SPS. This fast growing species can tolerate a range of lighting and flow, but has been found to grow best in moderate to high lighting (PAR 150-250) with moderate to high flow. Our SPS corals are broadcast fed our Nannochloropsis phytoplankton to insure healthy tissue and color.
