The skeleton of the Trachyphyllia Brain Coral may has an oval or figure eight shape on top and forms a point at the bottom of the coral making it easy to place in the aquarium . This coral exhibits brilliant fluorescent colors under actinic lighting. These easy to keep LPS corals are great for beginners.
Placement: Mount the Trachyphyllia Brain Corals on an exposed rock or ledge low in the aquarium where they will receive low currents and low to moderate lighting. They also do very well when placed directly on the sand bed provided Gobies and inverts don’t bury them with sand. They are susceptible to stings from other corals so give them 3-4″ of space around them.
Feeding: Although symbiotic algae called zooxanthellae hosted within them supply most of their nutritional requirements through photosynthesis they do benefit from supplemental feedings once or twice per week. Offer mysis shrimp, and other chopped meaty foods when their tentacles are open.
Lighting & Flow Requirements: The Trachyphyllia Brain Coral requires moderate water flow and moderate lighting (PAR 150-250). T5’s, Metal Halides, or LED’s can all grow Trachyphyllia Corals when the proper PAR levels are provided.
