Pectinia Alcicornis is a great easy LPS coral. It is best to give these corals some space in the tank as they can send out long sweeper tentacles when feeding. The pectinia prefers low-moderate lighting (PAR 80-150) with low-moderate flow. While this species has done well in captivity, it is listed as vulnerable on the endangered charts. This piece is locally aquacultured, WYSIWYG.
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.
