The Lordhowensis Coral is a striking color variety of the popular Acanthastrea lordhowensis Coral delivering triple the visual thrills with its unique color combinations. This highly architectural colonial coral immediately increases visual interest to the reef aquarium with its rhythmic and geometric growth habit and vibrant coloration.
In the reef aquarium, the Lordowensis Coral is incredibly hardy and fast growing, tolerating a wide variety of conditions, including both low and moderate lighting and moderate water currents. Though tolerant of a wide range of aquarium conditions, the robust Lordhowensis Coral will do best in an established reef aquarium with stable conditions.
Be aware that Lordhowensis Corals are voracious nocturnal predators and competitively extrude mesenterial filaments and digest organisms within reach. Great care must be taken in determining the placement and distance between Lordhowensis colonies and other species of stony corals. Target feed minced mysis shrimp, enriched brine shrimp and smaller pieces of other meaty marine foods for best growth.
Target feed minced meaty foods and zooplankton for best growth and frag recovery time. The use of a quality protein skimmer helps maintain water quality and combat the effects heavy feeding can have on aquarium water quality.
