merulina ampliata
« on: December 17, 2011, 10:39:09 AM »


Described as one of the most difficult coral to keep by many sites but to be honest I have found it to be very easy with correct feeding,light & flow. These are a slow growing coral so any piece of a decent size does carry a heavy price tag. Worth it in my opinion tho

Mine is sat on the sand bed in a 30" deep tank with 250w 14k above it.

FLOW

Good flow is a must! It will help it grow in all sorts of shapes.

Lighting

Strong lighting is required to help it reach full potential. weak lighting will lead to a brown shade which is a real shame for such a vivid coral

Feeding

I have always fed Calanus power mixed with saltwater first, After 15 Min's when sweepers are out I feed mysis/rotifier mix.

Caution

They put out long sweepers so give it room. Also to note, When fragging wear gloves as I found out they can expel toxin and creates shooting pains in the arm which your holding it in.
