Coral Care: Cyphastrea Coral are easy to keep and grow well in most reef aquariums. They are very hearty and will thrive even if your water parameters aren’t perfect. Dose properly with calcium, alkalinity and magnesium and they will grow fast! Cyphastrea love lower light conditions so place your piece at the lower third of your tank and move it up over time for best acclimation results.
Water Flow: Medium
Light Intensity: Low
Feeding: Symbiotic algae called Zooxanthellae supplies the majority of their nutritional requirements through photosynthesis. However, they do benefit from direct feedings of brine shrimp and mysis shrimp.
Location(s): Green Lantern Cyphastrea are from the Indo Pacific region including Fiji, Tonga, Solomon Islands, and the Great Barrier Reef.
Acclimation: Proper acclimation is extremely important considering the stress imposed on live corals and fish during the shipping process. Please review our Acclimation Guide before introducing your new fish and/or corals to your aquarium.
