2013-12-04 07:07:43 -0700
Spongodes is a Montipora sp. with an interesting growth pattern and coloration. It creates a substantial encrusting plate formation with thick fingers projecting upwards from the plates. The plates and fingers have a very attractive combination of contrasting brown and green colors. Under intense lighting, the new growth on this coral turns vibrant purple. Benefit from feedings of marine snow, phytoplankton, or food for filter feeders.

aquarist_me updated Rose Acropora millepora
2013-11-22 09:36:17 -0700
These species of Rose Acropora millepora Corals are known for their extremely rapid growth rate. The Rose Acropora milleporas a light pink color that will develop white to light peach growth tips as it matures. These Rose Acropora millepora Corals prefer a moderately high light level combined with strong intermittent water current within the aquarium. For continued good health, it will require the addition of supplemental calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water. These aquacultured corals are fragmented from corals that have been raised in captivity for at least 3 or 4 generations. They are not fragmented from wild harvested corals; which makes them hardier than their wild counterparts. Being fully encrusted, it enables them to ship better with less stress when compared to newly fragmented corals. They will thrive in a variety of lighting conditions, ranging from power compacts, VHO and T-5's, up to the more intense metal halides. Alter their position in the aquarium depending on the lighting, and provide at least 3 watts per gallon using one of the lighting systems mentioned above.
