This beautiful aquacultured bubble coral is a rare treat! Propagating this species is not easy but this coral is fairly hardy and does best on a rocky ledge in the lower portions of the tank where they can recieve low flow and moderate lighting (PAR 150-200). They can get long sweeper tentacles so make sure to give it plenty of space from other corals to avoid chemical warfare. They also enjoy meaty foods such as mysis and krill. Bubble corals are believed to regulate the amount of light it recieves by expanding or contracting its bubble size. This was aquacultured here at K&P where the original colony has been in captivity nearly 4 years.
All corals at K&P Aquaculture specified as aquacultured have been tank raised under Aquaillumination and Red Sea LEDs. Our parameters are kept relatively stable using dosing pumps distributing Calcium supplements in the morning and alkalinity supplements at night.
